World Vision, a charity company that donates clothes to places in need, has received more than $2 million in Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Champions gear. The clothes will go to Zambia, Nicaragua, Romania, Haiti and Armenia and include t-shirts, hats, towels and sweatshirts. The NFL, Dicks Sporting Goods and Sports Authority have all donated clothing. The countries were selected to decrease chances of the losing gear appearing on eBay. Talk about last season’s clothes…
While you were wondering how the Pittsburgh Steelers could miss that field goal or what Will.i.am was wearing during the halftime show, these are the best commercials of Super Bowl XLV. Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers!
10. Coca-Cola: To think the answer to all of the US and Mexico’s border control problems is a bottle of Coke?
9. Pepsi Max: Only fitting for Pepsi and Coke to round out the first two spots…
8. Best Buy: Some say the Ozzy Osbourne-Justin Bieber commercial may not have lived up to its hype… but not if you have Bieber Fever!
7. CareerBuilder: Business professional monkeys in this economy?
6. Doritos: The first of two Doritos commercials to make TJC Top 10 list
5. Pepsi Max: Though I liked No.9 better than this Pepsi Max commercial, I find it only fitting since this website is called Thejerseychaser.com.
4. Volkswagen Force: The extended commercial for the Volkswagen Force, and might I add may the force be with you.
3. Doritos: USA Today had Doritos’ Pug commercial and our No.6 clip ranked higher, what do you guys think? (more…)
It seems Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is taking the work hard-play hard approach to the Super Bowl. Big Ben and his teammates were out on the town Tuesday partying at a piano bar in Fort Worth, Texas. The notorious quaterback racked up an $800 bar tab and tipped an additional $200 as him and his teammates sang Billy Joel’s Piano Man.
When asked about his night on the town, Big Ben said: “It was a superstition and tradition on Tuesday night. I take the linemen out to dinner. We went out for barbecue and then we wanted to hear some live music. We just had an enjoyable night.”
Surprisingly, Green Bay Packers quaterback Aaron Rodgers was absent from the festivities.
In preparation of the Pittsburgh Steelers trip to the Super Bowl, a Pittsburgh hosiptal is swaddling all baby newborns in Steelers Terrible Towels.
St. Clair Hospital Family Birth Center supervisor Sharon Johnson said, “They’re born Steelers fans here in Pittsburgh.” From today until next Sunday, all babies born will be wrapped in the Black and Yellow rally towel. The hospital is following suite from a tradition they started in 2008. The baby towel must have brought good luck to the city since the team won that year!
