I seem to have been at every one of these games in recent years, and except for drunks wandering around, it really isn't that bad. I'll leave a little earlier, but I come in on 885 and there never seems to be that much of an issue since the parade goes away from the arena and starts at 10am.

Basically. Just added the green food coloring to the beer and random dudes in skirts with bagpipes

Didn't take us any longer than usual. Traffic is light by the arena

Hit the veterans bridge at noon and there was almost zero traffic. Even less than normal. Parked at the USX building. It was a little more crowded than usual but not horrible.

Incredibly easy. 20 minutes in from Allison Park, down 28, vets bridge, parked at my garage by bny Mellon.

Left at 9 am, on Grant street by 9:30.

Parade was good. Freaking colder than a Hillary Clinton smile, but fun.

Traveling today and ended up downtown around 1:45. Big mistake. Was trying to get to 376 East and everything was closed off including Grant & Blvd of the Allies. Took about an hour to get back on track.

Taking the T from the Northside was great.
What is up with guys wearing shorts on a morning like it was today. A the parade, The South Fayette HS band is always a treat to hear and watch.
I 'm guessing last year's 80 + temp led to it being extra wild. today, not so much.
First time , for a long time, the pens won on a parade day. :!:

I hit some traffic on my way in from crashing at a friends house in squirrell hill, granted I missed the first exit so Its my own damn fault for that, but as long as I've been coming up to games, the traffic isnt as bad its made out to be. IT ACTUALLY MOVES!
