Pittsburgh Tuesday takes
A job well done: To many, Gim Yee was the face of justice in Allegheny County. And while you might not know the name, you'd know that face anywhere. Mr. Yee was the sheriff's deputy caught in so many photos and news videos escorting criminal suspects to court appearances. Yee, 62, retired last month after nearly 33 years of service. We wish him the best in retirement (and maybe just a tad more anonymity).
Bucs are battlin': The Pittsburgh Pirates have been tearing up the diamond and against some quite formidable foes. And that's as the franchise has faced some major obstacles, such as key injuries and erratic pitching. The Pirates sat atop the National League Central after pummeling St. Louis on Sunday. Perhaps this is a harbinger of good things to come. Let's hope it's not simply the prelude to Pirates Colony Collapse. We still think bringing back the Green Weenie would be a good insurance policy.
Hey!: The Pittsburgh Penguins begin their quest for yet another Stanley Cup on Wednesday at home against the New York Islanders. The Mighty 'Guins are the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. The Islanders are the eighth seed. Pittsburgh enters the playoffs about as hot as any team could be and loaded with lines and lines and lines of talent. Here's to returning Lord Stanley's cup to where it belongs — in Mario Lemieux's swimming pool.
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
