The Sheraton is across the river from Heinz Field.  The Gateway Clipper runs a shuttle across on events days.  Also, you could catch the T at the Smithfield Bridge and ride it to right beside the stadium. Most hotels in town are a close walk to a T station which would be a free ride to the stadium.

There are hotels right next to PNC Park and you can walk, easily, to Heinz Field.
If you stay at the Sheraton (Station Square) you can take the T but it costs like 2.50 each way.
Of course, the Gateway Clipper is available on game days but it's twice that.

T is $2.50 from Station Square across the Mon River.
On the City side of the Mon, throughout the downtown and to the North Shore and the Rivers Casino, the T is free.

North Shore hotels:
Hyatt Place Pittsburgh North Shore
Residence Inn by Mariott Pittsburgh North Shore
Springhill Suites by Mariott Pittsburgh North Shore
Holiday Inn Express Pittsburgh North Shore

Near Gateway Center T Station
Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Point State Park
Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh Downtown
Hotel Fairmont Pittsburgh
Townplace by Bridgestreet

There are other hotels in downtown near the T you can get a free ride from as well. The Distrikt is at Grant and Blvd of the Allieís. Itís a 5 minute walk to the First Ave station. The Hilton is near point state park and a 5 minute walk to Gateway station the William Penn is in downtown between Grant and Smithfield and is a 5 minute walk to the Steel Plaza station.

Dems are going crazy because intelligence community says Russia working to get Trump elected again.

So here is my question. What is Trump SUPPOSED to do about this. I donít think he has one responsibility but Iíd like to know what Democrats would want him to do in a perfect world.

Denounce it and make an effort to try to stop it rather than ignore it or worse yet openly accept it. Even creating the perception of pretending to care about protecting our Democracy would be an improvement over the alternative.

Dems and others should worry about our own Communist Bernie getting in.

Iíd like to meet somebody that voted for Trump over Hilary because of something he read on Facebook. I think the effect of these things is MASSIVELY overblown. Nobody is reading a few fake news stories on their Facebook and changing their minds on who they will vote for. Itís assisine tothink people are that dumb.

Bernie is a trude Marxist.....Those that have are supposed to work hard to give to those that need it..."From each according to their ability..to each according to their need"...that is the basis of Marxism.  HOw did that work out in Russia under Lenin and Stalin?  The collective farmers were supposed to work hard to feed the others and no matter how hard they worked they did not get anything more.  When they let the serfs have a small plot of land to grow their own vegetables..those little plots that they 'owned' produced more than the many acres of forced labor. The great achievement in USA came from people who worked hard to make it a better world and to also attain wealth for their efforts. Those people paid off their own loans for college or housing by their own hard work.  They did not plan on making minimum wage their life's goal. It was a stepping stone to better things for those with ambition. If you want to flip burgers all you life then you plan on living within that budget. There are many ways to get the money you need for college without a loan.  Find a job in a company that will pay for you to continue your education...study hard and win an academic scholarship..work at the minimum wage jog and save up to go parttime...join the military that have educational plans. Every college/University have scholarships that go begging for applicants. We don't need to fall into Marxism where no one will do well..except for the ruling class.  Ask Bernie about the 'dictatorship of the proletariat'....where everyone is under the complete control of the government until such time as the working class shall be the ruling class..then 'government will wither away"  It never happened in any socialistic utopia and it never will as it is human nature to strive  to be better...from the cave man on until today.

why do they call these things 'debates'  They are the farthest thing from a debate as you can get. The CBS moderators had NO control whatsoever.  I was surprised they could show their faces on the CBS Morning News today. They let Bernie speak all the time not letting the others get in their comments.  All the candidates should answer each question in an orderly fashion. Stat with one to answer first..then the next candidate gets to answer nex question first and so on. Who the hell was that last guy on the right?  So far all these debates have shown is how much each guy hates the other and points out all of their flaws making none of them attractive to a voter. How can you support someone after hearing what a terrible person they are for months?

Just a few things that I feel need to be addressed or at least commented on:


Quote
Bernie is a true Marxist....
Not true...European Socialism is much much much different than Marxism which is different from the Venezuelan Socialism which is different from the Cuban Communism etc. Nothing honestly in Bernie's rhetoric indicates anything aside from him modeling his government after most of present day Western Europe. Admittedly that is not a good way to get elected (Americans do not want to hear what Canada is doing or Germany etc...even if it is a stolen idea, they want it to be their own...it is just in our nature). Bernie is definitely further to the left than his remaining opponents, but comparing him to Lenin or Stalin would be like comparing Trump to Hitler. It's hyperbole, plain and simple.
HOWEVER, let's pretend that you are right and that Bernie is a "true Marxist." You always speak of a yearning for a "loyal opposition" from the Democrats when dealing with the current POTUS. IF a "true Marxist" were to win the position of POTUS, what would you want from the Republicans and moderates in the House and Senate? Would loyal opposition be allowing that "Marxist" to get their way so long as there was pork in it for your side (i.e. we'll give you free universal childcare IF you give us a border wall?" Or would you want them to be fighting tooth and nail to protect your interests? Just want to see what you would consider to be "loyal opposition" and if the tune changes when the other party has someone very unusual in charge. Just curious if there is a double standard here that Trump fans are using? My answer personally? When dealing with the likes of Bill Clinton or George W. Bush or Barrack Obama or Ronald Reagan, I agree with you (loyal opposition is a good thing). But when dealing with someone very unusual (the current POTUS is a demagogue of the likes of which has never gained power in the US, and Bernie would be the furthest to the left in the history of the US if elected) it is ok for one to want their elected officials to "dig in" IMO.

