What a joke.
That's why I was beyond infuriated when the whole David Wright not picking Pedro Alvarez of the Pirates thing became this angry mob scene in Pittsburgh with the announcers basically passive aggresively telling the fans to boo Wright.

The Steelers (who I don't hate at all) and Penguins basically have their respective leagues kiss their behinds, so goodness forbid Pittsburgh doesn't get what they want. That city more than any other play's up being blue collar to the point of mockery and brats.

I would never hate a city, I just don't like how there's this perception of Pittsburgh being "the right kind of city" and "oh we're so much better than you because we're so blue collar."
