The City of Pittsburgh has Pirates baseball fever. The Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team is the talk of the town. The Pirates play the St. Louis Cardinals in St. Louis today in the first game of a five game series.
So, not only have the Pirates got a winning record for the first time in 21 years, the team is also in the playoffs.
It’s a good time to be a baseball fan in Pittsburgh.

The Old Soldier has been hanging out in Little Italy here in Pittsburgh the past couple of days, doing food shopping and drinking beer at Armand’s. The autumn weather has been beautiful, sunny and in the 70s.
I got the chance to pass out a few business cards about the New Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. I explained how the magazine is a paying market and that it’s about writing, culture and sex.
A couple of the people who I gave cards to are writers. It would be nice to publish some local writers. I have to wait and see what happens.
