PSU 38 – Illonois 33

Providence lost to 7th seed Louisville last night in college hoops. The loss comes in spite of scoring 76 points (Louisville scored 94). As a consolation for Providence, they could have beaten both Penn State AND Illonois whose game finished 38-33. The ridiculously low scoring game featured Penn State scoring…

Market Square

I’m a huge fan of the plan for Market Square (WTAE has the best story). I’m a big fan of walking over to PNC Park from the southside and stopping off on the way back at Primanti’s in market square. I’ve frequently joked with my friends in other cities about…

Here's a Thought

Dowd picked the right horse in the Presidential Race.  He was an early and faithful backer of Barack Obama.  Right now, that’s hurting him.  If Obama had lost to McCain, maybe he would have dropped by and did a fund raiser for Dowd the way Clinton (Bill) did for Ravenstahl….

You Know It, I Know It, How'd We Forget it?

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is going to be Mayor Luke Ravenstahl in 2010. We may not like his little snafus*, but the bottom line is this: he hasn’t screwed up enough to lose the primary. Ravenstahl has lost some of his political capital, sure but he still has more then enough…
