Next, we have an email suggestion from loyal reader Eric: a Fantasy WPIAL Football League. I think now, I've officially heard everything. But I would not doubt that there would be some interested readers, so please let me know and I will pass along the information.
Anton from Pittsburgh is looking for some "Pittsburgh" food ideas for a Steelers party this weekend, and specifically, a good receipe for Chipped Ham BBQ. I know you guys don't live on beer alone. Any party favorites to recommend?
Dan, from Fogelsville, PA, a former Pitt student, wonders "Why does every Steelers fan hate the Eagles? I don't get it. Most people in Philly kinda like the Steelers."
I gave him my answer, but I'd be interested to get the reader take on this question.
Finally, I may be retiring at the tender young age of 29. I received a very exciting email today:
"I am Mr. Aka Okolo, Branch Manager with United Bank For Africa, ILupejuBranch, Lagos, Nigeria. I have an urgent and very profitable business proposition for you that should be handled with extreme confidentiality. On January 6, 1998, a Foreign Consultant and contractor with the Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mr. Abbas Raymond by name, made a numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$15.6M (Fifteen Million, Six Hundred United States Dollars Only) in my branch.
This sum of US $15.6M has been carefully moved out of my bank to a Financial and Security Company in Europe for safekeeping. No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to the Law of my country, at the expiration of 7 years the money will revert to the ownership of the State (Government) if nobody applies to claim the fund. This prompted i to contact you. We want to front you as the next of kin of our late client thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of $15.6 million U.S Dollars that is presently in a Financial and Security Company in Europe."
Now I know this deal is confidential, and I've probably ruined it by posting it on this site, but I thought you might want to know in advance. Much like the inspiration for this site, I could inherit money by doing virtually nothing. And even if I cash in, I want you to know that I'll still do Mondesi's House.
