Weeks after its cancellation, new life has been breathed into Pittsburgh's Hell on Hills 5K. After organizers cancelled the race last month following the imposition of a city-issued public safety bill they said they couldn't afford, talks resumed and fundraising kicked into high gear. Weeks later and both city officials and organizers confirm a new date for the race has been agreed upon. City officials say there are still a few details left to iron out. Even so, race organizers are ecstatic, and runners are ready to lace up.

Ben Roethlisberger is coming off the worst game of his career, so naturally the Steelers have to face the best team in the NFL this season when they travel to 5-0 Kansas City on Sunday. But Big Ben's not worried, despite openly (sarcastically) questioning if he's still got it. Ben's tired of all the distractions, and surely Steelers fans are tired of all the nonsense surrounding the team as well. So here's some more nonsense, courtesy of DJ Gallo. Our weekly Pittsburgh Sports Power Rankings are all about Big Ben, who lately has been coming up rather small.
