From Kennywood Park to Carnegie and Heinz Field, the “Sunday Night Football” bus welcomed Pittsburghers all weekend long.

On Sept. 30, Comcast NBCUniversal sent the “Sunday Night Football” bus to the Western Pennsylvania Boys & Girls Club in Carnegie.

Kids were able to learn about sports broadcasting through replicas of the “Sunday Night Football” control room and the “Football Night in America” desk.

In addition, three members of the Boys & Girls Club were selected to visit the broadcast in person during the Oct. 2 Chiefs-Steelers game.

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 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.
