bi The Pirates unveiled a statue of Bill Mazeroski at PNC.  Word has it, Maz was pretty teary-eyed at the event.  The statue depicts him hitting his famous homerun against the Yankees in the 1960 World Series.  I’m not a Pirate fan but I’d rather have it showing his fielding prowess.  Your thoughts?

On a personal note, tomorrow is my big day at the Kiwanis Sports Trivia Championship.  My friend Shawn and I are team are teaming up to hopefully going to show our sports trivia prowess (or embarrass ourselves trying).  Wish us luck!
