It's hot outside: How hot is it? It's so hot that the City of Pittsburgh has opened a number of daytime “cooling centers” to offer relief to senior citizens without air conditioning. Centers are open in Greenfield, Homewood, on the South Side and in Sheraden.

It's hot outside: How hot is it? It's so hot that the heat stroke-stricken Pittsburgh Steelers are going to try to find a way to blame parking lot magnate Merrill Stabile — who spoke truth to garbage about the Kenny Chesney concert mess — for star center Maurkice Pouncey posing in a “Free Hernandez” cap (a reference to former New England Patriots star and accused killer Aaron Hernandez).
