650,000 of us Pittsburghers managed to skip out on work long enough to attend today’s Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Victory Parade. Just like last year, I escaped from work with some coworkers, and just like last year, we squeezed in at the railing of the parking garage at Smithfield and the Blvd of the Allies.
I got some decent pictures, actually, and it was great to get out of work for a while. I’d like to think that in this picture in particular, Sidney Crosby is all, “Hey gurrrl… wanna come over to my place for a pool party later?” (Nevermind his long-term girlfriend.)
Maybe next year when we three-peat as Stanley Cup champs, my coworkers and I will get there earlier so we can get some ground-level seats. Then again, why break with tradition? Let’s go Pens in 2018! 🙂
