The Best of Pittsburgh Sports

I'll admit it: I'm one of those "I just love my city's teams" sports fans. I genuinely enjoy watching hockey, footballs alright, and I'll sit through baseball if it's the Pirates. Regardless, I'm a Pittsburgh girl and this compilation of Steel City sports is too great to be ignored! Easily one of the best Pittsburgh videos I've seen that actually focuses on the amazing sports teams we have! Welcome to Buctober :)
Well it's like anything. I feel you cause the Oilers are playing their last season in Rexall Place this year, a facility that's been there since 1968 I think. To think of moving out of a building that saw the Gretsky area & 5 Stanley Cups is hard to swallow, but eventually you have to move on I suppose. Even my beloved are West Ham are moving in 2016 out of the Boleyn Ground they've been at since 1906. Overall though, there's not a bad seat in Consol. Been there only once but was a fantastic place.
@Spudsy2061 I love every sports facility we have, actually!! I miss the old one, but consol is pretty fantastic as well.
I must admit, I'm not much of a Penguins supporter having grown out of Philly with the Flyers (despite them not being my #1 in the NHL). Pirates are alright, Roberto Clemente was a class act. Pittsburgh's PNC Park is also very nice, I love that stadium! Consol Energy is also a pretty nice arena, there's not a bad seat in the house. Lot to love about that town for sure.
@EightyNine to each their own :) Pittsburgh fans are definitely dedicated!!
Pittsburgh definitely has some of the best fans in all of sports! That being said go Giants!

Mets make splash with 2 moves in 1 day
What a day for the Mets! When the Cubs scooped up Ben Zobrist, one of the hottest free agents in the league right from under the Mets' noses, the Mets needed a backup plan. There was talk that they might not have one, but they proved everyone wrong. They made a quick move for Pirates 2B Neil Walker, trading SP Jon Niese for him straight up. Let me be clear: this was a great move. The Mets, with four healthy young arms plus Zach Wheeler on the way back from injury and guys like Logan Verrett and Rafael Montero ready to contribute until Wheeler comes back, had no need for Niese. He was making too much money to be what was essentially their 6th (or even 7th) starter. But the Mets did need a second baseman, and in Walker they got just that. He may not be a superstar, but he is very solid defensively and is better at the plate than Wilmer Flores or youngster Dilson Herrera, who will now have more time to develop in the minors instead of being thrown into a starting role before he's ready. The Mets also scooped up SS Asdrubal Cabrera in the same day, signing the player to a 2-year deal. This one also makes sense, as the 2 shortstops on the Mets' roster are injured and racing to be back in time for Spring Training. In any case, Cabrera might be better than both Tejada and Flores (the guys who split time at SS last season) through and through. Like Walker, he's no superstar, but this was a very good move for a team that needed some depth. Sure, I'm sad to see Niese go after all that he's done for this team over the past couple of years. He's been through thick and thin with a team that struggled so much and he will be remembered as a tough Met and a good man. But business is business, and the Mets got two players that could start everyday for them on the cheap in exchange for one player that they did not need. When you look at it like that - and I think you have to - this was a great day for the Mets.
