Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Tuesday Wakeup Call: Special guest Jarome Iginla

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, lunatics …

>> The TribLIVE Radio show today — 1-2 p.m. — will feature very special guest Jarome Iginla.

There will also be an opening monologue on Root Sports’ recent handling of the Penguins and Pirates. The Trib’s Alan Robinson will be the media guest, discussing the Steelers’ draft. And the local Titan of Twitter @suckmeter will offer the Suck of the Week … in person for the first time!

To listen, just click on the link above. It’s free, easy, no signup. One click, and we’re on. If you’ve got an iPhone, iPad or Android, we’ve got the upgraded TribLIVE Radio app. Also free and easy and everything else.

I want you involved, too. Email: or call me at 412-320-7925.

>> The Stanley Cup playoffs don’t start until tomorrow, but the Penguins will have the big story today based on how Sidney Crosby’s visit to the oral surgeon goes this afternoon. He’s hoping to be cleared for Game 1.

All I’ll add here — and it isn’t much — is that I had a brief chat with the captain yesterday at Southpointe, and he was in good spirits … but there also was an uncertainty about him, a pensiveness.

We’ll see.

>> Marc-Andre Fleury is a changed man, writes our Rob Rossi in a terrific piece.

>> Podcast of my thoughts on Penguins-Islanders matchup.

>> The students at Plum High School make a Penguins playoff video every year, and I dare say this one outdoes them all. Amazing coordination …

>> The Pirates lost in Milwaukee. Rob Biertempfel copies and pastes from the scene.

>> Hope to hear from you on the show today!
