"Take Me Out to the Ball Game.."

As mid-westerners, you're generally regarded as two things: 1) You're a Meat and Potatoes kind of guy and 2) You enjoy your sports. Well the former may not be true, but latter certainly is. So, on our way to the bi-annual family reunion the family (Mom, Dad, Kevin and myself) headed off to PNC Park in downtown Pittsburgh for a night game against the Padres. The park is simply amazing. With a beautiful skyline, intimate seating and an all around embracement of the fact that they are the "Pirates" -- in my opinion, PNC Park provides the ambiance of a minor league ball park with big league teams and ranks up there as one of the best parks in the country. If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself. Oh, and tickets aren't too expensive either...bonus!

Great Skyline view of downtown Pittsburgh.
(They close that bridge on game days so people can walk across--how cool is that?)

Great scoreboard.
