#17 - Common Courtesy Hit N Run

I parked at the laundromat last night. A corner spot. Something told me I shouldn't have parked there, but there was a snow outline from the car that had parked there previously.

Not 15 minutes later I walked out to find a note under the wiper on my car. It said "I hit your car. Please call me. [phone number]"

People in Pittsburgh have common courtesy, even when it comes to hit N runs.

#16 - Steelers

The loss that Pittsburghers feel
after the Steelers fall
is probably an embodiment
of battles lost
foreign competition
and fate.
It is more than a simple
loss for a team
it is a loss for this town
with chips on its' shoulders
dragged down
beat up
left for dead
and recovered
with little to show
but inaccessible jobs in
medical technology
and a bitchin' football team.

#15 - Bartenders with Rhinestone Studded Steelers Shirts

It seems perfectly normal when your bartender is wearing a Rhinestone Studded Steelers Shirt. During the off-season.

#14 - Unemployed Dudes w/ Yinzer Street Cred

Unemployed dudes who used to play bass in a crappy yet relatively popular Pittsburgh band (i.e., Buzz Poets), live in their mom's basement and drive unreliable '86 IROC-Zs pull more ass than white collar professionals who drive BMWs.

#13 - Group Photos

Making a group of foreigners' evening by offering to take their photo with their camera, completely unsolicited. A few extra seconds in the cold for strangers' lifetime memories.
