Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Back to work

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Don’t ever take a 10-day break. Not even after going 21 days in a row on the other side of the planet. A week, yeah. But 10 days is too much. Just kind of drags out. You start staring at ceilings and randomly falling asleep in strange places. All I wanted to do the past 3-4 days was to get back to events and writing and annoying everyone and all that.

Anyway, let the annoying resume: I’ll have a Monday column on Ben Roethlisberger, I’ll head down to Florida first thing Wednesday to cover the Pirates for a week’s worth of columns, and all the other stuff will return as scheduled.

That includes this tonight …


The joint venture between WPXI-TV and Trib Total Media continues tonight at 11:35 p.m. — right after the Channel 11 News — with the latest episode of The Subway Final Word.

>> Who’s on the panel: I’ll be joined by Chris Adamski, who covers Penn State and the Penguins for the Trib, and Mark Madden, top-rated radio host of 105.9 the X. The host will be WPXI-TV’s Bill Philllips.

>> What we’re talking about: The Penguins at the trade deadline, the Steelers’ plan for Jason Worilds and more.

>> How to participate: Each week, we also take comments from viewers through 20-second videos you submit on The Final Word’s Facebook page, as well as comments to The Final World’s Twitter account

>> Where to watch: In addition to the broadcast on WPXI-TV, we have WPXI’s live online stream for Pittsburgh’s many out-of-town sports fans, as well as video podcasts available on both outlets’ Web sites.

Here’s last week’s full episode.

Thanks to those of you who took care of the comments section and made them exactly what they are in terms of quality, thoughtful discussion. Trust me when I say that never goes unappreciated.
