As we enter the year 2019, our staff took some time to reflect on the best quotes we collected throughout 2018.
From a drama-filled Steelers season, to the Penguins' three-peat bid falling short, to the Pirates' strange summer, these were the classic quotes of the year:
“He said, ‘Daddy, pray for me. I can’t feel my legs,’” Vernon Shazier, to our TV partner WPXI on the call he received from his son following the game in Cincinnati in which Ryan Shazier was partially paralyzed, Jan. 4, 2018
