Update – A Rough Pitch

My last post chronicled how the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team with EIGHTEEN STRAIGHT losing seasons, were forced through arbitration to give pitcher Ross Ohlendorf a nearly 400 percent raise even though he was often hurt and only compiled a 1 win versus 11 loss season.  In Pittsburgh the Steelers’ season is over so football, the city’s favorite sport, until the NFL draft.  The Penguins are limping so badly with injuries that their season is on the brink of collapse.  They still enjoy strong fan support and are exciting to watch in anticipation of Sidney Crosby’s return (hopefully).  Other than college basketball, hoops is not a big sport in the town.

hempSome two years after the lover of Massachusetts Representative and Chairman of the powerful Financial Services Committee, Barney Frank, was arrested for growing pot in his yard, it has come to light that Rep. Frank (D-MA) was actually present during the drug bust.  Great job main stream media for finally letting people know that Frank was present during his lover’s DRUG BUST over two years ago.  I guess that this is not the same as a Representative sending suggestive texts to a page (who turned out NOT to be underage) that stayed on the front pages for weeks, but he was a Republican after all.
