my brother-in-law "Frankie Four Teamer" DIED Friday night after a one week illness. was VERY weird. went into the hospital last weekend to have a sebaceous cyst removed that was bothering him, it abscessed and he developed sepsis. I just lost my BEST friend and "guter comrade" who absolutely LOVED handicapping sports esp football AND he was pretty good at it too. being originally from Western Pennsylvania he was a HUGE fan of the Steelers, Pitt Panthers and Penn State Nittany Lions. we talked every day about sports and I will dearly miss our conversations

RIP Frankie "Four Teamer" Snyder Sept 9th 1946 to July 7th 2017

well it's been a week since Frankie passed. the mrs and I just got back from the funeral in his home town of Reynoldsville, Pa which is small town 100 miles north east of Pittsburgh. had a nice service for him. as a Vietnam Era Navy Veteran his widow Jan received an American flag. I cried like a baby because he WAS my BEST FRIEND and I sure will MISS HIM esp during football season. do NOT KNOW what I will DO. it will just NOT be the same this season

It won't be the same, but don't let that keep you from enjoying it.  I'm sure it's what Frankie would want you to do... and I have a feeling you may hit a few plays helped by some divine intervention.

well I am sure Frankie is up in heaven probably hanging with deceased Pittsburgh Steelers like Mike Webster who he idolized because he played center in high school @ Reynoldsville back in the 1960's and I am sure they will be lobbying the Lord when ever the Steelers are playing

thank you, Vito. good to see you back on Covers

I do NOT understand WTF with wheaty BANNED though

be just over a month since Frankie passed. have watched a couple pre-season football games and just NOT the same. the Steelers play their 1st pre-season tonight and he definitely would have been up for that as they were his favorite team in ALL of sports. I do NOT know IF I can even watch

even though it is just pre-season, Frankie would have been SO happy the Steelers WON @ Giants with the 4th quarter FG and that TD after the turnover
