Pittsburgh sports fans have a lot on their minds. They are still reeling from a tragic event that happened 30 years ago, while also worrying about what could happen in seven years. Despite these worries, they are also excited about what is currently happening in sports.

Another fan shared his thoughts on the debate surrounding the hiring of a new Penguins general manager. He expressed concerns about Jason Botterill, citing his past mistakes with the Buffalo Sabres and suggesting that he wouldn’t be able to help the Penguins rise to success.
While many candidates are vying for the position, some are hesitant to accept it, including Kyle Dubus and Chris Drury. Some are even questioning the level of interest from Matthew Darsch of Tampa Bay, who is potentially the most intriguing option.
Moving on to football, one reader responded to an article about Levion Bell wanting to box against Bontes Verfict. Although it might be entertaining to see, the likelihood of the fight actually happening is slim.
Ben Harris shared his thoughts on the recent struggles of the Pittsburgh Pirates, stating that they’re simply regressing to the norm. However, the author disagrees, pointing out the team’s recent slump and predicting difficulty in the future.
Finally, the article addresses the growing debate regarding a possible new stadium on the North Shore. Some fans are concerned about the possibility of their tax money being used to build a new stadium.
