Here is the first Sunday morning podcast for this blog. These were well received when I did them elsewhere even if sometimes they seemed to go on forever. I’ll try to limit them to 30-45 minutes as I know everyone is busy with other things in their lives also.
This piece explains why the blog was started and what I hope to accomplish with it. That is simply to draw readers and commenters into the Pitt POV family and get everyone comfortable with it… and then to get some tangible benefits to charities who always need them.
Take a listen:
After today these podcast will be much more Pitt football oriented and probably shorter than today’s 45 minutes.
Here are the three articles about recruiting that I referenced in the podcast . If you haven’t read them before I ask that you take the time to do so as they were very well received by the readers and are timely in that we are in the middle of the recruiting push right now.
To understand the intricacies of the recruiting ‘game’ makes it easier to see the big picture instead of just being disappointed when a kid we want goes elsewhere. I strongly suggest reading the comments also as there was some great discussions generated.
Yesterday’s news had the info about Pitt’s two new capital improvements that just got the needed funding for construction. One will be a domed field for Pitt’s lacrosse (a great sport to watch for sure – all action all the time.) and soccer teams so they can practice and play in any weather.
Here is the actual plan mentioned – “The Plan for Pitt”
Here is a fantastic article by my favorite writer across any genres, although he is a sportswriter for the New Yorker. I read anything I can get my hands on by John McPhee (and Roger Angell if you love sports writing) This explains the game of lacrosse in a way that is just plain fun to read. John McPhee – “Spins Right and Shoots Left”
My sincere thanks for the great response since we rolled this blog out – it has been outstanding and I appreciate everyone of you taking the time to visit, read and to comment.
