All-Star Game a boost for city's image?

Some mornings, I open the Post-Gazette, and it just screams to be blogged. Take today's All-Star Game a boost for city's image, but economic impact limited.

What about that lede, folks? "Pittsburgh should get a desperately needed image boost from baseball's All-Star Game in two years . . . ." Desperately needed? If any image needs a desperate makeover here, it's the image of our professional sports teams. So why turn to sports to rescue us? And two years from now? Great. I'll set my alarm.

When the going gets tough, the tough turn to . . . sports? I don't think so.
