The Old Soldier got the bad news from the radio earlier today. The Steelers will play an exhibition game on Saturday, starting time 7:30 p.m. Why is this bad news? Karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy is from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday nights.
Which means that karaoke will probably start later than its usual time because people will be watching the game on the televisions in the bar and on the televisions in the dinning room where the karaoke DJ sets up his equipment.
Now don’t get me wrong. The Old Soldier is definitely a Steelers fan. But I don’t play football. I do sing karaoke.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
