Dunlap: Home Opener Is Always Extra Special

Deep, seemingly bottomless and unending, Federal Street on Monday just before 1 p.m. clogged and overflowed with patrons on their way into the Pirates home opener, many donning black shirts. It was a swarm and mass of bodies, a jam-packed Pirates party.

Dunlap: Bell 3-Game Suspension Deserved

Now we know. The National Football League has finally spoken. Well, at least according to multiple reports they have — and the league acted sternly but fairly from this vantage.

Dunlap: Friday Is Time To Show Up, Pittsburgh

This is the best sports town in our country. I have been to all major ones and many of the smaller ones. Pittsburgh — and maybe I’m biased because I’m from here and love this place — is the best sports town in this land.

Dunlap: Imagine Some Pirates On The Gridiron

It seems like this has become an annual pilgrimage, as Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin visited Bradenton and Pirates Spring Training camp on Monday. On his visits, Tomlin normally has a chuckle with the media, catches up with his pal Clint Hurdle and takes in a workout, game or both. But as he was there on Monday, it got me thinking … what if Tomlin had to, legitimately, select someone out of Pirates camp to take to St. Vincent?

Dunlap: Driscoll And Toole Tournament Matchup Is Intriguing
