I Bleed Black & Gold

I grew up in a small town called McMurray, a southern suburb of Pittsburgh. Ever since I was old enough to understand the meaning of sports in this city, I have been a passionate fan of any team that calls Pittsburgh home.

My appreciation for the superb standards set by the Steelers and Penguins is just, along with anyone who considers themselves a Black and Gold fanatic. You can also call me a devoted Pirates fan who has never known what it's like to have a winning baseball team. As I was very young during the playoff runs of the early 90s, a successful season now is defined by 70 wins.

A passionate little leaguer throughout the youth days, I also played four years of tennis in high school.
