Morning, Lunatics …
Today’s TribLIVE Radio show — 2-3 p.m. — will feature special guest Jack Wilson to talk about the imminent end of the Streak. There might not be anyone who knows it better, given his 1,159 games with the team, all during the PNC Park era.
We’ll also talk with John Glennon, the Titans beat writer for the Tennessean in Nashville, and an old friend I got know well when the Penguins and Predators opened their season in Tokyo about a decade ago. Great guy.
But the show will open with the Pirates and, specifically, your calls on this question: Going back to that fateful night in 1992 and right through today, what one individual do you blame the most for the Streak?
Don’t hold back, either. Call me at 412-320-7925.

>> Eighty-one. Travis Sawchik reports from Milwaukee. One to go, with Francisco Liriano pitching.
As something of a primer, here’s my column from last year’s 82 game, with an unforgettable quote from Roberto Clemente Jr. to round it out.
>> Jarvis Jones and Le’Veon Bell will figure prominently in the Steelers’ present, Mike Tomlin made clear in his weekly news conference yesterday. Alan Robinson was there.
>> When will Paul Chryst find an elite QB like Jameis Winston? Joe Starkey columnizes.
Here’s our full Pitt coverage, by Jerry DiPaola.
>> I’ll be with the Steelers this afternoon, leading up to the show. (Hope to hear from you.) After that, I’ll put the finishing touches on the 82 column I’ve been working on for … oh, I don’t even want to admit.
