Thank you Hines Ward! Not only for your effort on the field, and not only for retiring as a Pittsburgh Steeler, but most of all, thank you for that smile… and the good feelings. The tribute song that Star 100.7 FM put together says it all.

Bubba Demonstrates the Steelers Version of Tebowing

Tim Tebow, TebowingAll the bored people around the world that were obsessed with planking are now doing something less dangerous but even more boring. It’s called Tebowing. As an answer to the Tebowing phenomenon, our friend Bubba from Star 100.7 produced a video tutorial on how to do the Steelers version of Tebowing… Steel-Bowing! Now we just have to pray that the Steeler Nation’s Steel-Bow prayers are more convincing than all the Tebowers out there. This is almost as good as the Steelers Baptism. Happy Steel-Bowing, Pittsburgh!

“Leading Up To Christmas” Star 100.7’s New Holiday Song

“Leading Up To Christmas” Star 100.7′s New Holiday Song

We live in a time of exaggerated cynicism and sarcasm. Just look at the comments on YouTube, or the 140 character anecdotes on Twitter. That’s why when Bubba sent the link to Star 100.7’s new Christmas song, expectations weren’t set very high. You can imagine the feeling of surprise and joy when the song started playing…

You helped us write it. We used your lyrics. Last night our intern Adi, Heather Abraham from KDKA TV2, Brandon Hudson from WPXI 11, 13 year old Carley, and a group of 7 year olds from South Fayette (Sydney, Angela, Melena, Amanda and Aleia) came up and sang the song. Let us know what you think!

Happy Easter: Peeps Olympics

We’ve all gotten Peeps for Easter candy when we were kids. You either like them or hate them and even when you liked them you couldn’t ever really eat more than two could you? OK, so you know, there was NO eating of Peeps in the making of the first annual JR Bubba Shelley Easter Peeps Olympics!

We are somewhat leery about actually consuming peeps, being that they are indestructible and all. But it wouldn’t feel like Easter without them. Luckily, the Star 100.7 Morning Show came up with something far less boring than a Volkswagen Beetle with a fiberglass mold on its roof (aka the Peepster).

Watch the video above to see who wins the gold medal in the Pittsburgh Peep Olympics.

Peeps are sometimes jokingly described as “indestructible”. In 1999, scientists at Emory University performed experiments on batches of Peeps to see how easily they could be dissolved, burned or otherwise disintegrated, using such agents as cigarette smoke, boiling water and liquid nitrogen. They claimed that the eyes of the confectionery “wouldn’t dissolve in anything”. Furthermore, Peeps are insoluble in acetone, water, diluted sulfuric acid, and sodium hydroxide. Concentrated sulfuric acid seems to have effects similar to the expected effects of sulfuric acid on sugar. -Wikipedia
