Colin Dunlap Column
No one cares about a loser. And many love to hate a winner.
Pete Rose is done. He will never — if this latest allegation and the smoking gun of an old betting chit are true — get into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. To that, I say this: So what? Who cares? What’s it matter?
So Mick and The Boys are going to invade the North Shore this weekend, blowing into town on their Zip Code Tour and — even at their advanced age — ready to rock Heinz Field.
Please don’t take this as a column advocating “loafing” — such a great Pittsburgh word, that “loafing” — because that’s far from what these words are.
A.J. Burnett lost Monday night. You can read it right there in the box score, in the game log, in the chronicle of that rain-fragmented game played against the Milwaukee Brewers. He has, however, won over these Pittsburgh Pirates for a second time.
If anyone in this town deserves to do it his way, it is Mario Lemieux.
Caitlyn Jenner is the former Bruce Jenner.
Watch out National League. Cutch looks like he’s back.

The only true constant in life is change. Situations evolve; the world keeps spinning and progressing every day.
AB will get KO’d in all of this. He won’t win. He won’t come close to winning. No, Antonio Brown will get knocked out in this fight by a family of old-school, North Side Irish street brawlers.
Don’t tell me about the down-the-liners.
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.
