Here's what that means: On Jan. 1, 2017, bus riders with a ConnectCard will pay a flat fare of $2.50. Riders with cash will pay $2.75 for each ride — no more paper transfers. Another big change: All riders will pay when they enter. Port Authority is asking riders to exit through the back. Good luck with that.

It's the combination of salty, sweet and crunch that makes the Sarris chocolate covered pretzels a holiday classic. Plus, the recipe hasn't changed in more than 50 years. Just try to watch this video and not crave them. We dare you.
This list of potential playoff scenarios is everything. (We think.) Here is every possible* postseason scenario for the Steelers with two games left to play. So before jumping in to this convoluted mess with two weeks to play, know this: If the Steelers win, they’re in. That’s all that really matters. (* – We did not include "acts of God" or "acts of Goodell" like an ill-timed Tom Brady suspension, so maybe not every scenario. Still … most.)
