What a great time to live in Pittsburgh! It has been an awesome year to cheer for the Steelers and Penguins along with Pitt BB having another solid year!
I try to explain to my daughters (15 and 13) that this is a privlege to have two home town teams be Champions and be so young in key areas. There have been teams that have not sniffed a championship in my lifetime let alone theirs. We don't have to look very far to understand the other side with the Pirates... They are on the 19th rebuilding plan. I can only hope they are successful this time because some real talent has left the organization in the last two years. The Penguins had to hit bottom to rebuild, and they got it right because of strong leadership. The Steelers have strong leadership too. We are so fortunate to have two teams in a small market that win their league championship! Great drafting, smart decisions, strong leadership, and some luck have equaled an awesome year with potentially more to come. Shero, Colbert, Tomlin, and now Bylsma! Lemeiux and the Rooneys have done it the right way and that makes it all the better. You don't buy championships you earn them.
Respect the Rings!
