My Fantasy Football Team

I think these are the men that will win it all: Ben Roethlisberger Terell Owens Santonio Holmes Frank Gore Ricky Williams Vernon Davis Laveranues Coles Ted Ginn Jr. Rashard Mendenhall Jeff Reed Pittsburgh James Harrison Lamar Woodley Troy Polamalu The great part was I didn’t even have to take reach…

The Face of Greed

This makes me sick. Reactions from around the Sports Burghosphere: Where Have You Gone Andy Van Slyke? Bucs Dugout Raul I might do a post with reaction after the arbitrator rules, but for now I feel it’s adequate to say Scott Boras has done everything in his power to ruin…

Ministry

I don’t talk about my faith often on this blog and for the most part try to stay away from the topic of church and churches. I believe faith is a very personal thing, but today I want to briefly discuss Christ Community Church of the South Hills‘ decision to…

Sour Kraut

Tasty tidbits from the last week: I’m an ardent Obama supporter and THIS seems totally fair to me. Just remember that I said so when I post a picture of McCain lighting a bomb before Bush throws it. Pittsburgh Ventures has a new home and (hopefully) new life. An interesting…

The Worst Players Ever

The guys over at ESPN’s Page 2 made a list of the “Unfranchise Players,” guys that the organization would be better without. They made the evaluation based on a particular season.

Sour Kraut

The Bad: I’ve been away for a couple days because the personal life has been interesting.The Good: Lots of Juicy Sour Kraut has formed in my absence from the Burghosphere. If the story here about Joe Biden being selected as Obama’s veep is true I’ll be happy. Not as happy…

Carbolic Smoke Ball

If you don’t read CSB Daily here’s why you should. Today’s top story: Georgia Woman Vows to Rebuild Plantation Damaged by Russian Invasion That’s good stuff fellas, keep it up.

Leaving Home?

First, let me say that I have been away from the burgh for the last 11 days, and it is SOOOO good to be home. Just as I pulled in through the Liberty Tubes and turned down McCardle, fireworks erupted from the Allegheny and exploded just above the skyline. I’m…

Spanish and Chinese

I don’t know if anyone noticed but the Spanish Olympic team posed in a picture with their hands squinting their eyes in such a way that they appeared more chinese. For those who need a visual demonstration there is a picture in the link. Needless to say this created quite…
