Positive Press for Pittsburgh

I don’t subscribe to Sports Illustrated. I have bought copies here and there during my life, but I can’t see myself subscribing to a publication that has that swimsuit issue every year. If women really want to be photographed in bathing suits that’s fine, I just don’t really want to pick up that issue. I have stuck to the online version, which is very nice. It’s hosted at CNN’s site.

I really like Peter King’s “Monday Morning Quarterback”article. It reminds me for the world of my blog entries, with his numbered lists and whatnot. And, I think he knows what he’s talking about. At least, as far as I can tell. I follow football but I’m not a numbers junkie or anything.

This weeks’ MMQB is all about the Steelers, and… wow. He says some great things about the team. I’m all a-glow. This is so rare for me that one of my teams is doing THIS well and being recognized for it. I hardly know what to do.

Granted, I’ve lived through the D-backs’ World Series victory in 2001. And also a University of Arizona basketball NCAA tournament victory. Still, it feels so weird. I’m used to cheering for the losers because I don’t pick which teams to follow based on their records. I mean, honestly, if I did, would I follow the Cardinals? It’s just a nice feeling to have. It’s been a tough month or two, and it’s really refreshing to have something to cheer about. Thanks, Steelers.

    Came across your blog today. Good stuff. Agree with you on Monday Morning QB. Great writing.

    Noticed you were also a college basketball fan. Hoping you could (create a blogroll and) add a link to my College Basketball Blog, http://collegeball.blogspot.com. I’d very much appreciate a link on your site.

    And would gladly return the favor, adding a link from my site to yours.
