Brother Clayton (Brother of Burgher Jon) Graduates PSU!!!

I’m in State College for my brother’s graduation, so you’re not going to see a long post out of me… however I will give you a link. If any of you missed Char’s post about Hillary, it is HILARIOUS. This first part is a “quote” from Hillary: “Okay ….. You…

Burgher Jon is 25!

It’s my birthday, so I’m not posting today… Unless somebody really pisses me off before the celebration commences.

WWGRD?

The Pensblog guys have really done some exceptional work this season, as I have documented frequently. They have taken the 41 year old hockey player and made him an Internet folk hero. Gary Roberts became “viral.” All of a sudden he’s a leading candidate for the pirate’s all-star game spot…

Sour Kraut

Emphasis on the sour this morning. I had a long eloquent post explaining how I feel about gambling in Pittsburgh and the state… but Blogger ate it. So you get some short and sour kraut because I no longer have time for eloquense. Cute new baby tiger at the zoo….

Sour Kraut

I don’t really have time for two posts, but there were a few good stories out there I wanted to pass along. I don’t know how Chris Briem found this story about the company that was to build the Pittsburgh MagLev dissolving, but it’s interesting. I’ve always doubted that it…

So an update on this morning’s tidbit on City Council, the discussion was tabled because the 4 members of council whose legal bill is in question, left the room. This had the effect of not leaving a majority for or against the measure to refund the money. Depending on wether…

Kraut Sour

There’s been a steady diet of cabbage on this blog, that’s only because there’s too much going on to make one long blog post about anything. Maybe tomorrow… Rendell is talking about Pens vs. Flyers at PSU again. I say, bring it. I watched games 1 and 2 in State…

Blame PittGirl

The Pirates had won 6 straight without PittGirl noticing. She kept calling them the Buccos of Suckitude and they kept winning. In fact earlier this afternoon they won the first game in a double header. Shortly after that this note from PittGirl pops up. Well apparently either PittGirl or one…

Sour Kraut

Nothing like some Pittsburgh food at a time with so much Pittsburgh pride. Of course, the first must-reed bit of cabbage is the Pensblog recap of the 4-2 victory yesterday. I was walking around State College bars, but thoroughly enjoyed the parts of the game that I caught. The most…
