GTOG Christmas Podcast: On the Steelers, Roethlisberger, and Why Everything Has Been Terrible Since We Started This Site

On this special Christmas Podtacular, we talk about the Steelers' loss to the Bengals and how we evaluate Ben Roethlisberger. We also look back on how horrible things have been since we started the blog and ask for reader/listener advice going forward. Plus a special appearance from Mrs. Artistry.

  1. If the Bachelor producers lock out the contestants this January I will LITERALLY KILL MYSELF.

    Also, I vote to split the blogs: one about Pittsburgh sports and the Bachelor and another about the Green Beans.

  2. GTOB anyone? Split them up and if you aren't happy, stick them back together.

  3. you cant make this stuff up...

    "Obviously, as you progress throughout a season, everyone is a little injured and everyone is a little banged up. Every week, you get a little more banged up. But no excuses from me."

  4. Just realized I meant to come here and comment after listening to the podcast, and I never did. (The danger of listening to podcasts while I walk to/from work - if I hear anything I want to follow up on, I usually forget by the time I'm back at a computer.)

    Anyway, if this feedback is not too late, I'm in the middle of that venn diagram of people who enjoy both the sports and Bachelor commentary, so I like it it as-is. That said, I follow the blog through google reader. So if you split it, as long as I can subscribe to two feeds instead of the one, I'm fine.

  5. I just finished moving from CA to GA but I will listen to this and comment back ASAP. Just got internet turned back on today.

  6. It's so hard to explain, but if you follow the blog from the beginning to now, the union of sports and The Bachelor makes perfect sense. On the other hand, I think it's totally correct that a split might be necessary to be "taken seriously", so to speak, by both fan bases. No typical, illiterate, beer-drinking football fan is going to come back to a site with Bachelor content no matter how much they love the Steelers. As weird as I think it would be for us in the overlap, a split makes the most "business" sense.
