Thousands of people rallied Downtown and in East Liberty yesterday. Mayor Bill Peduto estimated that 25,000 people participated in the Women's March on Pittsburgh. (You can watch video of that march here.) Hundreds more were at an intersectional rally providing an alternative to the Women's March. (This is how Pittsburgh ended up with two marches, if you need a refresher.) We also rounded up the best signs from both marches. Some were serious. Others were as Pittsburgh as it gets. Check them out here.

Thirteen of the last 15 Super Bowls have had a Manning, Brady or Roethlisberger as quarterback, and that’s just in the AFC, not including Eli’s two Super Bowl wins (over Brady). With Peyton Manning retired, the path seemed pretty clear for either Brady or Roethlisberger to get back to the Super Bowl this season and, low and behold, the two face off in the biggest game of the season today. So who would you rather have under center? And which team’s entire roster (and coaches) would you rather have?
