:10 I am going to start you off with this information because some of you older cats doze off before you get to the end of the column…Terrence Taylor!  The first and biggest event of the New Year is coming at you and fast.  The greatest cornerback in NFL history will head up an all-star cast of other members of the greatest team in NFL history…THE – PITTSBURGH – STEELERS!!!  The rule changer, Mel Blount, and the man that held down the other side of the field when they didn’t throw to Mel’s side…J.T. Thomas (tell me again why J.T.’s not in the Hall of Fame?)  Anyway, Mel, J.T., Louis “Lou” Lipps, Randy Grossman, Robin “Big Rob” Cole, the legendary Andy Russell, Mike Wagner, and “The Judge” Dwayne Woodruff will suit up together one more time for a big time charity event to benefit Champion Enterprises’ Safe Summer Programs.  Saturday, March 29 at the magnificent Rivers Casino on the North Shore. The Red Carpet Dress to Impress extravaganza will be upstairs in the Grand Ballroom. Your $25 donation will include cash bar, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, free parking, free photograph and/or autographs with the players and autographs on your favorite Steelers item (one item per person). The evening will be highlighted by the Tim Stevens/Leonard Johnson Project, featuring international saxophone superstar Kenny Blake.  For more information, call The Champions at 412-628-4856 (be advised capacity is for the first 500 people).  Other legendary celebrity superstars include B.B. Flenory, Jennifer Bruce, Myron Brown, Master Jacquet Bazemore, and “Smokin’” Jim Frazier, just to name a few…and yes boys and girls, the Patriot Girls models will be there too…Big Smile!

:09 Speaking of Jennifer Bruce…and I was, tell me again why her uniform is not retired and hanging in the Petersen Event Center’s rafters.  All she did is score more points than all the men in Pitt basketball history. I’m just saying.

:08 If Pittsburgh is between Jacksonville and New England, why couldn’t we sign Darrelle Reeves instead of the Patriots.  Why?  Why?  Why?  Why?  Why?

:07 The greatest of all time, in this order, the Top 10, no exceptions.  Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julius “Dr. J.” Erving, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Oscar Robinson, Larry Byrd, Jerry West and Connie Hawkins. Now shut up and watch the game will ya!

:06 And for the record, I’d put Dennis “Mad Man” Rodman on LeBron and the party would be over…Didn’t I tell you to shut up.

:05 Eddie, still the president of the “Know it All Club” Jefferies, you are exactly right about Pitt and “South of the Border My Bad!”

:04 I don’t know where you take your child to be educated and developed, but it should be Banks Learning Center with two of Pittsburgh’s finest people, Linda Banks and Dr. Terri. They got it going on up there and them tiny tots be jammin. Go take a tour.  Call 412 -247-3922 for information.

:03 Ziggy Hood is gone…who?  Yeah, I know!

:02 Welcome the triple threat to “The Locker Room,” Lorraine Turner. Educator, model and the lady knows her movies.

:01 Pitt is not done. Beware of the Panther…and that you can take to the bank!
