Being born, raised, & growing up in the outskirts of Pittsburgh in the 70's, was the Best! I was 8 when the Pirates won the 71 World Series. I was 9 when Franco made The Immaculate Reception, & 11 when The STEELERS won Super Bowl IX.
By the time I was 16, Pittsburgh became The City of CHAMPIONS! It Still Is... My Dad worked @ B&W, his Dad worked @ J&L. Neither, wanted me to do the same! So, Every oppurtunity, I was @ the ballpark & ballfield. Admittedly, I was a better Baseball player (All 3 Outfield positions, & 1st Baseman) than I was a Wide Receiver & Cornerback. But, I had Great Hands & alot of Heart, & HERO'S!!! Other than my Dad, I had Phenomenal & Iconic Heros! Among them Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Al Oliver, Bill Mazeroski, from the Pirates. Terry Bradshaw, Rocky Blier, Franco Harris, Mike Webster, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Mean Joe Greene, LC Greenwood, Dwight White, Ernie Holmes, Jack Lambert, Jack Hamm, Mel Blount, Mike Wagoner, & of Course Chuck Noll! Is it any wonder I ate, drank, & slept, STEELERS & Pirates?
Living in Joe Namath's & Donnie Iris ((Ah Leah) Rockstar) Hometown of Beaver Falls I also got to be a Penn State & of course Pitt fan! I Got to watch Dan Manarino & Tony Dorsett Win The Sugar Bowl & National Championship! I also watched Tony Dorsett play High School Football @ Hopewell High School, When He was Tony Dorsett Pronounced Dor-sit. Only Dallas would/could make him change that to Dor-Set (lol) HATE Them Cowboys! Always Have! How SWEET It Will Be To Find 7th Heaven in Dallas!!!!!!!
MORE COMING SOON!
