12 Years Later

CBS News (and The Good Men Project) cover The Lost Boys of Sudan, 12 years later.

When I was in college at Saint Vincent, we did a year-long project with some of the Lost Boys who were staying with the parish of St. Benedict the Moor in the Hill District.

We went down to visit them twice, spending Mass and an afternoon with them, learning about their stories, their culture and what it had been like since they came to the United States.

The third session, they came to visit us.  We had a huge cook-out and a great game of soccer on the Steeler Fields, and I really, really enjoyed the time I spent with them.  Check out the story and the video clip from CBS at the link above.

Things to watch for: Heinz Field edition

In case you missed the announcement, Pittsburgh Dad will be running special new episodes on the jumbotron at Heinz Field during home Steelers games this year.

Already, people in the comments on youtube are hoping he discusses why it’s called a Jumbotron, but there is no jumbo on it.

Also, the videos should also eventually be posted online as well, as revealed in the comments on youtube as well.

Secondly, before each game, Saint Vincent College, home of the Steelers summer training camp (and my alma mater), will be airing some sort of special video as well.  Hopefully I’ll be able to be able to see it online sometime.
