Pittsburgh Trip Number Uno

PICTOBLOG PICTOBLOG PICTOBLOG


What is this magical land you call Pittburgh? I didn't get mugged ONCE on my way to the park!


Front row seats so close I could spit on the warning track. Which I did - Look Mom! Just like a REAL baseball player!


"Nope, no pit stains."


Nothing funny here - just ridiculously good photography skills. You still think my Chocolate is a girl's phone? Yes? Damnit.


Guy in decent clothes picks up a cardboard box, puts it over his head and lays down in the middle of a crowded parking lot. I tried to get a closeup picture but he was screaming at the top of his lungs inside the box so I kept my distance. The entire adventure made me homesick for Cleveland and excited to get back to all of my favorite homeless guys on my block.


Highlight of the Trip:

(Little kid comes up to my roommate and I who are both wearing cowboy boots (more on that in a later post))

Little Kid: Are you guys cowboys?

Roommate: We sure are.

Little Kid: You don't talk like cowboys!

Roommate: Well, Partner...

Little Kid: Don't call me partner.

Ahhh, the wit of those little kids.

Kids nowdays are way too smart for their own good and use that smartness to be smartasses.

I often lay down in the middle of a parking lot to scream...box is optional.

I haven't been to one single baseball game this year. And I'm living in a town where, at times, both teams were in first place. What's my problem. I miss baseball. And raging lunatics in parking lots.

LOL -- it's sort of like a scene from "Midnight Cowboy" if it were remade for Nickelodeon.

thanks for taking a picture of the guy with the cardboard box over his head. my friend got drunk last night and we couldnt figure out where he went.

I totally would have karate chopped that kid.

Oh come on like you've never picked up a box, put in your head, fell down and started screaming? I mean what do you do for fun?

That box looks comy.

Not gonna lie.

Awww the Flats. How I miss them. ~sighs~

I once saw a woman screaming at noone and hitting herself silly on Lorain Ave. Good times.

That kid punked you! You should've known - kids in Pittsburgh are gangsta.
