Well, at least one playoff game anyway.  The Pirates-Reds one game playoff is Tuesday and we'll have it on WFBG.  Air time is 7:40.  Of course, if they win, there will be games later in the week.  If they win, they'll play the Cardinals in St. Louis on Thursday. And they did, 6-2.

And, yes, there will be changes, thanx to the Pirates' win.  Leading Off with Joe Shuta is Wednesday night at 6:00

The Penguin game was scheduled to be on WFBG Thursday night, it's now moving to WVAM.  Thursday, the Pirates and St. Louis begin the divisional series.  Air time is 4:40 in St. Louis.  Friday, the Bucs and Cardinals' air time is 12:40. 

Altoona football is on Friday.  The Mountain Lions are struggling against the tough competition in the WPIAL, week after week.  This week, they'll take on the Hempfield Spartans in Greensburg.  The Spartans came close to upsetting Gateway last week and are 3-2.  This Week in College Football will air at 6:05, the pre-game at 6:35.  And remember the MSA scoreboard show after.  Pete Kishpaugh will be on the field tweeting updates which you can keep up with on our High School Sports page.  Jim Abbott and Charlie Weston broadcast the game.

Saturday, unless other programming steps in front, we'll have the Penguins' game with Buffalo.  Air time will be 6:30.

Sunday, we'll have the Bucs and Cardinals from PNC Park.  The Neal Huntingdon Show is on at 3:35, pre-game time is 4:10.
