Day 495 of 365 More.

Well, that got your attention didn’t it? More on that later.

So, at long last I’ve finished the coffee table book of the first year of 365 Days. Talk about a labor of love. There’s not just the straight year of self-portraits, editing the book was a bitch and a half. But its finished now, my life story, at least for a year, with forward by Stephen Poff. I couldn’t be happier. www.blurb.com/my/book/detail/152385 if you’re interested, and you know you are.

Back to the picture at hand. My movie co-star and partner in crime, Sarah, called me a couple weeks ago and said she had this great idea for a photoshoot. She wanted to do a series of sexy Steelers themed pin-ups. Totally cheesey. Totally clichΓ©. A sexy girl in her underwear and a football jersey. About as corny and hokey as you can get. So naturally, I was totally up for it.

Then the Steelers started to really suck. Things became bleak. Playoff chances were in doubt. It became evident. We couldn’t just think about doing the shoot. Now we HAD to do the shoot. The team was depending on us. We are fans. We are superfans. We did what we had to do. We rose to the occasion.

In this case rising to the occasion involved packing up my studio lights and *ahem* procuring temporary access to a locker room in an undisclosed location. The big problem see is that Sarah is female, and I’m male, and there really aren’t any lockerrooms that are ok with both of us being in there at the same time, and seeing as how a pin-up shoot takes both a model and a photographer, we had obvious issues here.

So we kinda sneakily smuggle me into a small women’s locker room that we learned we could get access to and she went and got dressed for the shoot in the adjoining bathroom while I set up the lights. About 10 min. later, a security guard came banging at the door. Repeatedly. Finally Sarah answered.

Guard: Who’s in there?

Sarah pokes her head out the door.

Sarah: Hello? I’m getting dressed.
Guard: Are you a man or a woman?
Sarah: I’m a woman.
Guard: Are you sure?
Sarah: Yes, pretty sure.
Guard: Let me see your clothes.

Sarah steps out of the bathroom in nothing but bra and panties.

Guard: Ok then. Someone said you looked like a man going in there.
Sarah: Well, I’m not.
Guard: Is anyone else around here?
Sarah: Not that i can see.

And then finally he left. Totally terrifying. Totally crazy. Totally exhilarating. We shot the locker room portion of our shoot as quickly as we possibly could then she got dressed and we sprinted out of there. Once we got back to my house we shot a few more, including today’s 365, in the studio. The shots will of course be posted later, once I edit them. (I’m still like two models back in finishing up photoshoot editing). But I had to get this one up tonight. Not just for 365. But because I almost got arrested taking one for the team tonight and the Steelers are playing tomorrow night.

So here I am, on hands and knees, begging, between the thighs of a beautiful, half-naked girl. So, Steelers… we did it for you guys. You can do it for us.

Please?

    @M Styborski: footballs? They’re available at most sporting goods and toy stores.

    @Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan: thanks. And that’s good to know… Next time I am arrested for trespassing to take illicit photos, I know who to call.

    @DeHoll: we’ll see.

    @KatColorado: thanks. Hopefully all the other, not me having, shots will be better.

    @ZuqR: I have some other models to get through first but they’ll be up soon enough.

    @spresogna: you are in fact a woman. I could tell. And yeah, hopefully they’ll get the message on this one.

    @Jack Scoresby: thanks, yo

    That’s a completely awesome story…LOVE it.

    …and just be happy your boys are at least in the hunt.

    Like you, those of us in Denver have been spoiled over the years…missing the playoffs for a 2nd straight year seriously SUCKS. πŸ™

    @d.rex: yeah. It just kinda sucks because we started the year out so well that everyone kinda forgot that we have a first year coach and really aren’t supposed to be winning games.

    the defensive backfield has been hideous as of late, all year actually, benching Anthony Smith was a no-brainer of a decision for this week, but overall the defense needs to improve or we will go nowhere fast in the playoffs…Willie should run well tonight, the dome and no bad weather should be a bonus, we should have ran the ball more last week, watching Taylor kick our behinds was not enjoyable, a more decisive running attack to set up a potent passing attack has been largely ignored this year, esp. notable when we have lost games…

    @nonac.: to be completely fair, he is a first year coach. It’s a wonder we’re doing even this well. That said, he has the ability. The team has the ability. We should be doing better.

    i totally agree, the Tomlin era has ushered in a new legacy for this franchise, he’s done one helleva job year-to-date. I admire his poise and his attitude when it comes to coaching this team and he so damn young, that impresses me further. I only assume the future is brighter than this slump we’ve hit.
