It's amazing how Summer doesn't seem to be an endless cesspool of misery when the Pirates give you something to actually root for

It is crazy. I was legitimately upset that I couldn't watch baseball on the off day

I've missed two games since getting my internet hooked up here about a month ago and have felt bored out of my mind on off-days. That's just unheard of for me. Even my peak Pirates interest tends to be about half of the games in April-June.

I actually ordered the month-to-month MLB.tv package this year because I was so used to just not using the service from August on...I'm quite happy to regret that decision.

Are the Steelers interested in Burress? On NFL.com under the "Latest Buzz" section in Free Agency, it says the Steelers are interested in Burress.

Quote:
Analysis: While the Steelers could use a red-zone threat Burress is reportedly looking for too much money, according to the Post-Gazette. The veteran wideout could put pressure on Mike Wallace, but nothing will get done at the price he's asking.

Kevin Colbert said that if we are still looking for wide receiver help by the end of the preseason that we will look to players that get waived by teams and not anyone that is a free agent currently.

meh. i find the whole no-name-on-the-jersey-because-no-individual-is-greater-than-the-team concept to be overly sanctimonious. but maybe that's just my disdain for Notre Dame seeping in.

Amen. Don't forget to lump the Yankees in with those a-holes.

As well as a blue ribbon.

Quote:
Players indicated the names on their jerseys also mean they will hold each other accountable to uphold the traditions of Penn State football, both on and off the field.

"We want our fans to know and recognize these young men," O'Brien said. "They have stuck together during tough times, and I commend them for the leadership they have shown. Moving forward, I'm deeply committed to honoring Penn State's traditions, while building a bright future for our football program."

And at the same time, members of the board of trustees are filing suit against the NCAA because of the sanctions and so are a number of former players. Even worse, in the players' letter, they use "Meaning no disrespect to the victims of abuse" in their plea to defend their football program from any type of "unfair" penalties.

Jesus Christ, never change PSU.

I can only imagine Bill O' Brien wishes he was still with the Patriots.

The result of the first pre-season game is beyond meaningless. I just want to see the offensive line get some good push in their one or two series and see how the secondary works out.

Sorry fellows, but I actually became a Pats fan in 1997, the day the Pats went in to Pittsburgh and beat the **** out of them in the AFC finals. Been a Pats fan ever since
