Its quite simple, I live and grew up roughly 45 minutes outside of Pittsburgh. As the closest major city, if you wanted to go to a NFL game you likely went to Pittsburgh. Also, we are within the Pittsburgh television market so every Steelers game was on TV while growing up. The only time the Browns or Bengals are on regular cable here is if they are playing the Steelers or if the Steelers play at a different time slot. Therefore, due to accessibility the vast majority of people where I live (in Ohio) are Steeler fans.

Greatest Moment: Santonio Holmes touchdown catch in Super Bowl 43 to win it for the Steelers. Talk about a clutch throw and catch.

Greatest Game: Sugar Bowl win over Bama. Just to exercise those SEC demons and do it as such an underdog and against that team was something I will never forget.

Interesting article here that basically says the actor who played Barristan Selmy recently said that his understanding is the GRRM has already completed BOTH Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring but came to an agreement with D&D not to release them until after the show is over.

I am guessing that Dany's descent in to madness and destruction is exactly the ending we were headed for the whole time and is the same ending that GRRM will use. There was a meeting a few years ago where GRRM gave D&D 3 "holy shit" moments. Number 1 was Stannis burning Shireen alive, #2 was "hold the door", and #3 was said to happen at the very end. It had to be Dany burning KL to the ground. Though I'm sure GRRM will do a hell of a lot better job documenting and explaining this downward spiral. It seems like D&D are giving us the cliff notes and expecting us to fill everything else in which is disappointing for a show of this caliber.

Dany and Sansa are as close to outright enemies as two people who are not actively engaged in war against one another can be. Sansa is in active rebellion against Dany and committing treason by attempting to usurp Dany's claim to the Iron Throne by blabbing Jon's parentage about the Seven Kingdoms. And I didn't say she signed the note "love Sansa". It would be entirely possible for her to send a note to KL via Raven without revealing her identity. 

And how would she not gain by doing it? If the result ends up with Dany dead, that massively helps her cause. Her desire at this point is quite clear, Dany does not sit on the Iron Throne at all costs. If Jon and Dany lay siege to KL together and Dany claims the throne, it will be much more difficult to have her removed and have Jon sat on the Throne in her stead. However, if Dany is dead then there are no other logical suitors to sit on the Throne besides Jon. Additionally, if Jon sits on the Throne then Sansa's power multiplies. If Dany sits on the Throne, Sansa is nothing more than the Lady of Winterfell, if that. 

While a reduction of the army does not help Jon immediately take KL, I don't think Sansa is particularly concerned about that. A reduction in force suits Sansa's purpose of a wanting a prolonged siege of KL to starve out the city rather than a frontal assault. It would also allow the Northern Army to rest like she proposed in at the War Council meeting. With Dany out of the picture she can no longer manipulate Jon as Sansa has already accused her of and Sansa would be in a better position to pull the strings herself. Not to mention the fact that Arya is currently on her way to KL to kill Cersei anyway. If Arya succeeds, you won't need dragons or a large army to take the Throne. 

To cover her bases, in case the ambush of Dany's fleet doesn't result in Dany's death, she also told Tyrion about Jon's true identity. This information in the hand of Tyrion (and Varys) is good regardless of whether Dany is alive or not but particularly if she is not.  

Chaos is a ladder and Sansa is creating her share of chaos. Take her comment to Jamie regarding Cersei's execution for example, don't you think that was intentional to manipulate Jamie to return to KL? He's either going there to kill Cersei himself or to return to her side, either way it suits Sansa's purpose of either removing Cersei or placing all her enemies in one location and away from the North. 

“Don’t fight in the North or the South. Fight every battle, everywhere, always, in your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend, every possible series of events is happening all at once. Live that way and nothing will surprise you. Everything that happens will be something that you’ve seen before.” Littlefinger to Sansa in S7. Sansa is living by these words now.

I believe she is working multiple angles with the same end result in mind. By informing Tyrion of Jon's parentage (and by proxy, Varys) she is laying the groundwork for Jon to displace Dany regardless of whether she dies or not. However, her job of promoting Jon becomes significantly easier if Dany took a Scorpion bolt to the dome from Euron. 

Comment 08 May 2019

So I have a theory regarding the ambush of Dany's fleet by Euron. I believe that Sansa is a traitor and that she sent a raven to King's Landing informing them that Dany would be traveling to Dragonstone by sea. Remember, Sansa was in the war council when it was discussed that Jon would head to KL via the King's Road and Dany would take her fleet from Whiteharbor to Dragonstone. Therefore, she informed Cersei and Euron of Dany's plan which allowed Euron to lay in wait to ambush Dany's fleet and dragons. I believe Sansa is so against Dany that she wished to have her killed before she took the Iron Throne knowing that her death would cause Jon to go nuts, kill Cersei, and take the Iron Throne in Dany's honor. Sansa is basically Littlefinger 2.0 at this point and this theory seems like a very Littlefinger thing to do. Thoughts?

I think I would have preferred him to just decommit rather than stay "committed" and then shove Ohio State's faces into the fact that he's taking other visits. Massively disrespectful, IMO. You always hear people saying commit to the school, not a coach. Well I guess this is a situation where he committed to the coach rather than the school.

After gaining a bachelors degree and then going on and graduating law school only to realize I despise every second of being an attorney, my only is advice is make sure that your degree will (a) be useful, (b) translate to alternate career paths, and (c) be something you're passionate about. Taking classes just to continue learning is great if you can afford to do so but speaking from first hand experience I can tell you it sucks to devote a bunch of money to something only to realize you chose poorly.
