2021 Hall of Fame Game: The good, the not so good and the ugly during Steelers’ 16-3 win over Cowboys

CANTON, Ohio — Many questions hovered over the 2021 Steelers as they took the field for Thursday night’s Hall of Fame game against the Dallas Cowboys. While winning is always a priority, Pittsburgh’s 16-3 win was of minimal significance. The Steelers came into the night looking to answer some of those pressing questions. 

The Steelers managed to find some answers in front of thousands of their fans inside Tom Benson Stadium as well as a national TV audience. Those watching saw several positive debuts from players the Steelers acquired the summer. They also saw the emergence of a particular defender who is looking to hold off a three-time Pro Bowler. To the chagrin of their fans, the Steelers also showed some of the flaws that plagued them during the final six games of 2020. 

With their first preseason game in the books, let’s take a look at what was

Rescuing Rally Cat — Inside the secret life of a St. Louis Cardinals legend

THE SEARCH PARTY gathers at midnight with six traps and an assortment of fish juice, and five volunteers fan out. Under a glow of cellphone flashlights, they methodically sift through the bushes on a muggy summer night in a downtown St. Louis park.

It’s Aug. 11, 2017, a little more than a day since Rally Cat disappeared, and half of St. Louis is on the lookout for a long-tailed good-luck charm that ran into their lives during a Cardinals baseball game. The cat was last spotted here in Citygarden, a public park where foot traffic is significant enough in the past 24 hours that officials send out a tweet asking the public to “let the professionals do their job.”

And tonight, the volunteers at St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach (STLFCO) are confident. They trap, neuter and return (TNR) about 2,000 stray cats a year, and have a hunch he’s

What is the foreseeable future of Messi’s soccer career?

On June 30, the contract that the Argentine star has with the culé team will expire. During his stay with the Argentine national team, he could reach the definition of a story that would keep all the fans in suspense.

Faced with this scenario, many of the questions that arise in the football environment regarding the Messi contract. What is certain is that his contract with the Catalan club will end in the middle of the Copa América 2021 dispute, which was postponed for a year due to the impact caused by the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “I do not have anything clear until the end of the year.

LeBron on the court for the Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been the most active team so far throughout NBA free agency.

As of yesterday, Rob Pelinka and the LA front office have added 12-time All Star Carmelo Anthony, former No. 11 pick Malik Monk, former All-Rookie First-Team guard Kendrick Nunn and four former Laker veterans in Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, Dwight Howard and Kent Bazemore.

The team also re-signed 20 year-old guard Talen Horton-Tucker and added superstar point guard Russell Westbrook by way of trade last week.

Some believe this new-look roster has the Lakers poised to contend for an NBA title, but others have been critical of these franchises additions.

So far, the biggest criticisms have revolved around the team’s league-high average age.

LeBron James responded to these concerns on Twitter Wednesday.

“Keep talking about my squad, our personnel ages, the way he plays, he stays
