Sports Bio

Steelers and Penguins and Pirates . I am a Pittsburgh boy through and through. If you know people from this area, you know how we are. My greatest sports moments include trying on a super bowl ring, Actually drinking from Lord Stanley's Cup and I once scored 4 touchdowns in a single game at Polk High. No wait that was Al.

A laughing stock no more: A few years ago when the Pirates set the record for most losing seasons in a row among the 4 "major" sports I took the opportunity to rant on this page. Last year when the streak hit 20 I did again. After 20 years of memories of Sid Bream beating Bonds throw from left I would like to thank the Pirates for giving me something to cheer about again. The Pirates finished the year 94-68. I number no one would have guessed at the start of the season. Players from the minors moved up and made an impact(Cole last night among others). The team made moved at the deadline to add offense not dump salary. They were run like a real franchise this year. Most importantly they made a city care again. PNC Park packed and rocking is amazing. After 20 years of frustration we finally have a winner. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and we wont have to wait another 20. This team has a solid young core and some real good pitching. As long as ownership doesnt trade it all away Pirate baseball is back!

Next year the streak will be old enough to buy a drink.: EPIC FAIL. The Pirates just finished up their 20th losing season in a row after being 16 games over .500 earlier in the year. I first posted this 3 years ago when they set the record and will every year until the streak ends. The franchise is a JOKE not just in Pittsburgh but around the league, Ownership is a JOKE, The plan to turn this team into "Baseballs Hells Angels" is a JOKE. After 20 years of sucking, there is no end in sight. O by the way, the team made $20 million this year and had a top 3 attendance in history. SO Much RAGE

Get your pencils out..: On average, 30-40 fans are kicked out of every NFL game. Starting this year, any fan kicked out of a game will be banned from the stadium until they pay for a 4 hour online course on anger mgt and pass a test. May be some empties in my section this year.

The Kid is back: Understand that it will take a little time. Sidney Crosby hadn't played in a game in nearly 11 months until Monday night, so it's inevitable that he'll need a little time to scrape the rust off his game. In his return, he shook that rust off with a 2 goal/ 4 pt night in 16 min of ice time.

If your favorite NFL team was candy, they would be......: Dont know if this IS FPP worthy, but it is Halloween so why not. Disclaimed: No one was hazed during the posting of this article.

Manziel Would Draft Himself at No. 1

It is rare that I pull for a player to not succeed at the next level but Johnny makes the list. I get that as a rule QB's are cocky and full of themselves, but he thinks he is way better than he is. I get what Russel Wilson has done as a "smallish" QB but he also has an arm and some accuracy. I just don't think Manziel has the skill set.

You Beat me to it NoMich. My link is from the team website.

That is crazy. They said it can be treated and he should return but is out for at least 6 weeks. The local radio guy has been saying all week he figured Kris had Mono since he is the ladies man. Guess he was a little off.

Seattle Wins Super Bowl 0x30

Watching that defense last night made the holes I know exist in my Steelers defense look so so much bigger.

Manning is a statue in he backfield and we have once again seen that if you can hit him a few times he almost gets happy feet. He got rid of several passes to early because he was hearing footsteps .

Why Aren't More Americans Playing in Europe?

I think I remember players were happy when the Thrashers moved out of Atlanta for that reason. They got taxed higher on their game check in GA when they played There.

But we have seen fights to start games before. The NHL allows fights but now is regulating when you can fight. I think they really opened a can of worms on this one.
