What’s Brewing 8.9 ☕

Good morning.

John Perrotto's chosen to resign to focus on his health. I've put up an article on this with more.

I'm flying to St. Louis this afternoon to pick up the Pirates' series in Busch Stadium, and then on to Anaheim. We won't change our approach to covering baseball, and we'll immediately begin the process of looking for help on the beat.

• It's Friday, so it's Insider day. Dale Lolley leads the way.

Our company and our partners at WPXI-TV have launched another joint Pittsburgh sports show called 'Halftime Adjustments.' In this episode from Saint Vincent College, Dale and Chase Williams discuss a bunch of Steelers topics for a half-hour. It's also available on your smart TV, if you download the new WPXI Now app.

• Also, if you missed it earlier this week, our very special guest on Morning Java was the legendary Rick Sebak, author of countless classic documentaries about our city, on the set at WQED-TV:

• It's Steelers and Buccaneers today at Heinz Field. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.. Dale, Chris Carter and Matt Sunday will be there. All our football coverage, including Carter's Classroom, can be found on our team page.

• The Pirates are in St. Louis. I'll be there. First pitch is 8:15 p.m. All our coverage, including Mound Visit by Jason Rollison, Indy Watch by Matt Welch, and Altoona Watch by Jarrod Prugar, can be found on our team page.

• Dave Molinari, Taylor Haase and I have all our hockey coverage, including Dave's new 2019-20 Prospectus and Taylor's Drive to the Net, on our team page.

• Our new Veterans Challenge, inspired by Josh DeNinno at Moon Golf Club, puts forth a goal of connecting 1,000 military vets with free annual subscriptions in 2019. We've sold 282, including an amazing purchase of 10 of these over the weekend by one subscriber. Here's where to contribute.

• We're down to 11 Lifetime Lunatic subscriptions remaining, as we've now sold 89, including one more yesterday. We're cutting off Lifetime sales at 100, so that'll be it. They cost $299. If you'd like one, get it right here. And if you're an existing subscriber, we'll refund you the prorated remainder of your existing subscription. After you make the purchase, email us right away:

• Anyone who missed anything related to our fifth anniversary, we've collected it all right here.

• Our company has unprecedented reach. If you have a business that could benefit from this, as our many longstanding partners have, our 2019 media kit has all the info you'd want. Email my wife at to set up a meeting.

• If you're having to log in frequently on the app:

1. Delete the app.
2. Power the device down.
3. Power back up.
4. Reinstall the app.
