I'll tell you what has me concerned

My town has a parade downtown to celebrate the Penguins winning the Stanley Cup. This means that some drunken Yinzer will be taking my parking space so I cant get to court. Why dont they just riot like everyone else??

1. If you're in the South Hills.........

take the T. Park in the Strip, a lot of parking lots run shuttles into town. Park Uptown, and walk. Just saying.

5. I got a parking space!

 

The Yinzers have only started coming. Amazing the number of people who are not needed at work.

7. I would have given my right arm to be there!

Of course I would have been at the parade. I did watch it streaming and they estimated 400K well-behaved yinzers were there, it was biggest parade in Pittsburgh's sports championship history.

I hope you weren't inconvenienced too much by the revelry because after all, WE WON THE CUP!!

8. They shut off the return route to the Parkway East.

 

I had to go back through Liberty Avenue and Bloomfield. It was a pain in the ass.

However it was the price you pay for winning the Cup.

9. Yeah that sucks.

Are you a fan? I grew up there but have lived in San Antonio for a long time. No matter, I'll always love the Pens and thank heavens for NHL center ice. So happy for all of them and the city.

11. LOL



In that case, I can understand why you were annoyed. If all goes well you may have to endure the madness again next year.
