And you thought you had a bad day?
There is hope, after all.
If you smell what The Rock is cooking, you probably are one up the West Virginia jabroni who had everybody talking earlier this week.
But let's say we do live in a world where a celebrity with ties to professional wrestling would run for and win the United States' highest office... oh, wait.
Well, uh, who's to say the next person to try it should be "the people's champ"?
With Pittsburgh (not to mention the baseball world) waiting for the end of Andrew McCutchen's rousing run with the Pirates, we thought it an opportune time to look back at other wildly popular athletes who didn't finish playing in our City of Champions.
No. 10 Gary Anderson (Steelers)
You know it's a football town when a place kicker makes this list. You know it's Pittsburgh when people are legitimately upset said place kicker isn't higher on this list. (Tribune-Review)
No. 9 Pierre Larouche (Penguins)
From the man himself: "I was Mario before we had Mario." Well, not quite. But given his enduring popularity, it's hard to believe "Lucky Pierre" played for three NHL franchises after the Penguins. (Tribune-Review)
No. 8 Neil Walker (Pirates)
His dad was one of Robert Clemente's best friends. He was taught second base by Bill Mazeroski. We called him "The Pittsburgh Kid." Hello? (Christopher Horner | Tribune-Review)
No. 7 Kent Tekulve (Pirates)
Few have ever made the side-arm delivery or turtlenecks look better. But it's still seems weird to think of "Teke" bringing either to Philadelphia or Cincinnati. (Tribune-Review)
No. 6 Max Talbot (Penguins)
Never more than in Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Final, "Mighty Max" is still playing hockey. That his first stop after Pittsburgh was Philadelphia admittedly bothered even him. (Christopher Horner | Tribune-Review)
No. 5 Mike Webster (Steelers)
Took a talent such as Dermontti Dawson to push "Iron Mike" out of Pittsburgh and into Kansas City for a final NFL season of snapping then mauling. Though it worked out for the Steelers, we're still not over it. (Tribune-Review)
No. 4 Jaromir Jagr (Penguins)
The only Penguin to play for a couple of Stanley Cup champions, win multiple scoring titles, claim an MVP, hold the title of "best hockey player on the planet" and still garner booing by some fans in a city where he kept the franchise afloat. (Chaz Palla | Tribune-Review)
No. 3 Rod Woodson (Steelers)
Watching "Hot Rod" while awaiting "one for the thumb" was a treat for the Steelers Nation. Watching him end up winning his lone Super Bowl with Baltimore felt like the cruelest of tricks. (Tribune-Review)
No. 2 Ralph Kiner (Pirates)
A loss and a blast is what Pirates faithful who packed Forbes Field often witnessed during his historic run in Pittsburgh. When traded, the Pirates moved the only man to lead the National League in home runs for seven straight seasons and the greatest draw in franchise history. (Tribune-Review)
No. 1 Franco Harris (Steelers)
Three decades after allowing him to infamously finish his football playing in Seattle, Steelers chairman Dan Rooney had this to say of the franchise's all-time leading rusher: "If we ever do retire another number after Joe (Greene), it should be 32 for Franco." (Tribune-Review)
You'd think I could at least grab a glass of water ...
It's been said that a picture is worth a thousands words. Well, what is the worth of a handshake between two of the planet's most powerful (and richest) men?
Uh, probably best to not answer that question.
The grip-off Friday between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin started a conversation at the upgruv offices about our favorite famous handshakes.
