Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Wakeup Call: Real games, please

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

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.

>> The Pirates are toast.

>> 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.
