It is an interesting time for Pittsburgh sports ‚Äîmainly because the Pirates remain relevant as fall approaches.
Fans can‚Äôt decide whether to watch Bucco baseball or Steeler preseason games. This, for the last 20 years, has been a no-brainer for fans.
Imagine the decisions fans will have to make if the Pirates are in the playoffs when hockey season starts. Three sports with competitive teams.
The topic doesn‚Äôt make for the most interesting radio banter. The Fan, out of Pittsburgh, dedicated several segments to fans describing how they decided to follow both the Pirates game and the Steelers game on Sunday, Aug. 19.
You would swear some of these people were making major life changing decisions ‚Äî based on how they described the harrowing deliberations they went through. It is not that bad, that‚Äôs what the make ‚ÄúLAST‚Äù buttons on remotes for. Channel surf. Crazy fans aside, Pittsburgh is fortunate when it comes to professional sports ‚Äî just look at Cleveland ‚Äî where poor play has likely caused a lot stranger fans.
