Welcome to Championship Monday in Pittsburgh!
In honor of the unprecedented sporting year of 2009 here in town, we bring you a special, themed MP3 Monday: some champs of the rock scene, Dirty Faces, saluting a champ of Steelers history, Rocky Bleier. You know, the guy who took a grenade in Vietnam then promptly returned to Pittsburgh to play for the Steelers until 1980, becoming one of their leading rushers of all time. The song is off the Faces' 2006 release on Brah Records, Get Right With God. (Definitely click on that Brah link -- it'll take you to a short video of the Faces' Bloody Powers learning to cooking amazing Mexican food with Modey Lemon's Paul Quattrone. It's a worthwhile lesson!)
Please enjoy, and congrats, Penguins! (Also, good job beating the Tigers in two of three this weekend, Pirates. We know you try.)
