Pittsburgh: The City of Champions

7 posts in this topic

Saturday night at 8PM my girlfriend and I decided that it would be a good idea to drive back to my hometown (Washington, PA... ~25 miles south of Pittsburgh) from Raleigh, NC to watch the Superbowl on Sunday, and if we won, go into Pittsburgh to experience the celebration. Once we heard the parade was on Tuesday, I couldn't pass up the chance to attend.

It was a very cold morning in the Burgh, with flashes of blue sky along with snow flurries.

This is Ben Roethlisberger's house at Washington's Landing. We assumed he was watching himself on Letterman at this point in time.

Great pics, thanks.

I was at that parade too. What fun. Everybody was nuts. Some guys climbed up a light pole to get a better view. Hines Ward thought that was pretty funny.

Fantastic picks like always Flash, great work at capturing a moment that most of us will have our kids look at when we tell them how Pittsburgh beat everybody 55-0 this year ;)
