Re: 2021 Pirates

It's like your kids. You know they have flaws, and get in trouble, but the only person allowed to say anything good or bad about them is you. When someone else does, you get riled up about it and defensive. It's all OK.

Re: 2021 Pirates

I know Manny has been waiting for this topic to lay the hammer down and squash the hopes n dreams of like 5 peoples..... I really enjoy watching this team. I don't think they're a 100 loss team, said that since day one with their lineup. They're 11-11, in 2nd place in a crappy division...I'm pretty...

Re: PIAA Boys State Playoffs

Really happy for Berlin. Good team, good coach, fun to watch. Ditto. But the Altoona fieldhouse was NOT picked as a playoff site before the season started. At least, For this team on this given night. Therefore some flexibility was 'built' into the system but the system wasn't for everyone. Many co...

Re: PIAA Boys State Playoffs

Don't have a subscription so can't read today's paper (not trying to be smart, can't even get paper copy). You have to look at the bracket on the PIAA site. In the first round Berlin was the top team in the bracket. It looks like either they, or D5, chose to play at Windber. They won and in the nex...

Re: PIAA Boys State Playoffs

Crimson is correct to the best of my knowledge. Brackets are set up way ahead of time. Ranking or record has nothing to do with it. For instance if the District 9 champ is playing the District 5 champ, it is determined before the season which district is hosting. They usually alternate every other ...

Re: PIAA Boys State Playoffs

The top team in the bracket gets to decide whether they want to host or find a neutral site, I think it's as simple as that for these playoffs under the circumstances. Berlin could have chose to host if they wanted. I call BS to your post. HOW can the #1 team in the state, for the past month, regar...

Re: PIAA Boys State Playoffs

Berlin just traveled to Bishop Canevin only to have them forfeit due to COVID. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Just asking here, someone may know. In these days of Covid protocols, HOW does a school get to 'ask' for a larger neutral venue, (Altoona Fieldhouse) and have it granted, and as part of...
