Ya, Oakland got a little crazy. The South Side though, other than being rawdy, has been well behaved.

P.S. Stay away from the Swissvale/Braddock area. Our fellow forumer scottpriester is running around in the streets in his pj's causing a ruckus. Lmao.

Yes, I am disappointed, but I get over it very quickly.
What got me to thinking about this is the pending sale of the Steeler franchise. This is definetely worthy of top story news. However, it seems like even their outcome in pre-season games or any other story concerning the team or one it's players gets top billing.
The team is immensely popular because they have been so successful on the field and brought a lot of pride to this city in the 1970s, when all of the mills were closing, until today, in a revitalized city.
That brings me to my next point. In order to show the world that we are a city of culture, education, and technology, we need not emphasize our Steelers as the only great thing about Pittsburgh. This is what many people outside of Pittsburgh first think about when thinking about our city, i.e., the Steelers. Is that necessarily bad? Well, to me it is because the city is so much more and has grown up a lot and has re-created itself in the last thirty years. I respect any opinion. Go Steelers!

You get over it quickly? My man, you sure you're from the burgh? Be PROUD, be very PROUD! I'm stoned drunk right now, but NOBOBODY and I mean NOBODY can claim 6 Suber Bowl rings, EXCEPT the Pittsburgh STEELERS!

I don't mean to harsh anyone's Super Bowl buzz (but this is the thread for it) but why should I be proud that a bunch of guys I've never met won a football game? It was a great, exciting game, and Super Bowl parties are always fun, but there's nothing for me, personally, to be proud of. That's the kind of perspective that we're talking about in this thread--it's just football.

Yesterday I wore my Mean Joe Greene shirt all day; we went shopping at Giant Eagle at Waterworks, and every so often, I would simulate tackling my wife in the grocery store.
