Animal Rescue League Dog of the Day

Phillips's a hoot! Laugh-out-loud funny. Cheerful, affectionate, playful ... what's not to like? Plus, Phillip absolutely loves people and other dogs.

Phillip's a winner and will brighten any home.
Phillip needs a home

Beat 'em Bucs!

Here at Joey Porter's Pit Bulls we focus primarily on the Steelers, but we have other interests, too, like the Pittsburgh Pirates, believe it or not.

Ya gotta admit, they are fascinating in a perverse sort of way -- kind of like watching a train wreck in slow motion, over and over and over again.

At this time of year -- really, what is there to say about the Pirates? Well, for your reading edification, here's a link to
an interesting and amusing article by Jeff Passan at Yahoo! Sports.

Did Pedro Alvarez really strike out 119 times in 347 at-bats last year? If true, yikes!

Personally, we like the "Pirates Haiku" at the end of Jeff's article.
