Cowboys? The First America’s Team? I Don’t Think So!

August 28, 2008
So, I was on the Steelers Forum the other day and in passing read that the Steelers were the first pick in the “America’s Team” draft. I was shocked and excited all at the same time. Apparently Dan Rooney stated that we were not “America’s Team”, we were “Pittsburgh’s Team”. He didn’t want to hear any of that. He didn’t want to be America’s team, he wanted to be just Pittsburgh’s team. I feel so much better about being Pittsburgh’s team. I think it is more loyal to the hard workers in this city. I know that we are now more of a high tech town, but it is still intimidating to others teams knowing that we are a get down and dirty, get the job done kinda town. I love hearing this and I think everyone should know that we were first pick. I really love that we turned it down because we didn’t want it. It makes it funnier and funnier that the Cowboys claim to fame is that they are America’s team. They never mention that they were second place, a.k.a. first loser! SO, what I am saying is, next time you see a Cowboys fan, let them know they were sloppy seconds!

Band of the Week!…Volume 3! -Evans Blue

August 27, 2008

So, I decided to start a bi-monthly blog all about what I will call my favorite band of the week. This weeks band is called Evans Blue. You can click on the band name for a full bio, but as for this blog, I will give you the quick down and dirty. There are five members to this canadian band. They were in three different bands originally and were put together by a local musicians message board. As stated from Their MySpace page, “A dilemma arose when you started to regress back to who you never wanted to be. The pursuit begins when this PORTRAYAL of life ends, and it will start on your count or it will never start at all. There is an evolution, and it feels similar but it runs through different parts of your body. It is a sound that is more distinct, and it is collected and displayed by 5 minds attacking one medium. It is evans|blue.” I love the melodies that blend with the music and guitars, it is very smooth. Their band name “refers to the dye that is injected into the bloodstream to measure blood volume.” If you are going to go look for their albums, here are their covers so you know what to look for.

There is a player on the bottom here with a couple songs from the band so you can have a hearsee. Also, here is a link to some lyrics, so you can see if you like their message as well. Basically, I am telling all of you to check out this band and let me know what you think!
