So, what does a hockey team do in Pittsburgh for a

You have no idea how many times I’ve been asked that question in the last two weeks. So, since the RMU series was a Saturday – Sunday series, I’ll start with yesterday (Monday).

The team didn’t practice yesterday, but went to downtown Pittsburgh for the afternoon. The bus dropped us off at the Heinz History Museum. There was an exhibit in there about the Underground Railroad, and also a few floors of the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum. The guys didn’t seem real interested in it, so most of them wandered around downtown in the Strip District for a few hours. One of the restaurants down there is called Primanti Brothers. They serve a sandwich called a Pittsburgh Cheesesteak. I LOVE THAT SANDWICH! I had one last year on a trip to RMU…so I had to have another one. Actually, I had TWO of them yesterday. Not the smartest thing I’ve ever done, but it sure tasted good.

The guys then went to a mall and movie theater to kill some time. I, on the other hand, needed a nap after eating that much!

Today, the team is practicing, and I’m doing some laundry. Life sure is fun on the road!
