What can I say...most people had friends when they were little. I watched a LOT of sports. I'm not always right, but I sure have my opinions and am always willing to hear the other side. That back and forth is what makes sports great!

I live in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and hold a 20 game Season Ticket plan for the Pirates and a Half Season plan for the Penguins. In my opinion, there is nothing greater than the experience of live, professional sports.

Some of the best moments of my life have come watching the Penguins, Pirates, and Steelers at their two stadiums/arenas over the years (Three Rivers Stadium, Civic Arena, PNC Park, Heinz Field, and Consol Energy Center). I've also been to Pitt football at Heinz Field and old Pitt Stadium and Pitt Basketball at the Petersen Events Center.

In addition to that, I have been fortunate enough to watch sports in the following cities/places:

NBA: Cleveland

NHL: Columbus, Toronto, Nashville, Winter Classic (Heinz Field)

MLB: Boston, New York (Shea, Citi, Old and New Yankee), Washtington DC (RFK and Nats Park), Baltimore, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Minnesota, Milwaukee, and Chicago (US Cellular and Wrigley)

World Baseball Classic: Toronto

AA Ball: Altoona

AHL: Pittsburgh, New Haven

NASCAR: Michigan International Speedway

Golf: US Open at Oakmont Country Club, 84 Lumber Classic at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

    I'm glad at least someone appreciates my articles about the AHL Penguins. I know it'll never get me a ton of reads, but I live in their home city and see close to half the games each season...that's about 30 home games and a few road games. Thanks for appreciating it, and not leaving snide remarks about how much people don't care. I think that guy cares at least a little and just won't admit it...after all, he read it and left a comment!

    Hi Ern,

    I'm best friends with Jason Grilli. He was picked up by the Pirates last night. Might be able to break the story....Thanks Todd
