What’s Brewing 8.13 ☕

Saint Vincent College, Sunday afternoon. - DEJAN KOVACEVIC / DKPS

LATROBE, Pa. -- Good morning!

It's time to turn up the heat on our football-based Half-Off Sale on annual subscriptions, which includes purchases of gift subscriptions. We're selling those for $19.99, a discount unlike any we've offered, and that expires Wednesday, the day the Steelers break camp at Saint Vincent.

So far, we've sold 114, so a late surge could get us to Dale Lolley's original goal of 150. Or higher. Given that these things tend to take off right at the end, when there's urgency, I'm kind of hoping for 200.

• I've got Grind, led by football from out here but with a lot of baseball, too.

Lance Lysowski covered the Pirates yesterday in San Francisco, and he'll be flying out of there up to Minneapolis for the two-game set that opens there tomorrow.

Dale Lolley and Chris Bradford will cover the Steelers practice today in Latrobe. That begins at 2:55 p.m.

• I was part of the panel on WPXI-TV's 'Subway Final Word' late last night, and we'll post video as soon as possible today.

• If you missed the weekend's Site Stuff, there was a bullet train of tech things to share.

• Our Veterans Gift Subscriptions pool is at plus-2 after a Sunday in which two were claimed -- one from the Navy, one Marines -- and none bought. If you'd like to contribute, that can happen right here. Overall, you've connected 137 military veterans with free subscriptions since restructuring the program in May. Anyone who's served in our Armed Forces can request a subscription by filling out this form.

• Our advertising kit has all the info to show why our business is right for your business. Give us a shout to see what we can do together!
