The first six months of 2010 have been incredibly busy in the world of Pittsburgh sports. We've had the Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes incidents, an early Penguins exit in the playoffs, another disappointing finish for Pitt in the NCAA Tournament, more Pirate losing, the debut of the next generation of Bucs, a Penguins defensive spending spree, the defection of Sergei Gonchar, the Steelers' going back to the future in free agency, and the drafting of new Pittsburgh athletes such as Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie, Beau Bennett, Maurkice Pouncey, and Jonathan Dwyer.
Yes, we've already experienced a wide variety of highs and lows through the first six months of the year. But could the best of the year be yet to come? I think that's a big YES. And to prove that fact, here are 10 games I think will be of tremendous interest to both you and I as the 2010 Pittsburgh sports calendar continues to play out.
For the on-air discussion of this article and all things Pittsburgh, I'll be chatting with Seibel and Starkey at 3:40 p.m. today. You can listen at 93.7 on your dial and online at The Fan website.
