Some sporting thoughts before sunrise …
>> The Israelis and Palestinians reach accord, forest fires break out in Antarctica, reality TV drops to the bottom of the Nielsen ratings, and the Pirates win in Milwaukee.
Well, at least one of those actually happened yesterday.
And far be it from me to diminish it.
>> This is my Tuesday feature on the Steelers’ Mike Wallace, complete with a KISS reference right up near the top. All that for two quarters.
>> I got the impression from more than a few Tweeters that there was much eagerness to see the Steelers re-sign Max Starks and/or Flozell Adams and/or Dermontti Dawson (who still looks great, by the way).
I’d say you’ll get a very strong signal as to whether they’re serious about anything of the sort when Mike Tomlin updates left tackle Jonathan Scott’s status at noon today.
Yeah, I know you don’t want Scott out there. I haven’t seen anything, either. But you’ll find that I usually defer to the experts when it comes to stuff like this, at least as the default mode. The Steelers had chances to sign Starks and Adams while in Latrobe and decided against it because they liked Scott better. Scott was anointed left tackle a lot earlier than other positions were announced.
They must have seen something, right?
>> While Wallace goes for 2,000, the Penguins’ defense goes for 200. Our Rob Rossi, back on the beat, has the story from camp.
