Looking to The Bus For My December Read of the Month

I had an amazing weekend to start the month of December.  My father and I traveled back to his hometown of Pittsburgh to visit family and attend the Pittsburgh Steeler/Cincinnati Bengal NFL game on Sunday 12/4/2011.  This was my first trip to Heinz Field to see the Steelers and we had an amazing time.  It was a beautiful day on Sunday and the city of Pittsburgh was alive in black and yellow.  The Steelers dominated and my father and I had a blast enjoying downtown Pittsburgh. 

Savoring Another Steeler Victory

Upon returning home, I realized I needed to find a December Read of the Month.  After my Steeler filled weekend, I decided to pick Driving Home by Detroit's own Jerome Bettis.  This book has been on my "to read" list for a while, so this past weekend I finally pulled it from my library shelf.  This autobiography follows "The Bus" on his final NFL season which ended in storybook fashion in Ford Field for Superbowl XL.  I look forward to reading about one of the greats of the National Football League (and one of our local Detroit greats as well).

I also want to  include this sweet video from Heinz Field (not shot by me) of the traditional blasting of "Renegade" by Styx (a great Heinz Field tradition).


  1. I'm requesting for January you take a look at the book "Sorta Like a Rock Star" by Matthew Quick.

  2. Thanks, I will take a look at it for sure.
