Hope all of you Steelers’ Fans had a great holiday weekend. Hot Italian Wife and I celebrated our 18th anniversary on Independence Day. People often ask why did you get married on July 4th? Our thinking was that people were going to be partying anyway so we’ll just get married before the fireworks.
Here was my article for our partners at Pittsburgh Sports Initiative. What the Steelers Can Take From the Pens’ Run to the Cup.
You probably saw where Pirates’ third baseman Jung Ho Kang is under investigation in Chicago for an alleged sexual assault. As always, people have felt it necessary to bring up Ben Roethlisberger. The complete lack of knowledge with regards to those situations doesn’t surprise me anymore. If you’re going to comment on it then know the facts.
I waited several days before posting my thoughts on Le’Veon Bell’s new rap song “Focus.” In it, he says he deserves $15 million a season. Well, here’s my take.
Tweet of the Day… DWill was definitely in the holiday spirit.

I find that I tweet politics way too often from my @SteelDad account and I want to be clear about something. I’m not a Republican or Democrat and I’m not a Conservative or Liberal. I’m a realist. I look at every issue on its own. Some people will call that ‘non-committal’ or even ‘weak.’ I call it common sense. Both parties are guilty of some horrible, horrible things on behalf of We the People and that pisses me off to no end. So when you see me rip Hillary or Trump it doesn’t make me a fan of one or the other. OK, enough of that.
I’m becoming more and more convinced that Mike Tomlin needs to tweet at players other than DeAngelo Williams to shut up. I’ll let you figure what players I’m talking about.
My latest SCB Summer Series player was Javon Hargrave. Check out why I think he’s so important to the success of the Steelers in 2016.
We are just weeks away from camp opening. So glad to get the offseason in the background and the season underway.
Have a great Wednesday Steeler Nation!
