    Big Ben building a legacy By Joe Rutter TRIBUNE-REVIEW Monday, January 30, 2006 In just two seasons, Ben Roethlisberger already has stamped his ticket as one of the NFL's top young quarterbacks. He has won 26 of 30 career starts -- including a 4-1 record in the postseason. He has appeared in two conference championship games, and he's about to become the second-youngest quarterback to start in the Super Bowl. What would leading the Steelers to a victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL do to his already lofty stature? Likely send it skyrocketing higher than the USX...

    Burgh Transplant will route for Steelers By Eric Heyl TRIBUNE-REVIEW "Detroit is such a great sports town, but it's starved for some type of success," he said. "I think about 90 percent of the people here want the Steelers to win. They're envious about what they (the franchise) have been able to accomplish over the years." McLeod doesn't expect many Detroiters to be surprised or upset over his bias for the Steelers. "It's no secret that I like them," he said. "I brag up here all the time that those teams from the '70s were the best ever." Of course...

    Warning: Winning a superbowl maybe hazordous to your Gov. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review One look at what the elected officials have wagered on their state's Super Bowl representative provides the answer. If the Steelers triumph over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL a week from today, Gregoire will send Rendell a bushel of Washington apples, some Seattle clam chowder and an apple and apricot candy known as applets and cotlets in the Pacific Northwest. Should the Seahawks win, Rendell will provide Gregoire what can only be described as an artery-clogging array of victuals. We can only imagine the horror on

    SEATTLE - We can't imagine the Seahawks without their 12th Man. But another team says the 12th Man concept is their idea and they want us to stop using it. Who knew the 12th Man was Texas? Turns out the first 12th Man wasn't a Hawk -- he was an Aggie. And Texas A & M wants to keep it that way and stomp out a 22-year-old Seattle tradition. The news floors Jeff Scoma, who sells Seahawks merchandise. "That's interesting that you can't produce a blue flag with a 12 on it or a blue shirt with a 12...

    You could be drinking with Santa in Detroit By Eric Heyl TRIBUNE-REVIEW Wednesday, January 25, 2006 Tickets? Who needs tickets? Scores of Pittsburghers undoubtedly will make the pilgrimage to Detroit next week. The Motor City, you may have heard, is where the Steelers will face the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL -- a game so huge it needs an extra large label. They will loiter in the shadows of Ford Field, a locale currently as sacred to Steelers fans as the Vatican is to devout Catholics. They will do so even though they have about as much chance of...

    Shaun Alexander was relaxing in front of his television when a face from the Seahawks' middling past appeared on the screen: Tim Brown, now retired after 16 seasons with the Raiders. From 1988 to 2002, Brown and the Raiders owned Seattle, winning 17 of 29 games when the Seahawks were still in the AFC West. Brown is now a commentator for an NFL preview show on Fox Sports Net. "He said, 'I love the Seahawks. I love what they do. But I have beaten them so many times, I just can't pick them,'" Alexander recalled. That perception helps explains why...

(AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks are more concerned with Ken Hamlin's health than when -- or if -- he'll be able to rejoin the team. The starting free safety was in serious but stable condition early Tuesday with a fractured skull and other head injuries following a fight outside a downtown Seattle nightclub. ``It's pretty tough,'' said cornerback Marcus Trufant, whose locker is next to Hamlin's. ``I'm very concerned about his...

    Court battle resumes between tribes, scientists over ancient remainsWILLIAM MCCALL; The Associated Press PORTLAND - The definition of "Native American" is at stake in deciding whether the 9,300-year-old skeleton known as Kennewick Man belongs to scientists or Indian tribes, lawyers for both sides told a federal appeals court Wednesday. The Interior Department has fought with scientists since the bones were discovered in 1996 along the banks of the Columbia River near Kennewick. A group of eight anthropologists who want to do research on the skeleton went to court to seek permission. But then-Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt ruled three years ago...
