Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Wednesday Wakeup Call: The joy of candor

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media columnist

Morning, lunatics …

>> The Wednesday column advises the Penguins to cool it with their hottest player.

Here’s a bit of my talk yesterday with Tomas Vokoun about being used little of late …

Here’s today’s TribLIVE Radio show podcast, featuring my guests, Paul Martin and Trib auto racing maven Ralph Paulk live from Daytona.

And here’s video of the monologue on the Penguins’ defensive work …

>> Cover story in the Trib today is on the NHL’s amazing ratings in the Pittsburgh market. As our Rob Rossi reports, no other NHL or NBA team can match.

>> Tremendous quote from Dick LeBeau: “It hurts to see the Ravens win anything.”

>> Hard to imagine a better wide receiver match out there for the Steelers, including financially and all kinds of intangibles, than newly released Steve Breaston.

>> The Dukes get destroyed at No. 15 Butler. From watching this on TV, I’m surprised this score stayed this close. Jim Ferry has much work ahead.

>> God bless Jason Grilli. Finally, someone with the guts to go on the record.

Who else will follow?

>> Lest we leave you with a negative note, here’s the outcome of Pavel Datsyuk taking on the entire Nashville franchise last night.

No. 13 is pretty special.
