Other than that, I choose to keep a low profile. I am very proud of the five years I spent as a sportswriter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and adore the rock group AC/DC.

    Much has been written about the Steelers, the 1970s, and their use of steroids. The current public perception is the Steelers began and glamorized the use of roids in the 70s. Read my article to find out who one man, with 4 NFL teams, spread the use of steroids throughout the NFL, beginning in 1963, and see just how pervasive roid usage was by the time the Steelers began their decade of dominance.

    Hey Marky,

    I just posted a new article on a long shot guy finally getting his shot with the Steelers. I was hoping to get you to take a look at it. Let me know what you think.

    Yes, Graham. I have been in every press box (or press row) in Pittsburgh and many beyond. But while it is nice, remember, good journalism or coverage should come from wherever you are. The press box doesn't make you- the story does- no matter what the subject.

    But thanks for the kind note!

    Wow Pittsburgh Post-Gazette! What was it like having press passes and being a respected journalist?

    Hey,
    In the down time before training camp I thought this could be a refreshing article for NFL fans.
