I've been a sports fan since I was about 7 years old. The first game I remember vividly watching was Super Bowl XIV between the Steelers and Los Angeles Rams. I've been hooked ever since.

My first love is the Steelers, but I'm also a huge Pirates fan and even though it's been painful the last two decades, I'm hoping they can give me some more great memories like they did in the early 90's.

I'm not the biggest hockey fan in the world, but I'm learning to appreciate the sport more and more.

I also love PITT athletics and college football and basketball, in general.

A Fan Of...

Madden hates the Steelers. That's fine by me, I could care less if he likes the Steelers or not.

Yeah, it's certainly not Goodell's fault about the lack of two a days. Actually, well before the last CBA, training camps were becoming less and less physical.

I didn't know that about Merril. That's some good stuff. Hard to fathom players were still working summer jobs as recently as the late 80s.

I can't believe they used to have those games. That would be quite the event today. Probably over hyped and over-produced if I know today.

Well, if Blount isn't to be charged, then I guess he's the featured back once Bell is officially suspended.

That's more a safety thing. And Goodell wasn't around when Mel Blount played.

Bottom line, when you have the bases loaded and nobody out, more than two runs should be expected--at least sometimes.
