    Props to From Forbes to Federal for getting the word out about the Bucco Blackout. Other local blogs I’ve checked haven’t mentioned it yet (and I haven’t had time to check Twitter). Was already planning to wear mostly black, anyway – that’s my Pirates cool-weather wardrobe color – but I’ll be sure to wear black top-to-bottom. Now gotta find what my husband has in his closet . . .
    Still trying to decide if I’m feeling more excited or nervous about Tues night – guess I’m really feeling both emotions simultaneously.
    Thanks again for helping to make this a tremendous season – the info and insight in your blog has been priceless.
