my 1st trip to pittsburgh that i can remember was for his high school graduation when i was 3 years old. although i only spent 3 summers up there with him around, the last 2 i was an adult. we partied and hung out and it was like we grew up together, yet it was like we were both kids. he told me i was more like a brother than my dad and other uncles.

its not really known if he died from suicide or accidental overdose, but in my heart i feel it was accidental. i didnt get to go to his funeral, and although ive only been to 2 in my life, i know this one will be the toughest. although i wish i didnt have to do it, i know its the 1st thing im gonna want to do.

i dont know if its wierd to want my daughter to witness my pain. although she knows of death, i think this will help her understand it and show her how valuable life is. other than that its a beautiful cemetary and a 10 minute walk from 'home'. i always walked through there even though i had no one else to visit. this time i will also have my great grandmother 'bubka' to see.

on a lighter note i just spoke to my uncle picking us up at the airport. since it will be around dinner time, 5 minutes after driving through the fort pitt tunnel we will be at Primantis!
Sounds like you guys were real close - some people just hit it off right away even in a limited amount of time together.

I hope you get the closure you are looking for regarding his untimely death.

I also don't think its a bad thing to let your daughter to see you upset - some people shield their kids from natural emotions too much.

Have a great time , man.

i just called my dad and had him order me tickets to the BB game. anyone got any insight on outfield 139D 11,12,13?
I used to live 2 doors down from the Church Brew Works, which is in Lawrenceville, and just down the road from Gators, which is in Bloomfield. I never went to either place, but I've heard both are nice places to go. The Strip is nice, and they have done a lot of redevelopment on the eastern end of the area (I was just over there yesterday, in fact)...as for the crime, I haven't heard about any major incidents over there in the past couple of years, so maybe they've cleaned it up a bit. As for the Pirates tickets, section 139 is the first section in center field and they're pretty good seats - not far above field level. Hopefully by then they won't be 20 games under .500 and not worth watching LOL...

thanks. i got a chance to look at a seating chart and saw theyre pretty much right behind the pitcher. im assuming D is the 4th row up and i think griffey jr. still plays center so i will have to think of some good heckles. i was hoping most the seats would be empty so i could possibly shag a hr ball but they seem pretty packed.

that will be great if the pirates are only 20 games out of .500. i'll have a little extra something to root for! it will definitely be the closest seat ive ever had to the field, even though i hear every seat seems close to the field. last time i went was the final year at 3 rivers, exactly behind home plate but on the 6th level (red?). it was actually pretty cool up there.

has anyone been to the museum lately? i checked their website to see what exhibits they had and was extremely disappointed to see dinosaur hall is taken down and under complete renovation. is even the allosaurus in the entrance still up? my little girl is so pumped to see them. i guess dippy out front will have to do. from what i read the new exhibit open in november will be the finest in the world.

in the name of not being selfish i turned down the suggestion we make a day trip to the pro football hall of fame. i couldnt handle not going that close to the game or the inductions anyways.

i cant believe i am gonna be so close to camp tomorrow and the hall of fame game, and with minimal internet access or tv watching time i am gonna be more out of touch with steelers happenings than i am now, thousands of miles away..

but atleast i get to see those buccos (i may have to join the walk out after the 3rd inning).

so as a social experiment i was thinking of taking my throwback oilers steve mcnair jersey to wear to kennywood or something. good idea?

Hey Tony...

When you go to the gravesite...

Make sure your daughter is right next to you... seeing you cry.

explain your love for him... and how it is ok to cry when you miss them...


Seems like you already know that though...

God bless... I will be praying for you.
