BenThere_DoneThat: Twice!

Chris

I'm settling back into civilian life, after 13 1/2 years in the Air Force. Before I joined that magical mystery tour, home was the Pittsburgh area. So yeah, I'm a die-hard Steelers fan. In fact, I'm still a fan of all things Western Pennsylvania... the Penguins... and even the pathetic Pirates. I suppose that makes me a homer, but I'm not beyond criticizing my teams or their players. If you've come here expecting a "rah-rah my team" site... sorry. They're all like family to me. I'm as likely to criticize them as I am to celebrate them. For the record, I have no delusions that blog access automatically makes me a journalist. I just express my own opinions on whatever I'm passionate about at the moment. Leave comments, if you like. I'll probably respond to them. Thanks for stopping by!

  In a repeat of last year, it has taken me until Week 8 to commit to this blogging thing. Work... family... sleep... more work. There's always something else that demands immediate attention. I had decided to forego the FanNation experience this year, and made a deliberate effort to avoid it. But just as with the devil cigarettes, I picked it back up in a moment of boredom and can't put it down again. Not yet anyway. Because just as with the devil cigarettes... I enjoy it too much to…
