For those of you outside of Pittsburgh, if you don’t believe me how seriously people here take their football, here’s some proof.
But here’s a story to illustrate what I’m talking about. On Sunday afternoon the Steelers (excuse me, Stillers) played the Colt. Because neither Renee or I particularly care about the Steelers I got us tickets for the afternoon show of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the church where I work. Afterward I pointed out to Renee that for a Sunday afternoon, the streets of Pittsburgh were deserted. We made record time getting home because there simply was no traffic whatsoever. Then we went for a walk and sure enough, few cars and even fewer people. But, as soon as the game was over, East Liberty came back to life…
One thing I can say, “yinz guyz” take their football seriously.
