Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Tuesday Wakeup Call: Special guest Steven Adams

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media columnist

Morning, lunatics …

>> The TribLIVE Radio show today — 1-2 p.m., as with every Tuesday — will feature special guest Steven Adams, Pitt’s 7-foot center who I suspect you’ll find is cooler than you might have thought.

I’ll ask about his breathtaking dunk move last night against Seton Hall, how he feels he’s coming along in a Jamie Dixon system, how he views his NBA future and, of course, about Crowded House and other favorite New Zealand bands of mine.

To listen, just click on TribLIVE Radio. It’s free, easy, no registration.

If you’ve got an iPhone, iPad or Android, we’ve also got the TribLIVE Radio app that’s recently been upgraded and now does everything except take away Chris Kunitz goals.

Also on the show, the Trib’s Steelers beat man Mark Kaboly will check in to talk Ravens, Steelers and Bar Rafaeli’s peculiar passion for nerds. And we’ll debut a weekly feature starring local Twitter legend @suckmeter who will offer, in his own inimitable manner, the Suck of the Week in Pittsburgh sports.

I want you to be involved, too. Email: Or call 412-320-7925.

>> Here’s coverage of Pitt’s rather gnarly win over Seton Hall by our Kevin Gorman, focusing on the welcome emergence of Cam Wright.

And here, by no coincidence, is a quick vid I shot of Wright taking a couple Qs …

>> How far are the Ravens ahead of the Steelers?

Our Alan Robinson advises waiting for the next shift of the wind.

>> The Penguins are using Simon Despres more than expected, which is to say he’s in the NHL at all. But, as Rob Rossi reports, they’re still treating him as a prospect.

>> Hoping to hear from you on the show. Don’t be shy.
