Subtle enjoyment from this post...thanks! :lol:

Thanks all, appreciate it lots!

+ I did make it out to Mt. Pleasant/New Stanton
- The car we came down in (me and 3 players) broke down on the Schuykill (sp?) Expressway on the way there
+ It broke down right at an exit, with a gas station right at it and an Enterprise 2 miles away (they did come pick us up, note: the person that picks you up is not supposed to/allowed to accept a tip, in case you were wondering...I offered/asked because I'm an idiot like that...)

- This town isn't quite outside of that old "Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west, Kentucky in the middle" stereotype/whatever
+ Pizza shops sell beer as a result
- Fast food places are every 30 feet (plus for some), they all take forever vs. what I'm used to

- Did not get to go to a Penguins game while there
+ Will count the money saved here as specifically earmarked for a playoff game instead
- A last minute re-scheduling would have opened up the time to go to the Florida game on Friday night, but it was too late to adjust plans...bleh

+ Not shouted at or harassed for wearing my Penguins coat everywhere
+ Pens game was on at the rink, even talked to a couple of Pens fans while watching
- One of them thought Tyler Kennedy should be given a shot on the second line, but otherwise was actually a pretty cool guy

+ My team played exceptional hockey throughout
- The team from Colorado is a bunch of scumbags, they got what they deserved...
+ Won a National Championship on my birthday!

you must tell me what pizza shop you ate at or bought beer from. I'm assuming Dominic's

Not sure the name. I know there was a Pizza Hut that sold six packs, this place was right in the conglomerate of Days Inn, McDonald's, Sheetz, Eat N' Park, and all that noise right off of 70...I thought it was a white shack that just said "Pizza" on the sign...I think it was next to a Subway?

We go in early Saturday afternoon...

My goalie goes, "Yeah, can I get a plain slice?"
Unsightly woman behind the counter: "We don't serve pizza on the weekends..."
I chuckle and go over to the refrigerator section, which normally would house Gatorade, water, soda, etc. but it's all just individual beers...looked like some local stuff in there, plus Leinenkugel's and what not...

Goalie: "Do you have any water?"
Woman: "No."
Goalie: "Sweet."

I turned around from looking over the beers and go, "can I buy individually or do you need to make a six pack?" - she said I could buy individually, so I grabbed one for like $2.50 and we got out of there...

It seems like most establishments serve beer in that area...or are drive-thrus...or both...

Having lived in New Brunswick, NJ and Philadelphia for the last decade or so of my life...this place was quite a difference to say the least... :lol:

I felt like I was just getting ****** with out there sometimes...the no-weekend pizza place, we went to a Dunkin Donuts, I asked for a sausage, egg and cheese on a plain bagel...after at least 15 minutes I get it, the top half of the bagel is plain, the bottom half appeared to be "everything" ...so...

My defensemen orders a bagel with cream cheese, that also takes a fair amount of time and there was no cream cheese on it, they just gave you a thing of cream cheese...I've never been to a DD's that didn't do it for you...

The rink is down this windy driveway that is apparently a two-way street also...I wonder what place lost out on getting that rink, like who else submitted a proposal to get that rink built and someone went, "no, put it out here...near a place called "Shaker's Urgent Care" which looks like an apartment complex that changed its mind and became a hospital? and a sign that says "J&L Dump Bodies" with an arrow to what I can only assume is a shallow grave..."

And I don't mean anything of meaning behind this, but I've never seen 6 white people working at a Dunkin Donuts before...the previous record for me is 2. :lol:

It would take some adjustment for me to live out there, mac...God bless ya...

I will say, that I would take a Sheetz out here in the east...it's like a WaWa on steroids kind of...one of my mule-ish type forwards dropped like $40 on food there twice in a weekend...and that's without him taking my dare to try the "gas station sushi" that they offered...I liked that place though, wouldn't mind having one in Philly...

J&L Dump Bodies, right next to Owen McGill Farm Equipment and across the street from Smouse's Vans Trucks and Trailers. tehehe.

You were in the metro area, too. The driveway to the rink wasn't that bad, but then they built that office building in front of it and they had to change it, IIRC.
