Since rodfrisco.com launched in late February, I’ve been posting stories of interest from around the state daily (well, almost daily) over in The Ticker. It’s been reasonably well-received, but I have a feeling that the stories get a little lost and lonely sitting over there. So, starting today, Ticker stories will be posted as a blog on a daily basis, then archived for one month in Ticker Archive.
Here’s where you can find selected stories of interest from around the state on all sports, updated daily. Generally, these won’t be game stories; you can go to The Newsroom and check those out on the state’s dailies.
Here we’re posting features, columns, analysis, breaking news. You know, the good stuff (not that game stories aren’t, of course).

A feel-good story, to be sure. But I about fell out of my chair when I read that the athlete in the picture weighed just 72 pounds a few years ago. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Apparently, football players playing tennis is not as awkward as wrestlers trying to basketball, the latter a true comedic endeavor. From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
