So the recanvass of voting machines by Allegheny County’s Elections Division was uneventful, and there was “no change to the results” that will be presented to the Board of Elections for certification next week. The review of voting totals in 52 precincts was requested by at least three voters in those districts. In the affidavits they filed with the county, voters also requested a forensic analysis of the machines. That didn’t happen, but there is a possibility it could take place — if Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein succeeds in federal court.
At 10 this morning, you have an opportunity to give your hard-earned money to the NHL for a very special event: tickets go on sale for the Feb. 25 Stadium Series game at Heinz Field between the Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers. Spend as little as $54 or as much as $275, and it’s all for a regular-season game worth the same two points as the other 81 regular-season games. But is it worth it? Totally, Dave Lozo writes.

Suddenly, after three weeks in which the Steelers have limited their opponents to 14 points or less, the 2016 Steelers seem a little more like the 2015 team that sat at 6-5 after 11 games and won four of the next five to make the playoffs, holding their opponents to fewer than three touchdowns five times. This season has been even simpler to track than the end of last year. When the Steelers give up 21 points or more, they lose. When they give up less, they win.
Three Pa. teams are going bowling this holiday season — Penn State, Temple and Pitt — which sounds pretty awesome given the recent history of college football in the state. That is, until you realize Pennsy is one of 13 states to have three or more schools qualify for bowls. And yet, ours is the only state in the country with three teams ranked in the college football playoff Top 25. Without a team in the playoffs, Pennsylvania did pretty well for itself this football season.
