Frozen Four hubbub, bub. (NHR)

Postby llipgh2 on Thu Apr 11, 2013 2:16 pm

Town is packed with Frozen Four folks. Lots of sightseeing tourists, with jerseys from a lot of different schools.

My office is right beside the Omni William Penn, media and fans checking in all day. Been asked a number of times today (coming into work, walking to the Y and back from the Y) where:

Is the Consol?
Is Six Penn?
Is PNC Park/Heinz Field
Is a good place to eat?
Is the casino?

The second question I found interesting, but didn't bother to ask why they wanted to know where Six Penn was. I found out when I went powerwalking at lunch.

Apparently Six Penn is the UMASS-Lowell Alumni headquarters for the Frozen Four. Place has "Talons Association" banners and UMASS Lowell flags everywhere.

Also, the Ducky Tour boats quacked at me and the other runners/walkers on the Riverwalk.

I love when Pittsburgh is jumping like this. Goofy hometown pride, perhaps. But it's just great when folks are in town marvel at things we all take for granted.
