What Jeff Reed Taught Me

My March column is up at Pittsburgh Magazine’s site, entitled “What Jeff Reed Taught Me.”


[shoots the dead horse between the eyeballs]

[waits for PETA to email her aghast that she just wrote “shoots the dead horse between the eyeballs.”]

Anyway! I learned some things from Jeff Reed, it’s true.

A snippet:

One by one, the 49ers fans’ message boards filled up with commenters wondering if the team had mistakenly signed a “Jersey Shore” cast member to the team because, seriously, does this guy ever wear a shirt or is he just that dedicated to the “pics or it didn’t happen” meme?

Go have a read!

    Wow you really are ready for the Baseball season to begin. A football article with so many baseball references. Stuffed sausage comes to mind when Reed is in uniform.

    On Saturday night I was returning from a auction in Derry and stopped at the Sheetz in New Alexandria. On the doors were signs saying “Restrooms out of order….use Porto-John in parking lot”. As god is my witness I said outloud “I wonder if Jeff Reed broke the place up again”.

    @CrashJK, “at least Reed isn’t a rapist” implies that some local figure, possibly a sports figure, IS a rapist. And no one in Pittsburgh sports fits that description.

    Just sayin’.

    My sister-in-law is an avid runner and she runs in a lot of different cities.

    Last year, she ran in a San Francisco event called Bay to Breaker – a race which draws more than 50,000 people in stages of dress (or undress) – some racing in just body paint and tennis shoes. She said picture Greenwich Village or Fire Island or Provicetown on Halloween night.

    Maybe Jeff Reed’s found a home to express his creative side after all.
