I started this game because my chemistry teacher wouldn’t stop throwing discs at me. I got out of 3 meetings to stay at that practice. I’ll run the Cathedral more than you and throw at the Cost Center at 11 pm more than you. I love this sport and I love playing it for Pitt. Winning is contagious and I expect nothing less than wins on Sunday. Pittsburgh is the city of champions and we’re going to bring one back before I leave. Count on it.
