Rinaldo Blog: Day 11

Pittsburgh - Fri. April 20, 12:37 p.m.

We got to Pittsburgh yesterday afternoon and the first thing we did was hook up the PlayStation 3 in my room again to play some FIFA. It's a good way to kill some time.

Jake Voracek is on a long losing streak. He’s not a happy camper right now!

After that, we had a team dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse in downtown Pittsburgh. It’s always good there. Big steaks!

As for the rest of us, everyone is upbeat and positive. We’re not looking too far ahead of us, and we’re not looking behind us. 

We’ve been to Pittsburgh a lot recently. This is our fifth game here since April 1. We should have just rented a few apartments.

Tonight, the thought is simple. I don’t mind Pittsburgh, it’s not a bad city. But I don’t want to come back again. Nothing compares to Philly.
