Hey — it only took me four months to publish my second blog post of the year! And it’s almost exactly the same as my first post!
Anyway, come see a show this month…
Way back in 2007 or so, I used to run an open mic at the Affogato Coffee Shop on Lincoln Avenue in Bellevue.
I stopped doing the open mic shortly after my fifth kid was born, and the coffee shop closed a few years later for reasons unrelated to my kids.
More info is available in the flyer below. Come check it out!
I’m not sure why either.
But if you’re curious about what it was like being a struggling novice comedian in Pittsburgh from 2006 through 2011, you’ve come to the right place. Relive the excitement of the Bill Cowher era! Follow the links to obsolete MySpace profiles! Admire my shaved head and scraggly goatee! Taste the delicious Fish Sandwiches!
So Mike Tomlin is now 2-for-4 in reaching the AFC Championship game during his tenure with the Steelers. His 50% average bests even Bill Cowher’s 40% average, which I lauded in this post from 2007.
It never fails to astound me how consistently good the Steelers have been for the past four decades (15 Championship Game appearances — the most of any team in either conference) and the Pirates can’t even luck into a winning season.
PS. Come see me this Friday at Mike Wysocki’s comedy showcase at the Corner Cafe. 18th Street South Side. 9pm. $5. NEW TAILGATING JOKES!
The holidays are a time when you gamely try to resurrect old traditions, such as “enjoying snow” and “not getting aggravated.”
And no tradition is more in need of resurrection than the Tom Musial Dot Com Lyrics Quiz.
Here are lyrics from ten of my favorite winter/holiday songs, a surprising number of which contain prominent references to alcohol.
Post a comment with your guesses and you will gain the recognition of being the first commenter on this website in more than nine months.
