Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Wednesday Wakeup Call: How safe do you feel?

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, lunatics …

>> The Wednesday column hopes that Boston proves lesson-worthy for stadium/arena security everywhere. My thanks to officials with the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates for their prompt and professional help yesterday.

And this is where you come in.

I share a couple of my experiences up there, and I want to hear yours. Doesn’t have to be at Heinz Field, Consol Energy Center or PNC Park. Can be anywhere, any city, any sporting event that draws a crowd.

I’ll thank you in advance, as I very much consider this to be an actual part of the Wednesday column. (And yeah, your cut of the check’s in the mail.)

>> And then there’s the matter of our own upcoming marathon, as Karen Price reports.

>> The Penguins are playing another outdoor game? Their third?

This reminds me of how the comic book industry, every time it goes into a sales slump, begins adding a bunch of Batman titles. Because Batman always sells. Does wonders in the short term, nothing at all in the long.

Hey how about a game at Buckeye Stadium in Columbus, where they could use it?

>> One versus eight … the dream lives.

>> James McDonald insists he’s healthy. That might be even more worrisome for the Pirates.

>> The Steelers’ complete schedule will be announced tomorrow, but Ben Roethlisberger told teammates at voluntary workouts yesterday that the 2013 season starts right now.

>> Alan Robinson’s NFL draft series opens with running backs.

>> I’ll visit with TribLIVE Radio today at 1:30 p.m. And here’s the podcast of yesterday’s full show.
