Pittsburgh 'Stealers'

I sure hope this NFL Lockout thing gets resolved soon because what I saw today was a goddamned greek tragedy. Those poor NFL Players have taken to trolling area malls to sell their wares in order to make ends meet. And by wares, I mean doodling on a piece of paper and having their pictures made. Over the weekend, Heinz Ward and a few of his 'no neck' friends from the Pittsburgh Steelers were in my local mall meeting fans and what not. But it broke my heart when I learned they were having to whore themselves out to their fans by charging $150.00 for an autograph and $180.00 to have their pictures made with them.  I had no idea things had gotten so bad for these young, over compensated affluent men-chrildren. Here's how I know they must really be hurting; No discounts were offered to mall employees or even the teenagers working at the event who wanted to meet them too. I fear for their families! What is a young millionaire supposed to do? They're not allowed to go to "work" until this disagreement with their bosses is resolved and one can only play Call to Glory and Madden so many times before the appeal of digital violence loses it's allure. No, the only recourse they have is to travel around the country begging their fans, most of whom can't afford tickets to the games, to pay $180.00 for a picture.  Well, I hope you're happy Republicans. This recession is now starting to effect your own kind and as Heinz and his buddies have found out, 22 Million dollars just doesn't go as far as it used to...
