We’re not even done with the first quarter but a lot has happened in 2013.
Thank you to so many of you who supported UPMC’s research into oral cancer and helped me raise visibility for such an evil disease. A special thanks to those who donated money to support the research, thanks to you hopefully others won’t have to face losing a loved one the way my family did. No words can really explain the heartbreak we felt and still feel. The blessing is knowing he’s no longer suffering.
But bringing this back to football, we also had to deal with the Ravens winning the Super Bowl this year. No fun for Steelers fans, but the beauty in this, if we must find one, is that no one can discount the strength of the AFC North. I know it’s a stretch for many, but there has to be a silver lining somewhere, right?
For those of you who watched the combine, I know you were trying to determine who might be the Steelers first round pick. Here’s where I was going to give Behind the Steel Curtain some love and share their draft picks, because I haven’t had much time, due to all the things I named above, along with my OWN child being in the middle of recruiting season (He’s a high school football player, in case you didn’t know). But when I went to their site just now, I see they “mocked” me in their mock draft post. That’s how it goes I guess.
But while talking about the Draft, I wanted you to know I will be reporting live from the NFL Draft in New York again this year. Maybe my pick in the mock draft wasn’t great, good thing I am not a GM, but I will be in New York sharing who the Steelers DO choose as the #1 pick.
I plan to interview fans from the line outside Radio City each day, so if you plan to be there, please let me know. I want to make sure I get to each of you.
Here’s to a great 2013 season for our Steelers!
