Continuing with the introductions for our new bloggers from Pitt Script, here's a brief Q&A with Anthony. Anthony helped found The Fighting Wannstaches and joined up with Pitt Script. We're glad to have him here at Cardiac Hill now and here's a bit about him.

What are your ties to Pitt?

Alumni and grad student (not soon enough a double-alum, but eventually). Pitt has been an everyday part of my life since August of 2000 when I learned the hard way: don't buy your books at the book store unless you have a home to take a second mortgage out on.

How did you initially hook up with The Fighting Wannstaches?

Bryan approached me with the idea he and Joe had talked about. I immediately saw a cartoon-like mustache in a circle as the logo, and it just snowballed from there. One day I got a text from a friend with a picture of a random "Fear The Stache" sign hanging on a telephone pole in Shadyside. The thought still makes me laugh to this day. Naturally, we fired the telephone poll.

Favorite/Worst moment as a Pitt fan?

Favorite would be the VT game with Lousaka Polite scoring on the winning drive (2003?). Heinz Field was absolutely electric, more so than I'd ever seen it for a Pitt game. Worst is Scotty Reynolds. I really hate Scotty Reynolds. Seriously, I cannot put into words my dislike for Scotty Reynolds. Hate. Scotty. Reynolds.

What do you hope to bring to Cardiac Hill?

I've learned as a Pitt fan that if you can't laugh at yourself, you're going to be pretty miserable a good portion of the year. Tino took 75 sacks one game? Let's photoshop Brian Kelly's head onto a box of Lucky Charms and have a laugh. That sense of humor allows me to see things as an irrational fan, take a step back, and then I can analyze things as a level headed person. I'm also kind of obsessed with uniforms. Yes, it's odd, but I'm not alone.
