  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 19

    Have you ever felt the joy that comes from slamming your fingers in a car door?   Have you ever been kicked in the testicles? If you kept up with the Pirates and Penguins simultaneously last night I think that counts for both.  At the same time.  Even if you’re a female and/or tranny and…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 14

    Whatever that madness was last night it will continue today at 5:30. There are really no words to describe the bizarre nature of just about everything that happened. The game will be carried by Root Sports. Therefore, we could see some weak bullpens tonight. Pirates have Bryan Morris listed but I assume that’s because he…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 12

    Mercifully this is the last game of the series. The Pirates ran into a buzzsaw. That said the Brewers probably would have swept this series anyway. I’m convinced Bob Ueker could stumble on down from the booth and knock in a few runs against the Pirates. A few positives came out of last night’s mess.…

  • Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Game 6

The series hinges on a matchup EVERYONE has been dreaming about. Edinson Volquez vs. Adam Wainwright. Now,  you can lie…

  • Down the Stretch: NHL Eastern Conference Power Rankings

Some teams got better at the deadline, some got worse. That alone doesn’t decide who will be making an impact heading into April. But it sure will help…

  • Down the Stretch: NHL Western Conference Power Rankings

    The NHL trade deadline has now come and gone, so what you see is what you get for each NHL roster. Every team will have to ride or die with the rosters they have. Some teams, and their fans, are happier than others as we head down the stretch, based on those rosters. This (and…

  • The Friday Ramblings, Version 1.0

    There are many things to talk about in the Pittsburgh (and world) sports scene, so here is the first edition of the Ramblings, my weekly way of giving my thoughts on everything that’s worth talking about. Away we go: -The Penguins delivered last night in Los Angeles, a strong statement from the team, and especially…

  • Starting Out with a Bang

    Some of you may already know me. My name is Griggsy (@Griggsy96 on Twitter, and yes, I welcome all feedback). I am a 30 year old, born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. I have a boring job, a life that’s been in upheaval of late, and an IQ of 158 that rarely gets…
