Ok Johnny I'll break out the OT for this Friday. Let's get random yall. Around Pittsburgh, around the country and around the world. I've got the bullets loaded and I'm about to spray. You know how I do, the fun gun is loaded and I'm about to lay down the 411. So excuse me while I whip this out.
1. The Pirates start off the second half of the season. Looking for a change in fortune the Pirates turn to the one who started the first half. Zach is back. After a stint on the DL and some work in the minors let's hope he comes back and gets it done. Can we beat the pesky Astros please?
2. Pitt football and basketball will be on the radio. KDKA-FM Sports radio 93.7 for men's basketball and football & 1320 WJAS-AM for women's basketball. Courtesy of Triblive.com
3. The old porn theater on the North Side is going to be the backdrop in an upcoming movie ("One For the Money"). The old relic was been renewed for the shooting. Locals were caught by surprised because they lobbied hard for it to be shut down. Apparently they thought it was reopened. Yikes. Courtesy of Triblive.com
4. Minor Earthquake in D.C. at about 5 a.m. this morning. Did any of you Maryland W.V. folks feel it? It was supposedly felt in MD, VA, WV and PA. Johnny?
5. I have roots in Louisville, KY, so I will represent the homeland by telling you that the extortion trial against Karen Sypher as accomplished a milestone. The jury has been selected; the plaintiff? Rick Pitino.
6. All you Hampton Roads people. I still have a fondness in my heart for that area. I still love the Norfolk Tides. Even better news. The UFL is coming to Norfolk! They will most likely be called Virginia [no mascot yet]. What is your suggestion for a team name. I like one of these: Cotton Mouths, Vipers (semipro team already has this one), Spiders, Black Widows or Virginia Arns.
7. Post your El Chupacabra stories. One of my favorite stories was a town haunted by a garden gnome. Video here: http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=yH-gs0FQwEo&feature=related
Your turn. Ok What were you expecting a Redskins cheerleader? Don't tempt me.
9. This bullet is for you. Not for you like to kill you, but it's for your addition. It's for you to get your initiation into the Steel City clique. We can't call it gang because the po po will come snooping around. Do whatcha like.
