Standard question: How did he get started as a Monster Truck driver?

Non Standard answer: His first rollover experience was when he was 8 years old

He built his first Monster Truck with his wife?

How much horsepower does Stinger have compared to a standard 18-Wheeler?

Can we use his truck at the Squirrel Hill Tunnel entrance to attack the Tunnel Monster?

Where you can find the YaJagoff drink in Market Square. Go get one!

We stuffed our faces with unbelievable food and drinks from Il Pizzaiolo. Wood-fired pizza and hand shaved prosciutto are all part of their new brunch menu! We know that it’s uncool to give a thumbs-up sign, but, we were so excited we gave it 29 thumbs up!

38:35 John Knight final check-in. His situation gets worse.

Don’t forget, we have a phone number, i.e. a heckling line. Call us 412-444-8JAG
