SPORTS WIZ—JANUARY ‘11
1. Pitt’s very first bowl was a 7-6 loss to Stanford in the ’28 Rose Bowl. Can you name the two legendary head coaches?

Now that I’ve moved away from my hometown, going back over the holidays is always a treat. With my nieces and nephews all about the country, it’s great when they all come home at the same time.

It happens every November. The brisk fall winds whip fallen leaves and maybe some garbage across fields and empty lots that dot neighborhoods all over the country.

By the way, to get the full effect you have to read this in a John Facenda voice. You know, the NFL Films guy. So start over.

Steve Gorman has been the drummer for the Black Crowes since 1989, when they were a fledgling rock band in Atlanta known as “Mr. Crowe's Garden.” A year later, the renamed Black Crowes exploded on the scene with 1990's multi-platinum “Shake Your Money Maker.”

It took four hockey nights in Pittsburgh for the Consol Energy Center to see its first win, an overtime edging of the New York Islanders.

If anyone asks you what people from Pittsburgh are generally like, show ‘em some game tape of Billy Gardell. Over the past 20 years, the Pittsburgh-born comic and actor has built a reputation as one of the funniest and most dynamic touring comedians around. Now, after appearances and supporting roles all over prime time television and movies, he’s got a starring gig on the new CBS sitcom Mike and Molly, debuting this month.

Gardell also just filmed a second Comedy Central Presents special over two sold-out shows at the Byham Theater.
