:10 Speaking of the Steelers …No I wasn’t, just checking to see if you’re paying attention. Anyway, I was just thinking. If the Steelers teams of the ’70s had the greatest defensive line of all time why is there only one member of that line in the Hall of Fame? That being the Great “Mean” Joe Greene. Most certainly L.C. “Hollywood Bags” Greenwood should be in and you can certainly make an argument for Dwight “Mad Dog” White and for a man they will all tell you that without Ernie “Fats” Holmes (who always commanded the attention of two or three men) none of them would have made it! Only one left, that’s Greenwood. You know what to do. Let’s get busy and push all the buttons we have to get him in. Do it now!
:09 Pitt is it yet again, at least for the moment. With a decisive victory over Virginia Tech (31-19) the Panthers showed some life after their 0-2 start. With the combination of Ray Graham and freshman phenom Rushel Shell in the backfield combining for nearly 300 yards, things are looking a lot better.
:08 Listen and remember you heard it here first. Your Pittsburgh Pirates are not out of it yet. Still two (2) games over 500 and just two (2 1/2) games out of the last playoff spot. Anything can still happen. Keep the faith will ya!!
:07 Remember what I told you “haters” last week about the importance of Mike Wallace? Well…BAM!!! He just caught a 60-yard touchdown pass. Now will you please shut-up and just take what I give you to the bank!
:06 You can dress it up anyway you want but anytime you take your starting quarterback out for a series of plays or more and he’s not hurt you’re sending him a message and that message ain’t good. And I am a Tim Tebow man….mmmaaannn! Sanchez if I were you I would get out of New York as soon as I could!
:05 Nobody else is gonna say it so I’ll say it … but I know you’re all thinking it. I hope Terry Smith and the Gateway Gators win the WPIAL title and the state title and then let’s see if “they” can come up with another way to let him go. I am just sayin! And this comes from a born and bred Penn Hills cat!
:04 Hats off to the Penn Hills High School administration, athletic department and A.D./Coach John Petermen for a job well done in bringing back the Indian Alumni football players to be recognized on the field before their game against Baldwin last week. Hey, first of all they fed us … that will always get us to come back (by the way Mr. Ionadi the food was off the chart). Secondly, those of us that had the great pleasure of playing for the Legendary Andy Urbanic were re-united with him as he was presented with a special achievement homecoming honor. And last but not least, we all were proud to be in the company of Pro Bowler “Big” Bill Fralic and NFL star Tom Flynn, two of Penn Hills all time greats.
:03 Here’s the “Final Note” from me for the great Leroy “K.” Wofford… the Blues Man! Not a nicer more talented artist to be found anywhere. Self-taught drummer and keyboard player, songwriter, stage performer extraordinaire and could sing the hell out of the blues. The great George Benson, who Leroy wrote a song for, is quoted as saying “Leroy Wofford is the greatest pure entertainer to ever come out of Pittsburgh.” We’ll miss ya blues man, and remember… “Do nothin’ till you hear from me!” Donations to help with burial expenses for LeRoy K. Wofford can be made directly to: Spriggs-Watson Funeral Home, Inc., 720 N. Lang Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa. 15208. The funeral director is Donald Jones, 412-243-8080.
:02 Hey everybody “Ty Wilson” is back! Now look don’t ask me nothin’ else, that’s all I can tell ya. If I told ya more I’d have to kill you!
