If anyone needs any more incentive to start their planning their trip to the Quicksilver Golf Course for the Pitt POV Open Golf Outing in April then take a look at this:

How cool is that?

I had a bunch made up, 14″ x 24″ and they are sturdy as hell and just waiting to go home with you…

A Quick Hitter Today

On this date in 1981 the only church open for Saturday business on the Big Island of Hawaii was the small Imiola Church in Waimea.

Rivals.com’s Chris Peak has another good podcast up and discusses the arrival of OC Shawn Watson and the departure of DL coach Tom Sims. 

He absolutely disagrees with my and others’ beliefs,  that Pitt’s offer to Matt Canada was done knowing that LSU was going to and/or already had topped it.

Well, here the thing – if you know that your offer is going to be topped – which they did, and you know the buyout was going to be paid – which Pitt did, and still offer $1m then great for Pitt.  Kudos for them I suppose.
