  • Steve Blass sat in the press conference room at PNC Park on Tuesday morning with a piece of paper in front of him. He tried to condense his 60 years with the Pirates into a form that would fit on that one sheet, but there were too many people to acknowledge and far too many stories to tell.
  • New Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers when Antonio Brown was a rookie.
  • Last offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers flooded their roster with new safeties. Now they are tasked with continuing to sort out all of it.
  • The San Jose Sharks extended the NHL’s longest current winning streak to seven games with a 5-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins at SAP Center on Tuesday.
  • Hal Gill looks like a penalty killer. He was a 6-foot-7, 244-pound battleship who could stand at the faceoff dot and reach the boards with his stick.
