The boys and I spent a few hours today at one of our favorite places in Pittsburgh -- Carnegie Mellon University.
On this holiday, the university's offices were closed but access to Gesling Stadium and the football field was as easy as ever. We tossed around a couple of footballs for a couple of hours, ducked inside for lunch and then returned for a little more fun at Gesling Stadium.
What strikes me each time I'm at Carnegie Mellon is the intensity of the place. Its students are seemingly always in action -- exercising here, hooked to a laptop there -- and I enjoy every chance I have to be around them.
CMU is one of Pittsburgh's treasures.
