Sorry for the dearth in posting, its one of those times where the crew at DAI is busy at the same time. On a positive note, the next Pittsburgh sports based flash game is starting to come together.
Bob Smizik was in rare form on Sunday, delivering one of his trademark downer pieces, in this case about the 2008 Pirates. Am I the only one who thinks the low expectations are a good thing? It's like when I met my black sheep uncle for the first time when I was 8 or 9 years old. I was angry I had to put down my power ranger Zoids and expectations were low, but then he gave me 50 bucks just for the hell of it. I thought that was great until I realized a few years later that it averaged out to only around $2.77 for each Christmas and birthday he missed. Jerk.
Big Snack and Diego open up Mondesi's new line up with a top 10 list of things to do with your free time now that the Steelers are out of the playoffs. Though, reason number 7 assumes people who spend time on the blogosphere actually talk to women face to face.
I know Pat will like this one: Philip Rivers is Chachi.
Mark Madden believes Conklin should sit upon MAF's return. I think you ride Conklin until he shows any sign of coming down from whatever planet he is on, but not a minute sooner. But, as Madden points out, Therrien has never cared much for potential and likes to send messages to players depending on how they're playing, which means Conklin has probably earned a bit of respect.
Thats all I've got. Should be getting back into the swing of things shortly.
