I excused myself for interrupting and asked him what part of Pittsburgh he was from... the answer?

Was his name Arnold?

Prior to it becoming a Juggalo staple, was Faygo previously a western PA thing? I remember having like 6 different varieties of Faygo growing up, and it definitely seemed like a white-trashy style drink.

It was just cheap pop before walmart's "Great Value" brand took off. I remember going to the IGA a few blocks down the road and there being just tons of loose cans in a buggy, and digging through it for a blue and red can: cherry cola.

I'm more into Yinzer food like Pierogies and *pop*. I also say gumband. But no IC Light never. That is abhorrent.

I had a friend do a yinzery thing to me the other day. We had to go to the a mall and the dude decided to wear sweatpants. Never been so embarrassed in my life. It's one thing for a hot, slim, babe to wear tight sweatpants, but for a dude to wear these bags over his legs sucked. I offered to buy him pants but he didn't want any.

conversely, there is little worse than running into someone that is a stiller fan outside of the pittsburgh area, but they have no pittsburgh ties. liking the stillers does not make us kindred souls.

as an aside, a friend of a friend was a pittsburgh native living in seattle and met her now-husband (also a pittsburgh native) at a stiller bar in seattle during a game. its hard to admit that isnt kind of cute.
