NEWS AND NOTES

Too many emails came in to post the Mailbag this morning, so it's shelved till tonight so I can answer as many as possible. Of course, I did ask for people to send their last-minute emails, so that's a problem of my creation. To apologize, here are a few links to keep you busy this afternoon, WITH one-liners.
--The hands-down winner as link submission of the day: "Pittsburgh's Rooneys quietly shopping the Steelers", and no, the person interested is not Mark Cuban.
Stanley Druckenmiller, billionaire chairman of Pittsburgh's Duquesne Capital Management, is rumored to be interested in buying the team. Here's his Wikipedia page and here's his #91 listing on the list of Forbes' richest Americans of 2007. He famously paid for a bridge to be built at a cost of between $500,000-$800,000 in order to bring the U.S. Open back to Oakomont.
The Steelers are valued at up to $1.2 billion. Much more on this in the near future.
--The Pirates expect Jack Wilson to stay put, ensuring he will not play in the postseason for an 8th consecutive season.
--Chiefs TE Tony Gonzalez saved the life of a choking Chargers fan. "Chargers" and "choke" just seem to find their way into the same sentences, don't they?
--Is Phil Hellmuth an a-hole? It sure looks that way.
--Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann will be reunited on NBC's Sunday Night Football, making them personalities #1019 and 1020 on their crowded set.
--The NY Times spends 36 hours in Pittsburgh. Did they survive? I guess you'll have to click the link.
--Good news for the adult film industry: government stimulus checks are being spent on porn.
--Check out Stuff Yinzers Like, a new website devoted to coverage of stuff Yinzers like.
--Who needs pants to throw out a first pitch? Big League Stew wants to know.
--Anyone notice the Pirates' popped collars, honoring preppy douche bags? Bugs and Cranks did.
--10 Drunk Photos You Don't Want To Be In. Thank A.J. for this. And no, he's not in any of the pictures. I think.
