I've been a sports fan since I was about 7 years old. The first game I remember vividly watching was Super Bowl XIV between the Steelers and Los Angeles Rams. I've been hooked ever since. My first love is the Steelers, but I'm also a huge Pirates fan and even though it's been painful the last two decades, I'm hoping they can give me some more great memories like they did in the early 90's. I'm not the biggest hockey fan in the world, but I'm learning to appreciate the sport more and more. I also love PITT athletics and college football and basketball, in general.

It’s hard to name a compelling moment or great game from these NFL playoffs.
Two teams will advance to the Super Bowl Sunday, and that’s a great thing
I’m already jealous of the two teams that will advance to the Super Bowl on Sunday. I’m also envious of their fans and all of the fun they’re going to have over the next two weeks.
Why do some fans even watch the NFL if they think it’s “rigged”?
If you think there’s a grand conspiracy to fix professional sporting events—including NFL games involving the Steelers—why do you even watch?
It would be a mistake for the NFL to move conference title games to neutral sites
