Heading into the 4th of July weekend and let’s let’s clear out some links.
First here is Bob Lichtenfell’s first piece for PSN. More of a stream of consciousness than anything else but the man has a fine reputation and is reputed to be well connected. Some good nuggets in here. Would love to hear him on a podcast.
Since we are already on PSN and we’ve been talking about the Director’s cup here is their take on it. Notice that under Heather Lyke Pitt has fallen to an all time low. I’m hoping this is one step back to take two steps forward… Also notice that just about the time we start to make progress the Athletic Director leaves. Maybe the anti-Lykers (dis-Lykers?) have a point? They do until next year anyway…
Here is Chris Peak’s latest Pantherlair podcast. He interviews Phil Steele about Pitt’s chances in 2019. I listened long enough to learn that the beer of the week is Ithaca Brewing’s “Platonic Love” Double IPA. Speaking of Platonic Love is it just me or does the intro music soind like he pulled it from a late night movie? Just something I’ve always wondered. Please keep those comments PG folks…
Pitt is running a 2 for 1 sale for the Central Florida game. And probably more compelling they donate a ticket to a deserving active duty or military veteran. What is unclear is if you get two tickets and they give a ticket to a veteran or if you just get one. I think it’s the former – otherwise it would just say “BOGO” instead of “BOGOGO”. Either way it’s a great cause and a great reason to go to a Pitt game on what should he a beautiful fall day in Pittsburgh. The other side of the coin is that ticket sales must be really slow for this one.
And finally, the coup de gras, the feather in the cap, the nail in the coffin. Our blogger emeritus and founder forwarded me this link a couple of days ago.
I’ve got only two things to say:
- We’ve got momentum , but Damn we’ve got a long way to go.
(From the Cathedral Rooftop at the top of my lungs). HEATHER and CHANCELLOR GALLAGHER DESPITE OUR LACKLUSTER SHOWING IN THE DIRECTORS CUP MOMENTUM AROUND PITT ATHLETICS IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH. DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY. PLEASE IMPLEMENT A “PITTTAY” program ASAP.
(Clemson’s booster group is called IPTAY)
