1. I am NOT going to punk you this April Fool’s Day, I promise. I have never once successfully fooled anyone on April Fool’s day other than the time in high school that I convinced my best friend that George Michael had died. That was before the days of readily available Internet (gasp!) so she had no way of verifying whether or not George Michael had truly died.
2. The Fans of PittGirl group now has 136 members. Somewhere, Jim Lokay is sobbing into his traffic report. But hey, Jim, rest easy because you can bask in the glow of your freakishly successful brackets.
3. John Ratzenberger’s Made in America visits the Cathedral of Learning on Wednesday, April 16 on the Travel Channel. The article is full of great information. I paid particular attention to the names of the pigeon-destroying falcons that live there, Erie and Dorothy. Can I propose to Lukey and City Council that they name April 16, 2008 Erie and Dorothy Day in the City of Pittsburgh?
Also, I discovered the Aviary has a live web-cam on Erie and Dorothy 24/7/365. Hey, how long do you suppose I have to sit here and watch before I get to witness the execution of a pigeon?
4. Slate breaks down the Buccos of Suckitude and quotes the Post as calling them the “faceless, tasteless Pirates.”
I almost had the urge to defend our Buccos. Almost.
