After weeks of close contests and national debate, the fraught competition to decide America's ugliest accent has finally come to a dramatic close. And the winner is that moonlit, magical city—the Paris of Allegheny County, the Venice of the Ohio Valley—Pittsburgh, City of Jagoffs.
Stillers, Pirates, and Penguins logos, all floating over the Pittsburgh skyline. Yes, this is a very Yinzer tattoo indeed.
You are probably not going to see anyone as drunk as the guy featured in this report on a Luke Bryan concert tonight in Pittsburgh, as aired on WPXI's 11pm news.
Sidney Crosby renewed his driver's license at the DMV this week. Unlike all of the rest of us, he didn't have to wait, thanks to Pennsylvania state policy. GET ANGRY (or don't because this policy actually makes sense).
These photos were sent to us by a tipster who'd like to stay anonymous, since this guy looks like the type who communicates only through hurled liquor bottles.
Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,…
It took 28 seconds for the Bruins to score first in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. It took even less time than that for Sidney Crosby and the Penguins to shit their pants.
The map above shows the concentration of geolocated tweets sent during the Super Bowl that contained both the words "Lewis" and "murder." We were looking for references to Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who in 2000 was charged with murder in the stabbing deaths of two men after an Atlanta Super Bowl party (he…
We told you earlier how Arizona Cardinals fullback Reagan Maui'a told ESPN he had met Lennay Kekua, which is rather odd because she doesn't actually exist. But also buried in that report was Kekua's reference to another famous Samoan football player:
Oh, this is great. WWE was in Pittsburgh to tape Raw last night, and before the show Daniel Bryan dropped by the hospital to meet one of his biggest fans, 7-year-old Conner "Stone Crusher" Michalek.
We've previously alerted you to the greatness of Andrew McCutchen, and last night he made us swoon once again. Even though his team lost 3-0 in the opening game of a series against the Cincinnati Reds, McCutchen gave us the highlight of the game when he took an Aroldis Chapman fireball square on the arm, and then…
Tipster Steve P. just sent in an email with the subject line "Oh how the mighty have fallen..." The Pitt alum figured people would like to know that when he called the Papa John's in the Dormont section of Steelerville, he learned his "pizza experience [is] managed by joe pa." You know, just in case.
Rick Pitino's a New Yorker who made his bones in the Big East, so naturally he's upset about Syracuse's and Pittsburgh's ACC exodus. At Big East media days, he had some harsh words for the Judases:
Notre Dame appeared to be hellbent on working themselves to a 1-3 record today, but the Pitt Panthers would have none of that. The game looked to have all the makings of another terrible Notre Dame loss:
Sometimes, words beyond "thank you, Penguins play-by-play guy Paul Steigerwald and Friends" are unnecessary. This is one of those times.
Journeyman catcher Dane Sardinha was seen decompressing like a champion at August Henry's early Sunday morning, which is typical behavior after anyone is forced to backstop a Kyle Kendrick emergency start. Even though Sardinha went hitless in the Phillies loss to the Pirates, he probably made solid wood contact later…
This story is all kinds of horrifying. And, yeah, in part because we've seen how many cops are present at Pirates games to tase drunk folks.
Butler somehow escaped this one, 71-70, and will advance to the Sweet 16, while Pitt became the first one seed to get knocked out of this year's tournament in the worst way imaginable. Tim Brando and Mike Gminski declared that they'd never seen "an ending like this" before Gilbert Brown missed his second free throw,…
Pirates owner Bob Nutting is still bitter over the Penguins' ownership group's attempt to buy the Bucs. When the Pirates fired back with a petty, "objective" column (on a team-run site) trashing the Pens for this season's failure, it ignited a firestorm.
Here in New York, someone tries to set off a bomb in Times Square, and life goes on a couple hours later. In Pittsburgh, they divert the marathon after finding a microwave with some noodles inside. [WTAE]
