Editor’s note: I’m running this story because our sports duo of Micah and Perry is from Philly, and sometimes they need to be taken down a peg. — John
From our Posterboy sports blog:
If you have ever been down to Strip District and walked into Wholey’s, you know that the owner definitely doesn’t give a shit. Don’t get me wrong, you get the best and freshest seafood, (which is saying something for the city of Pittsburgh because it’s not exactly near the ocean) but they hack it up and dish it out right in front of your face. And now the owner of Wholey’s will be refusing to sell any octopi to Red Wing fans for fear of them throwing it on the ice at the Mellon Arena. From the countless songs to beer specials for shitting on Sienna Miller, Pittsburghers think a little bit differently than other sports fans and Mr. Wholey is just one more example. Here are a few reasons why Pittsburgh is better than some other sports towns:
Philadelphia: Pittsburghers only boo guys named Kordell Stewart.
Boston: Pittsburghers aren’t self-loathing and don’t want to slit their wrists after every loss.
New York: Pittsburgh news outlets do not report anything bad about the athletes, and lead broadcasts with player vacations to their homeland.
Dallas: Pittsburgh teams have a little respect for the game rather than bringing in guys like T.O. and Pac Man. Also, three more words, No Jerry Jones.
Baltimore: Pittsburgh has a hockey team, a quarterback and a football team that isn’t purple.
Cleveland: Pittsburgh has won a title in the past 50 years, and doesn’t lose franchises.
Everyone else: Jesus is on Pittsburgh’s side.
