time for the steelers to hit the practice fields in the hot summer sun. time for the sounds of pads hitting pads, coaches shouting instructions, and whistles piercing the campus air at st. vincent's. it's time for the steelers to go back to camp and try to fix what ended up as an 8-8 mess last year.
and it is time for me to enter my yearly promised land of sports-fandom. i get 3+ months of baseball and football together, and it is the best quarter of a year that a baseball/football guy could ask for.
so please excuse me if i revel in this for a bit, with a gigantic smile on my face.
