Take THAT, losers.

You know it already, but it must be bragged about in public forum:

More than 20 years after being named America’s most livable city, Pittsburgh has returned to the top of the list. The 25th anniversary edition of Rand McNally’s “Places Rated Almanac” will name Pittsburgh as the nation’s most livable city.

I should be a nice blogger and just point out that finally the rest of the country will figure out what we already know, that Pittsburgh is the Liberal Arts major of the country — while we may not be the most awesome at any one particular thing, we are awesome enough at a whole bunch of things. I should be a nice blogger and tell Anthony that he’d be insane to leave the Most Livable City for The State Where Wrinkled Smelly Old People Go To Die. I should be a loyal Burgher and put my finger and thumb on my forehead in the shape of an L and scream “LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSERS!” as loud as I can to Cleveland, Baltimore, and Cincinnati.

But what I really want to say is, “Take THAT, Sienna.”

Pittsburgh rocks.

I imagine right now Lukey’s assistant is taking a memo ordering the marketing department to commission a new billboard: “Welcome to Luke Ravenstahl’s Most Livable City!!”

    I’m still trying to figure out how Pittsburgh came out at number 1. Pittsburgh did not even make the top 20 of any of the ranked categories.

    Wouldn’t the billboard include THE PHRASE?

    Just checking…

    Da Burgh also got #1 on American Style’s Cultural Destination poll again:


    They must have rocks in their head, too, right?

    Negative attitudes don’t help anyone…

    Awww, Jason… Do I hear the whaaaaambulance coming down your street?

    Lemme guess… Every game you’ve ever played in and lost was because of the referees, right?

    The most important thing to remember is that win or lose, We Still Booze. Especially with our Mayor throwing out “The Phrase” like he wants us to get cirrhosis.

    Good thing we score so high in health care.