If you watched it in it's entirety then good for you. I am an entire debate behind (I just finished the Nevada one) and probably will just skip the SC one unless I randomly get a lot of time in the next day or two, which is not likely. However I did read reviews and the CBS moderators doing a terrible job seems to be a consensus. From what I heard from someone who is fair minded that did actually watch the debates it did apparently get better in the last hour than the first hour but still...shame on CBS for letting things get out of control. With that said, ummmm....did you watch any of the 2016 GOP debates? Again, curious to see why Trump fans feel the need to have a double standard when regarding debates. Is Donald J. Trump the only politician allowed to disparage his opponents, point out their flaws, call them names, etc? I would LOVE to hear how literally anyone on the current Democratic stage has taken a lower road than Trump 2016 did during his entire race.

Otherwise:

-Ryan, still have not had a chance to read your articles that you wanted me to read...I will try to get to them soon. It fell off of my plate! Sorry.

-Curious to see what the Bernie factor does for Dems in the general election if that is the election that we have. Team Trump tends to see Bernie as his weakest possible opponent (as evidenced by his cheating against BIDEN of all people lol), but that may or may not be true. Latest poll that I have seen still has Trump leading but not at the 270 without PA or Wisconsin (Bernie still polling well in MI, the other state in question, but effectively the Dem needs all three states while Trump would only need two of the three). My concern with Bernie in PA in particular is fracking. I know that even in PA fracking is kind of controversial but he may just be divisive enough on that to help Trump in that state. To that point though is there truly a good "compromise candidate" for them? Biden just doesn't seem to want it enough. Bloomberg is almost to Trump's level of scumbaggedness and if he were to win the nomination would be the ultimate crush to US Democracy (as bad as 2016 was, Trump still won fair and square, even with Russian interference...he did not 'buy' the nomination or the election, rather he took advantage of his name and fame, not unlike if Oprah or a Kardashian or Michael Jordan were to run...Bloomberg is truly trying to buy it). Buttigieg and Klobuchar still cannot get African American votes which would hurt turnout. Warren seems logical but it doesn't look as if she is even going to win her home state in the primary lol. The good news for Dems is that voter registration is up in those swing states, but the bad is that public opinion on Trump has not changed much since January 20th 2017. It will be close (as I've been saying all along).

-the White House's response to Coronavirus has been just awful, and if anyone saw his recent Tweet accusing the Dems of being responsible for the spread of this because they were "too bush Impeaching" is just laughable. I do want a show of hands however if anyone honestly believes that that is the case lol. A good leader uses this pedestal to warn of the dangers if infected but to instill confidence that things are under control and that there are health procedures in place when someone does become infected. A bad leader effectively says that "there is nothing to see here" and that one day it will just by miracle disappear. True or not, that does not help prevent spread to and from those not concerned and does not settle the concerns of those in fear. Blaming the Democrats just makes it worse (it makes no sense).

-just to circle back to a hypothetical Bernie presidency. I don't think that it would be much different from a Trump presidency. Despite the fears of the left, Trump has not made the impact that they feared (for example he has not been able to overturn Obamacare, has not successfully secured funds to build a border wall let alone actually build it from sea to shining sea) and same if Bernie wins regarding fears from the right (we will not get free college or college loan forgiveness, we will not get universal healthcare, the borders will not become less secure). Why? 'Un'loyal opposition! No way that Republicans would cave, and no way that Bernie would overwhelmingly help downballot Dems in places where Trump will win or someone like Biden would be more popular anyways. The biggest difference would be that the markets probably would not love it (big business would probably have the fear then the reality of being more heavily taxed...while the markets performed tremendously under Obama it is tougher to go back to high taxation at the top then the opposite).

this entire idea of the "debates" with a stage full of stooges..back in Republican ones as well as current Dems..is a waste of time.  Unless, you are really going to pick the winner on if he did not crap his pants rather than what he/she said.
When Bernie talks of ...free for everyone...that is Marxism that came from Europe. "From each according to his ability. to each according to his needs".....the CEO should get less than the assembly line worker with five kids, etc. since the CEO might now have 'needs'. 
Bernies people don't want any walls..so that would not be on the table.
I guess I just missed it all, but exactly where has Trump taken this country into such grave danger?  I did not see any of the thousands of people in India laughing at him since the Dems claim he is a joke.
Getting dirt on your political opponent began a long time ago in many places, btw. Going after this 'dangerous' man from the day of his election when one of the 'distinguished' Dems in Congress said we are gonna impeach that motherf***er.
And as far as being a Trump 'fan'.  If the Dems would have had another candidate than Hillary I probably would not have voted for Trump then.  And they are not giving me any kind of realistic choice this time, too.  I have no clue what these dem candidates would do as President..but at least we have an idea about Trump.
