BIG SNACK AND DIEGO
Column: Weekly Top-10 Lists
Background: Big Snack is a local prodigy who’s turned all of his efforts toward blogging. The son of a city worker and bartender, Snack made his way through St. Rosalia’s grade school and Central Catholic High School, where his activities including playing baseball and basketball for the community and football for the State Champ Vikings (not when he played of course, but you get the drift…)
From there it was off to the University of Dayton, where he picked up his penchant for writing. He graduated with a degree in Sports Management and a minor in journalism. He worked briefly in the college athletics scene, but then decided he’d be of better use to you, the Pittsburgh sports fan.
His hobbies include drinking heavily, going to Pens games and fighting Devils fans, going to Steeler games and fighting Bengal fans, Guitar Hero 2 and 3, spending his life savings, not working, making fun of soccer players, partying like Casey Hampton (shirt up, bottle of Goose in hand), being as tough as Gary Roberts, complaining about the Pirates, having love for the streets, representing the 412 and drunk dialing old college girlfriends.
Since he was a young lad, Diego had a knack for two things… sports and the ladies…period. Growing up, not much has changed. Diego was born and raised in a small Pittsburgh town within the city limits known as Greenfield. He attended and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and his goal in life is to solidify his position as a Pittsburgh icon via the Pierogis N’at website. He then plans on moving to a tropical location and opening up a Steelers bar.
Diego’s hobbies include but are not limited to compromising his integrity, jogging, making fun of the less fortunate, giving the goonhand, saying the words dude and brah, lifting weights, slow dancing to R & B from the mid 90’s, 8th grade style (Boyz II Men and Keith Sweat are his favorites), partying like a rockstar, watching any type of sports except for the Olympics, getting drunk and arm wresting people, playing Xbox 360, foosball, and finally strip rock paper scissor. (Not in that particular order).
Their “expertise” is Top 10 lists and topical humor and they will be making a weekly contribution to Mondesi’s House.
Snack and Diego look forward to contributing to the site. And make sure you check out their site, Pierogis N'at.
