CRAIG’S LIST: Need to recruit someone who is a Pittsburgh native, living in Philly. I want you to put a Penguins jersey on the Rocky statue and take pictures. I am going to send it in to the Post-Gazette and other media outlets to show some pride. If you are interested please reply to this ad ASAP.

INQUIRER: This morning on WIP (610 AM), host Angelo Cataldi was on the case, appealing for a thug lookalike – a big guy with “menacing facial hair” – to “guard” the statue from 8 a.m. through noon, when a major assault was allegedly planned. Cohost Al Morganti, realizing the statue is at the Art Museum, worried if callers might stay away for fear of becoming “cultured.” “Who’s going to post the bail money?” one interested caller inquired, hoping to get the job – and a promised pair of Flyers tickets. He was told violence was not encouraged. MORE
