Brief and to the Point …
>> The Friday column virtually begs for real football amid 10 thoughts about the Steelers with 10 days remaining to a real kickoff.
>> Here’s our full Steelers coverage for the night.
If I haven’t said this already, we are very proud of this team — Alan Robinson, Mark Kaboly, Ralph Paulk and myself — that we’ve put together to cover the Steelers for you. We’ve had 3-4 stories a day, notebooks, collections of quotes, an inside-the-ropes feature breaking down plays and much more.
And there will be even more than that once we get to Denver.
>> I see the Cardinals extended that scoreless string of innings to 28 last night in D.C., which makes Mark McGwire’s comments late Wednesday night in Pittsburgh look all the more ill-advised.
I’d suggest the hitting coach should look in the mirror, but I understand that’s not exactly his strong suit.
>> The Cardinals not only lost badly in D.C., but also lost Rafael Furcal, probably for the season.
>> The Dodgers lost again, too.
>> Our chat transcript from yesterday is here.
>> Congrats to Todd Graham, selfless human being, world-class coach and now ravenous plunderer of Northern Arizona University.
I didn’t even know there was life in the north of Arizona, much less a school.
I’ll be covering Pitt’s opener over the weekend. The column, the Wakeup Call and all else return Monday.
