  1. Funny man, I don’t expect to see many on this therad. Maybe Jal and Drew with a comment or two.

  2. A couple of times, I saw Co Prinz play at Forbes Field

    Watching Roberto was better ;-)

  3. DK,

    What’s the scouting report on Highmark Stadium?

  4. Breathtaking view of downtown from the stadium!

    Nice pic via Instagram!

    • Double Dittto!!

      Whata we call em?
      Lets Go Dogs??
      Lets Go Hounds ??
      Roll River Roll ?? Hey I sorta like that one!! lol


  5. Malkin possibly out with a sunburn. I’d like to see the injury report on this. Upper body? Lower body? Nah…all over body injury.

    The players are going to bust on him for sure. Someone will probably fill his left skate with sun block.

  6. Looks like wind coming off the riverside portion of the field could be a defining characteristic of the stadium. Passing appears to be affected by it.

    Hounds have had a couple of good scoring chances with headers coming off corners. No score 38 minutes in.

  7. First ball in the river! 40 minutes in.

  8. nil nil at half.

  9. City Islanders miss on a set piece in 61st minute. Previously, #17 for the Hounds missed on a nice strike that sailed over the crossbar.

    Playing in the 66th minute, there is no score.

  10. Goal!!!!!!

    First Highmark Stadium goal at 70 minute.

    1-0 Riverhounds

  11. Pssst… the Pirates are winning 2-1 as well… bottom 7th

  12. City Islanders tie it up in 78th minute.


    Are both professional teams having fireworks after the game?

    Well, gotta put mu kids to bed. I’m out. Hope both teams pull out the “W.”
