Run Bobby, RUN!

The headline of PittGirl’s nightmares.

Paired with the most awesomely hilarious photo of Bob O’Connor EVER.

This might be my favorite story of the year so far.

    My favorite quote so far from the ordeal is this: “And Mr. O’Connor, whose wife, Judy, was at work in the hot zone, ran across Penn Avenue shielded by his bodyguard, Officer Joseph Ryczaj, to check on her.”

    Ok, so are we being infiltrated by ebola since we seem to work in the “hot zone”? I hate overly dramatic media!

    Isn’t it bad enough that Nordstroms moving to Ross Park was breaking news with a huge number of reporters on the scene this morning on Channel 11 news? They made it sound as if Pittsburgh was going to be the host to the Pope and President on the same day!! It’s a department store with high prices not a free giveaway of Manolo Blahniks for gosh sakes!

    Is Bob O’Connor the real Forrest Gump?

    Mayor Bob should have donned his suit of armour from his personal _medieval_ collection. It’s better than a body guard..a little clunky to run in though.
