What Pittsburgh River Are You?
Pull up a parking chair… it’s time for Uncle Jerry’s Points of Interest
So there I was, taking the Clipper across to a Stillers game last fall, and I had this thought: If I were a river in the great confluence of da Burgh, which one would I be? I think it’s blasphemous to think that I could only be one. 'Cause like, the three major sports teams in this tahn, it's hard to pick your favorite... unless you narrow it dahn to the two doin' all the winnin' - still, tough choice.
The Ohi-a, The Allegheny and The Mon are like the tripod of Western Pennsylvania! If you take one away, it’s like the dahn-fall of western civilization! They each have a personality based on the towns that hug their banks like Brussel sprouts on a stock.
