Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Sunday column: On Melancon, Mandela, molding

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, Lunatics …


>> The Sunday column reaches across a few thousand miles to touch base with the Pirates’ Mark Melancon on his latest global journey, this to South Africa. My deep appreciation for his cooperation.

A preview of the Pirates’ needs at the Winter Meetings, by Rob Biertempfel.

Dave Parker’s shot at the Hall, by Biertempfel.

>> Penned an extra pseudo-instant column in the second period last night on the Penguins-Bruins fiasco lowlighted by Shawn Thornton’s ugly assault on Brooks Orpik.

>> I’ll be with the Steelers all day today, obviously, then off to tape WPXI-TV’s Subway Final Word, which will air around midnight.
