Off Season Open Thread: Hurry Up Latrobe.

One week of no football down: Too damn many to go. So while we twiddle our thumbs waiting for the draft and then training camp, what's on your agenda? For me it's hockey, although Pitchers and Catchers reported to Spring training which means Pirates baseball...and Tums. The Pirates give me heartburn so I watch the Pens...who give me a headache sometimes. I know I'm not the only one that is totally engrossed in sports: Just once though, I'd like for all of my teams to play like the talented teams that they are. Steelers, Pens and for the love of God... The Pirates. For some of you old timers; I'm sure you remember the Green Weenie (which is a Pirates tradition) and raising the Jolly Roger which is fantastic, but then I found myself having to learn to do the Zoltan thing. It takes practice: Nothing more ridiculous than doing a backwards Zoltan. So, while I wait for baseball, I watch the Pens. Center Ice is a great thing, especially since there was only 1/2 of a season, the price was reduced to $49.99. I swear I watch the Pens sometimes just to make myself crazy. With talent like MVP-Malkin, Sid Crosby, Kunitz, Neal, Fluery, Orpik etc, you'd think there isn't a game that could be lost. Nope; not in Pittsburgh sports fandom. Sometimes I think my chosen teams are in cahoots with antacid manufacturers. So there you have it, Steeler faithful. Filling time between the end of the season and training camp can feel like forever and a day. What's your plan to pass the time?
