Work sucks...there's no too ways about it. That's why we have the weekend, you know, to lay around and do squat. However, being a Pittsburgh sports fan a local blogger isn't really conducive to the "lay-around-and-do-nothing-on-the-weekends" lifestyle. Let's delve.
This weekend is an awesome one to be a Pittsburgh sports fan. The Steelers are trying to win 2 games in a row (on national t.v.), and the Penguins season is starting up on Saturday. And the Pirates are done til Spring. This weekend couldn't get any better!
So, I should be sitting in front on my t.v. all day Saturday for the Pens and Sunday for the Steelers, right? Wrong.
I'll be outta work at 5 today, back at my apartment in Queens a little before 6. I gotta dominate a wine tasting at 6:30...that as nothing to do with sports, but its the beginning of a jam-packed weekend.
Then, I have to leave the city and head to Hoboken (pretty much as far away from Queens as I can get, East to West, and still be in the metropolitan area) to make a damn Steelers pregame show for you fools. Those bitches take a lot more time than you think, what with taping, watching the raw footage, editing, uploading, etc. I think the first bit of free time I'll get is right before the start of the Sunday night game in Jacksonville. You see what I do for you guys? Such is the life of a Pittsburgh sports blogger.
Yet there's nothing else I'd rather be doing. I'm ready to kick off a successful Penguins season, and hope the Steelers can build off the Ravens win. Now you know why I refrain from posting on the weekends, save for the pregame show during the season.
So pity me, fellow fans. The sports I love so much are killing any free time I thought I had, and I'll probably be a tired mess to start another long workweek. But damn, there's no better way to spend a weekend than with the Steelers and Penguins.
