Former Steeler Bryant McFadden can do a lot of things. He can defend. He can make picks. He can break up passes.

He can keep you up-to-speed on the sports world in the amount of time it takes to send an email.

McFadden joined the team at 120 Sports as an on-air co-host. The 120 Sports app and website provides original, quick-hit updates on the world of sports, from on-field action to off-field news and rumors; McFadden serves as a full-time co-host, offering analysis on trends and breaking stories on all sports (not just football) throughout the evening Sundays-Thursdays.

#Help: Grassroots Grannies Needed

The Pittsburgh chapter of Grandmother Power is looking for grandmothers that want to make a difference in the community. Grandmother Power is teaming up with the Jewish Healthcare Foundation to campaign for HPV vaccinations for children and young adults. The vaccinations serve as protection from most of the cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, a virus that infects about 14 million people each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The first meeting is Friday from 9-11 a.m. at the Rodef Shalom Congregation; RSVP to gottlieb@jhf.org.
