We get to witness brilliance. Not everyone in the sports world does, but fans here in Pittsburgh do, two times over. Please, do yourself a favor. Don’t take a moment of this for granted.
The other shoe dropped for A.J. Burnett on Friday afternoon. It was Gerrit Cole’s gigantic shoe, vehemently stomping out the possibility that Burnett should touch the baseball again in this best of five, National League Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Maurkice Pouncey is done. He’s finished, kaput. At least for 2013. The Steelers’ all-everything center and lynchpin of that offensive line was done-in on Sunday by some friendly fire, a cut-block-gone-bad from right guard David DeCastro.
