PITTSBURGH There were an interesting collection of people in Pittsburgh this weekend.

The Red Sox were in town, of course. Sox fans took over PNC Park for the most park and flooded the streets around the park.

Then there was the annual Anthrocon convention.

That convention is for people who dress up like animals. The "furries" seem pretty harmless and it was amusing to walk to the ballpark and be standing at a crosswalk with a guy dressed up like a cartoon dog.

Then there was a a UFC card on Sunday night.

So we had baseball fans, people who dress up like animals and people who like watching dudes beat the snot out of each other all in the same place. The hotel lobby was quite a place this morning, let me tell you.

No matter what floats your boat, Pittsburgh was a fun place to spend a few days.

In other news, the Dodgers filed for bankruptcy today and Manny Ramirez is their biggest creditor at $20,992,086. The Red Sox still owe Manny $32 million over the next 16 years.

In the end, Manny won. He may be a cheating disgrace who will never get in the Hall of Fame. But he's sitting on $52,992,086 at the age of 39.

OK, off to Philadelphia. Catch you later.
