So much has happened in the past couple of weeks, it’s been hard to post and actually spend some time on here!  I am now labeled as the Web Content Manger at Albert Elovtiz Inc.  The best way to describe what I do, is I am a web master.  I do all things web and deal with the web.  Pretty awesome because I can actually learn as I progress in my daily duties.
I loved where I came from, I’ll miss it for sure, but it was time to move on.  Life is funny like that.  Regardless of what anyone wants to think about being in control…your not.  Life doesn’t wait for anyone or anything.  This was just a simple case of me having to move on and grasp the opportunity that was given to me, and I am highly appreciative.  Moving on to another subject.  I am now thankfully back in the city of Pittsburgh…which was just rated the worst Soot city(http://green.yahoo.com/news/ap/20080501/ap_on_re_us/polluted_cities.html), taking of L.A.  Oh well though, I don’t notice it that much.

I’m a total city boy, I’m glad to be back in the city and seeing such a vast amount of culture and happenings on a daily basis.  It makes the 1 and 15 minute traffic commute in the morning bearable I guess.  That and you can always tell when a city is in a good mood.  The Penguins are in possible sweep mode of the New York Rangers, and the city is starting to have the feeling that we did when the Steeler’s went to the Super Bowl back in ’05.  It’s just an awesome feeling.

I’m just exstatic about the oppurtunities given when you work for them.  A new outlook on life, and a fresh start is totally warrented.  More to come as I figure this crazy awesome life out later….

I need something cool to do, and I need to figure it out soon. I want to visit some place warm, or somewhere exotic. That would be pretty ideal. I want to be able to walk outside and see nothing but beaches and water, and I don’t want to have to wait till July to do it! Oh how I wish I were lucky enough to be born in the tropics somewhere.

I’m just tired of this on again off again spring weather. About the only thing that rules is that the Penguins dominate….I wish the Pirates were the same. But, with a total contract worth of 51 Million, I doubt well be seeing anything awesome from them in a long long time. Well, until the Nuttel’s sell the team. Other than that folks, I have nothing else I can think off. Have a good one!

Other than Easter, this week has been pretty bland, I look forward to this upcoming week, to be pretty bland with a dash of surprises.  I really don’t have anything to say, except the Pens dominated and Pitt blew the big one, what else is new really.  All I can say is that I am so anxious for opening day for the Pirates it hurts.

I love the Bucs and no one can stop me!  Even though yet again they are going to suck and be the bottom shooters of the division, there is always hope and maybe one day, they will lose less than 80 games.  Oh well, thats all the info I have today, more to come later this week!

Patrick Swayze Article

If this is truly the case, then that is some sad news I guess. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of anything he did(even roadhouse). About the only thing I decently liked from him was that cheap ass movie Black Dog and the marginal role he had in Donnie Darko. If this is the honest to god truth though, that is certainly getting the short end of the stick and prayers go out to him. I read this article and saw the headlines and didn’t believe it, also this comes from supposedly the National Enquirer(which sells garbage).

It’s a pretty crazy thing to break the news and say a person has 5 weeks to live. If this story isn’t true, or doesn’t have any leg to stand on, I would be suing the pants off of this magazine if I was him.

I don’t know what it is anymore. People have no common courtesy to leave people be when they are in times of trouble if they are famous. I understand it was their choice to be famous or their choice that they have to endure what has been created, but I certainly believe that after a certain time it should shut off.

There is so much money being handed to paps, for the photo of someone sneezing or someone doing something stupid. Maybe thats whats so wrong with this country, or people like us read about this stuff and soak it up like its going to play some important role in our life. I am guilty for the latter, I do read the celeb stuff, because I find it incredibly stupid how some people can be and willingly do it again because they are so concerned with how famous they are.

I guess thats about it for today, if the story is true, then best of luck and prayers to Swayze. It’s a tough life sometimes, but we gotta work with the cards were dealt I suppose…..

Man, I still can’t believe Myron Cope has passed away today. I remember my dad listening to him during games with the sound off saying “Phil Simms is the worst announcer I have ever heard, put on the radio and lets listen to Cope.” I can safely say at the time, I always thought it was ridiculous because my brother and I would get yelled at for leaving a light on. But for two to three hours on a Sunday, he would have both the T.V. and the old radio, blasting at the same time.

I guess you could say, more or less, that I now understand what he brought to the Steeler’s and how it changed Sunday and made it better for us fans. Nobody wants to listen to the announcers on T.V. if your a Steeler’s fan, because mostly it seems that if every game, they are always against us, and never point out anything good. It’s always so negative. I to this day still turn DVE on because honest to god, I can’t stand Phill Simms and Troy Aikmen, when either of them are announcing, I instinctively turn that radio on.

I guess, you can consider it a game day tradition, that my father instilled in me because he loved hearing Cope and the gang actually represent the Steeler’s and not negative talk for the most part(only when they had boneheaded plays.) A tradition that Myron Cope played a part in. A tradition that made Steeler football games that much better. A tradition that will continue even without the legend himself. Not because I or any other fan wants it to, but because it was his time to watch the football games from the sky. R.I.P. Myron Cope 1929-2008.

horrible.  Life has its way of biting you in the butt.  When everything is going normal, life has a way of taking you down a peg.  It’s hilarious how it works, but it’s almost like your on the outside looking in.  You don’t realize anything is going to happen until it’s right there smacking you in the face. I’ve been in a funk, and its gotten to the point that I see a lot of realization happening.  That’s about all I  have to say today.

So Rock For The Heart is tonight….I must admit, I am kinda excited about it. I haven’t heard any of these bands and honestly, I’m not sure if its my cup of tea. Either way, I am highly excited, and skeptical all at the same time. I’m more of the hardcore metal type, I digg Suicide Silence, Through The Eyes of The Dead, Between the Buried and Me, Animosity etc. etc. I just love the rawness of their sounds, and their breakdowns. These bands tonight may not be what I listen to regularly or my cup of tea, but I am sure to enjoy it nonetheless. It’s pretty cool to have a job that you can say hosted a concert for charity and got to hang out and watch everything unfold behind the scenes. Planning for it, and all the behind the scene work has been pretty stressful, so I am highly excited for it to play out.

Other than that, I’ll be heading up to Grove City this weekend to hang out and blow off some steam. Should be a good time, it’s been a couple of years since I have been up there, so I am anxious to see what changed. I guess thats about it for this post, mostly it’s been a crazy hectic week trying to get restaurants to sign up for this dining card, and trying to get a candy guide ready for release next month. Keep it real.
