Tjardus Greidanus is the cinematic savant that directed The Final Sacrifice. I just checked his IMDB page to see what, if anything he's done since. Apparently he just shot a movie in Pittsburgh recently. So, for all of you yinzers raving about The Dark Knight Rises being filmed in Pittsburgh, why haven't we heard a peep about "A New York Heartbeat"? Shame on all of you.

Winterhawk tickets are relatively inexpensive, especially if you're used to paying NHL prices.
Pretty sure that's the bar these dudes were talking about! Must be a good place. And yeah, I plan on going to a handful of games next season, great to hear that they're relatively cheap
