After a week off, Three Rivers…One Show returns to City of Champions Radio with the usual wide-ranging discussion on the Pittsburgh sports scene.

City of Champions co-editors Matt Gajtka, Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss start with the Pirates, who have used a remarkable September surge to climb to the brink of another playoff berth.

What’s been the most encouraging part of their sprint up the standings? How do they stack up when compared to the other National League contenders? What is the optimal lineup and pitching rotation should they survive a likely wild-card game?

Later in the show, the guys address the Steelers’ erratic start, Pitt football’s opening month and the opening of Penguins training camp, as the Mike Johnston-Jim Rutherford regime takes a crack at reinventing the franchise.

The program wraps up as Zac, Larry and Matt deliver their Final Thoughts for the week.
