Cool Stuff, Random Stuff, Stuff Stuff
Turns out that "HermWarfare" was Pauly's brother Derek. Bastard! Had I known that I might not have pushed with 44. Well...yeah, I would have. Especially since my wife had just gotten home after another 12-hour day (she's helping launch a new life-saving drug, which means she no longer has a life herself) and I figured I oughta either go out or grab some chips so I could sit out a few hands and chat with her and make sure she was fed.
And it's J.P. Costales, not J.S. John-Paul, not Johann Sebastian. Odd, I briefly watched the US-Guatamala soccer game yesterday which was broadcast by the most underrated play-by-play announcer in the history of electronic media, John Paul Dellacamera. J.P. (as he sometimes goes) was the announcer for the Pittsburgh Spirit indoor soccer team way, way back when. Loved going to the Civic Arena to see the Spirit take on the hated Cleveland Force and the loathed Baltimore Blast, our nemesis. Someday soon I'll write an essay titled "Why Stan Terlecki was Better than Mario Lemiuex". If you aren't a Pittsburgher in your thirties that probably makes no sense. Stan "The Man" Terlecki. Let's see how many Google hits I get from that.
If you played in the WPBT event last night, you will want to immediately visit Maudie
and check out the goodies in the WPBT Store
she's set up. Shirts and mugs and lingerie (I kid you not) all with the snazzy WPBT logo. Pretty neato keen, if you ask me.
Lastly, my review
of Chris Moneymaker's book is now posted, so if you'd like to check it out, uh, check it out.
Beautiful spring day in Pittsburgh yesterday, glorious. Snow this weekend. Goddam groundhog.
