What if said idiot who is a Laker fan lives in PA but is originally from Orange County, CA? Likewise idiot Yankee fan from Yonkers but lives in Monroeville?

I've spent the majority of my life in New England, but root for all the Pittsburgh teams with the exception of my hometown Celtics because my dad's side of the family are all from the Fairmont, West Virginia, area which is Pittsburgh sports country.

Okay, one caveat, I'm pretty much done with the fucking Pirates although I'll always love the old Pirates - Clemente, Stargell, Teke, Haddix, etc.


For clarity, I should have wrote "those born and raised in PA". Also, idiots was a strong word. Let's just say they deserve a head shake.

What's wrong with a Lakers fan who grew up in Pittsburgh? I grew up as a Chicago Bulls fan in the '70s, we never had a pro basketball team in Western PA. So if you don't have a team, you're open to choose any team. We did have the ABA for a couple years, but it was never on TV, they never gave you a chance to like them or even see them.

Times Must be good there in Pittsburgh. Upgrading the football experience for fans. I'm sure it won't be reflected in ticket prices or the concessions prices, right? :P

It would speak to the values of the organization and league. I’m not a Raiders fan but even the idea of moving them to Vegas seems offensive to me.

Cities like Green Bay, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas Oakland and Pittsburgh all have teams so symbolize their cities, it hurts the game when theygo else or the prospect of getting a free stadium. If The Steelers left, I’d be done.

Dilly, dilly.

Shame the pub isn't dedicated to a beer that doesn't taste like watered down horse piss.
