Pittsburgh Sports And Mini Ponies

I think blogs, like the mainstream media, have to create their own credibility. I make a point of reading Dejan’s blog because I know I might find useful — accurate — information there. I can’t say the same for a lot of blogs. I don’t have as much time to read blogs as I’d like. I understand there is useful information and good opinions out there.

I played fairly well by my standards, but the best part of the day was playing once again, for the first time in several years, with former co-worker and long time golf partner Bill H. A truly fun day. I get the anger of the City over having “their” team (but let’s face it; teams belong to the owners, not the fans. See Dodgers, Brooklyn), but the whole episode is kind of sad, when you think about it. I am also anxiously awaiting to see who the NFL will choose to be the halftime act at the Super Bowl. Early line favorites are The Beach Boys, Hall and Oates, and Duran Duran. Since the Super Bowl will be in New Orleans, possible dark horse candidates to perform could be Louis Armstrong and Al Hirt.

I followed that up with five years on the Pitt football and basketball beats. I became a columnist in 1983 and have been doing that ever since. A Pirates team that fancies itself a post-season contender, with a chance to shake off an awful weekend in Milwaukee, came up against a team that is not just bad, but historically bad, and they laid down and died. I don’t know how they’re looking in a mirror in that clubhouse tonight.

It’s actually a myth about how to make money on Facebook… Many people ask this question about the money Bob Smizik makes from Twitter. It’s actually a myth about how to make money on Twitter…

There’s one other article I’d like to ask you about before getting into the upcoming sports seasons. I don’t believe I said a negative word about bloggers. I did say I will go with the mainstream media over blogs in most cases. If there was the suggestion that I lump all blogs together that is not the case and I apologize. The way blogs are proliferating, they are only going to reduce the individual power each.

The amount of money that’s dedicated to the training staff for things like this is probably less than half the cost of one minimum salary (approx. $500K) player for the Pirates. So, on that happy note, I ask, What do we Pirates fans have to look forward to? And it serves as a reminder that the Pirates are not the guy sitting in the owner’s box. I covered high school sports for two years, the Penguins for one and the Pirates for six years.

I am a big fan of the beach and I love it when I can escape from it. When you look at the daunting salary cap issues that the Pittsburgh Steelers have facing them in 2012, there seems to be… Any original material on these pages is copyright © BishopAccountability.org 2004.

Disappointing as Tabata’s career in Pittsburgh was, I think if Pirates fans had to choose between young Jose and the current crop, they’d take the former. The former, by the way, is back in the game… sort of, with the West Virginia Power. Tabata was a top prospect when he got the call to the majors at just 21 years young in 2010.

If it’s Pitt basketball or the Penguins, it means leaving the house around 5 p.m. I had a most enjoyable round of golf today at Pheasant Ridge Golf Course in what does critically acclaimed mean Gibsonia. It was the first time that I had played at Pheasant Ridge, and I really liked the course. It is one that i would definitely like to play again.
