Morning, Lunatics …
>> The ridiculous Monday column fulfills a challenge made a year ago as to whether or not I could score on a Riverhounds goalkeeper on a penalty kick.
No, really, that’s the topic.
Hey, they can’t all be super-serious magnum opuses like the Sunday column on Jason Grilli.
Here’s the video of the actual session, middle three kicks only …
And here’s my conversation afterward with keeper (and good sport) Ryan Hulings …
I can’t sufficiently express my appreciation to CEO Jason Kutney, coach Justin Evans and others with the Riverhounds for their cooperation on this. And I’ll repeat here what’s in the column: They’re well worth watching and, actually, becoming more entertaining offensively as the season progresses.
And even if you’re not remotely into soccer, there’s always this view I snapped later from the press box …
>> The Pirates drop two of three to the lowly Cubs, by Karen Price in Chicago.
>> The Steelers seek a sequel from L.T., by Ralph Paulk.
>> Ray Shero plays the Penguins’ hero, by Rob Rossi.
>> If you missed it last night on WPXI-TV, here’s The Final Word.
>> I’ll visit with TribLIVE Radio today at noon.
>> A final thing today: This blog’s never been much of a billboard for Trib promotions, but some of you have asked in the past how you could see/buy our actual print product from out of town.
The answer is a thing called eTrib. It’s the online version of the newspaper, and there’s an absurd sale on it for four weeks at a total of 99 cents.
And no, I don’t get commission.
