:10 It’s Labor Day, which means “No Labor.” Go figure. Anyway…this will be a “No Labor” edition. So shut-up and take it like a man…or woman!

:09 The NFL will split $765 million with more than 4,500 former players with concussion problems. That’s about $5 million each. Hell, for $5 million somebody can hit me again!

:08 Sitting on 63 straight wins, the longest in the nation, the Clairton Bears look to extend the record with a new crop of players. It’s not going to be easy, but I say they’ll get it done.

:07 I would break down the Steeler game from last Thursday night, but the Steelers didn’t play … no really, the Steelers didn’t play!

:06 Back out on that limb that Kevin Cameron refuses to go out on. I got the Pirates sweeping St. Louis. By the time you read this, the deed will be done.

:05 The Florida State Seminoles will come to town Labor Day Monday. I am going all in. Pitt in the upset. It’s a new day in Panther town.

:04 Tiger Woods says his back is fine. That said, I got him winning the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston. (I don”t know. I am just feeling good about it.)

:03 Alison Riske of Peters Township advances to the third round of the U.S. Open. Bring home the gold girl. That’s how we roll round here. Sorry Serena. Step off on this one.

:02 I want to say good bye to my “Special Cousin” Mrs. Shirley Grogan who passed away this past week. Far too soon. She was without question, the nicest and most beloved woman you could ever want to meet. Always a smile on her face and always the giving, caring, sharing person that we all wish we could be. To the entire Grogan family, may God Bless you all and may only wonderful things come your way. To my “Favorite Cousin” Darlene (smile) and Reece, keep the family tight and move forward. Shirley, we love you and you will be missed.

:01 Tyler DeShon Carter … it’s quite possible that if you don”t know the name, you’re the only one. But trust me, the rest of the country does and it won’t be long before he’s a household name. He, of the Penn Hills Eagles Track Club under the direction of Coach Chaz Carter and Bruce Schifino, recently participated in the Regional Junior Championships where he became champion in the long jump, triple jump, 110 hurdle and 400 hurdles and was ranked No. 1 nationally in the triple jump. Credit also has to go out to his hurdles coach Jerimey Ward, where some serious work has been invested. While at the Nationals, Carter finished 5th in the triple jump and was proud to excel in competition that included more than 8,500 athletes. But here’s the important thing. Clearly winning matters, but what matters even more as his coaches explain, is that he is an intelligent, hard working and highly respected young man. Those are the real skills that will eventually take him to Olympic Gold. Represent Tyler… Represent!! Go Eagles!
