Let's go back several years ago. My friend, his wife and my wife got tickets, had a free place to stay and headed to the Burgh to see the Reds play the Pirates. We all wore Reds gear. My wife got a beer dumped on her when she stood up and applauded a Reds homerun and we were constantly told to shut up and go home.
Fast forward to 1990 during the NLCS. Two guys in Steeler shirts confronted me in a restroom about my Reds cap. Luckily, a cop walks in and breaks it up.
I don't go there anymore. When my son was at WVU, he attended some games, but they were so pitiful, he paid $8 to get in and the place was deserted. They only like winners.
