At The Finish Line…Where nothing matters but the truth!

first_imgby Bill NealThe Pirates are starting to show a little wear and tear, especially the pitchers, but they will limp into the playoffs. Once there, anything can happen. Even the World Series . . . that’s right, I said it, you were thinking it!Continuing Steeler legends until the regular season kick-off. At 6’6″ and 240 pounds, L.C. Greenwood, aka “Hollywood Bags” was a 10th round selection out of little known Arkansas Pine Bluff and went onto become a member of the greatest defensive line in NFL history. Having played in 170 games when men were men, Greenwood was a six time Pro-Bowl selection and was voted first team All-Pro three times. A Hall of Fame finalist in 91-95-96-02-05 and 06 and of course, the four . . . count ’em . . . four Super Bowl rings. I just can’t figure out what the Hall of Fame Committee is looking for. Pittsburgh, call the NFL office. Let’s get L.C. where he deserves to be.Our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to the families and dear friends of the Gibsons of Gibsons Soul Food Restaurant for the loss of their mother/grandmother this past week and to the Graves family for the loss of a truly great friend, Houston Graves. God Bless you all.By now you’ve already heard the news. Of course you already knew what the outcome would be. “The Champions All-Stars,” led by former NBA star Myron Brown, defeated “The Savoy All-Stars,” led by former Indiana University and European star, Tracy Foster, 75-72. A great game to be sure and a great time had by all, including the middle school and high school boys teams. And special thanks to a great exhibition game presented by the Pittsburgh Bullets Pro-Team and the Pittsburgh based National Old Timers League. Thanks to the Thelma Lovette Centre Avenue YMCA management and staff and Mr. Aaron Gibson for a tremendous service.You, me . . . we keep talking about the Pirates and Steelers, but be reminded that the Pitt Panthers kick off their season opening up against Florida State, September 2nd. Go Pitt!“You Have Just Crossed The Finish Line”last_img read more
