Re: “Wysocki on Pittsburgh’s five greatest boxers

Please consider my grandfather Henry Miller. He was the featherweight boxing champ for Pittsburgh and boxed from approximately 1915 to 1926. I have a gold medalion he won, Pittsburgh vs Cleveland dated 1917. We also have a tie tack that is a boxing glove with a small diamond insert. My grandmother said she got tired of dusting of all of his trophys so she just threw them over the hill one day. My son is researching him now and has found 40 articles that include him. Henrys name is on the statue at the bottom of Troy Hill mentioned as a soldier from ww1. He got robbed of his lunch money on day and took up boxing. Thanks for reading this.

Re: “Pitt game is bad business for Penn State football

Good assessment on Pitt Penn State. However, we should play the game every year. Correction, Bozic and Billick would not let PSU in Big East basketball! Crazy, but that is what pressured PSU to find another conference. It is something that should have been.

Re: “What will be Big Ben’s legacy in Pittsburgh?

I read this article and think: where is the rest of it? It's like the author got bored and moved on. I would hope that he might do some research (football is the game with the brown, oblong ball) re: Neil O'Donnell, who perpetually gets a raw deal after being left high and dry when receivers ran bad routes that led to those interceptions, when back-ups like Corey Holliday were pressed into service following injuries.

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

The Book Mr. Morgart is in is a Milestone in the History of the Martial Arts. The Books name is Martial Arts Masters & Legends Autobiography Book, U.S. & World Edition or Martial Arts Masters & Pioneers Autobiography Book: Who's Really Who in the Martial Arts Volume 4. From world famous martial artists to those only known for their lifelong dedication to their local communities, this book honors those determined to bring positive change to the world, one student at a time. It shines a spotlight on the lives of men and women who have taught, fought, and innovated from the early days of martial arts in this country through 2018. It is one of the most important works in the industry and is a must read.

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

I just bought the American martial arts alliance martial Arts masters & pioneers who's really Who in the martial arts and it is a very impressive book filled with amazing martial artists all over the world. Including Pat Johnson who was the fight coordinator / stunt coordinator for Karate Kid 1,2,3 and 4, Ninja Turtles 1,2, and 3, Batman and Robin and more. This is one book to buy and I can not believe mr. Morgart is in this book with very skilled and even famous martial artists around the world. Congratulations mr.morgart. You deserve this amazing achievement. If you love martial arts or action movies you have to get this book. This book even has Vincent Lyn who fought Jackie Chan in the movie Operation Condor

What a value!
You pay for eighteen minutes and then you get three hours or entertainment.

Re: “Adam Crowley: There is no saving baseball

I find the comment about their only being 18 minutes of action in a baseball game a funny and meaningless point when there are only 11 minutes of action in the average football game.

Re: “Adam Crowley: There is no saving baseball

So your whole life involves nothing that is slow-paced? You don't enjoy nature, experience the process of creating something from scratch, read a book, or go to an art museum.

Your soul is so empty that you can't enter into a slower way of experiencing the world, feeling the tension build up, the anticipation, the joy of fruition?

Indeed, I hope you don't speak for your generation.

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

Mr. Morgarts training came from Grandmaster C.S. Kim, but Mr. Morgart has also ventured out and trained with other Masters, Instructors and students from different Martial Art styles in PA and in other states (Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and Muay Thai). He has also researched Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Kung Fu and Ninjutsu. Over the past four years Mr. Morgart has been working very hard to create a martial art style and has not told anyone in Tang Soo Do about his plan until he felt he was ready to announce it. I have trained with Mr. Morgart in the past and just recently. He is a good teacher and Master in the martial Arts. He takes martial arts very seriously and wants to teach students how to defend themselves, learn respect and discipline. One day out of the week he and a group of people get together and have a wrestling/sparring night. Mr. Morgart told me some nights they do not wear any sparring gear and have sparring matches to see how it feels in a fight. I am very excited for Mr. Morgart and his future in martial arts. I even seen online about Mr. Morgart being inducted into the American Martial Arts Alliance (AMAA) 2018 Masters and Pioneers Whos Who in the Martial Arts Book and Legends of Hall of Fame award on August 3, 2018 and I would like to congratulate Mr. Morgart on this major achievement. Can not wait for the growth of Wei Son Do Martial Arts. OSS

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

I was a 2nd degree black belt at CS Kim karate before Mr. Mogart even started. Its a McDojo Belt factory. Completely useless in a real fight. The so-called self defense techniques are against opponents offering no resistance. This clowns new style will be even worse. Who does he think he is, Bruce Lee? So hes basically taking the garbage he learned at CS Kim karate and rebranding it as his own garbage? What a joke...

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

Sadly, it is people like Mr. Morgert who give martial arts a bad name. I trained with this person at different times through out his 14 years of training in Tang Soo do. He is a mediocre Martial artiest at best as far as his over all martial arts ability, and below average in his sparring ability. Key word being sparring ability. Sparring is a very controlled pretend fight in wihich students play an elaborate technical game of tag for points. : the man has never been in a real fight so he is the very last person I know who would have any a ability to creat a style and call it true self
Defense. For those who know the history, the original UFC was a true testing ground for those who felt they had a true street self defense martial art. What was proved in those early days was that so many out there, like Mr. Morgert, made huge false claims regarding their abilities and the art they created and taught. But when they had the chance to step into a ring and demonstrate their abilities, they didnt exist. Im very sad to see this article. And see these claims presented to the public. Me morgert only training came from his instructor, grand Master C. S. Kim. He is teaching the things taught to him and claiming them as his own style. The Gracies altered Japanese jiujitsu and than spent 65 years tearing it against much larger stranger opponents before they made such claims. What has Mr. Morgert done aside from follow his own instructor and than demonstrate extreme arrogance and false confidence in his attempt to fool people into believing he has knowledge and experience that doesnt exist. Sadly, he will only give the same false confidence to anyone who trains with him as he has in
Himself.. Im very sad to see this publication backing someone like this.. thank you. Master Brian Ward

Re: “Marc-Andre Fleury doesn’t belong to Pittsburgh anymore

You are soo wrong Rob Rossi. What does cheering for one hellavu guy and wishing him the best have to do with moving on? This article should not have been written. Give people enough credit to understand he's not Pittsburgh anymore...Maybe its the love of "the guy" that makes them want to see him win.

Re: “Marc-Andre Fleury doesn’t belong to Pittsburgh anymore

Oh Rob, I would expect something like this from you! Every team has one or more of those players who, when they leave, no matter what the circumstance, they still hold a special places in the hearts of the fans. Fleury will always be a Penguin in my heart, and in the hearts of thousands.
