Boo to the yah!

Yep, I’ve read the Sports Illustrated article and I’m writing about that in a moment and I bet you the sum of one million dollars that it’s not going to be the post you think it’s going to be.

For now, my latest post is up over at the magazine and it’s about Pittsburgh being named the most livable city again.

I just wanted to say here, to all the other cities in the United States, what I cannot say over there: SUCK IT!

    “Of course, at the time, the Pirates were contending for a pennant.”

    A proper lady should never admit to being that old.

    Oh wait, I said “proper.”

    Ahem. Carry on.

    What irritates me about any piece every written in a national publication that mentions Pittsburgh in a positive way is that there is generally a, “we know you think Pittsburgh is a craphole where they have to put the streetlights on at 2pm because of the pollution blocking out the light of the sun but WAIT! Really! It’s not like that anymore!!!” Hello, can we stop being surprised?

    I think Pittsburgh is a great city but we always receive bad press, even when we are number one.

    People throughout the country think Steel mills, not world-class medical institutions and universities.

    Not to mention home of the Stanley Cup champions! Go Pens
