Thing I like about Philly.. easy access to NY, DC, the shore..
From Pitt you have easy access to Cleveland, Buffalo and a lake.
Guess I'd rather swim in salt water.
I do like Pitt, but Philly wins due to its proximity to where I like going on wekends.

The classic Pennsylvania battle. Philly for me, but obviously I'm a bit biased. :-)

Let's see what fate the football gods decide.

This is really, really hard

I think I would choose Pittsburgh. It's an amazing little city and the natural setting is just stunning beyond reason. It would mean more of the Great Lakes misery I've endured, but it is a gorgeous place And I love the bridges and rivers.

I agree. I'm from Pittsburgh as well, also went to college there. We certainly had our "feelings" about the kids from Philly (who were in reality pretty much like us), and they were not good!

Woh, Philly came just short on their amazing comeback.
