Pittsburgh: The Premiere Sports Mecca (video)
Guide to the Game is a new sports show that profiles America’s sports towns. We’re pretty sure the guys are from Buffalo, which would explain why it was the featured town in the first episode. It didn’t take them long to make it down to the City of Champions for episode 2.
G2G did a great job. It was actually better than any Pittsburgh themed show on the Food Network. But like every video or article that explores the Steel City, G2G stayed within the boundaries of so-called Pittsburgh tradition. It makes us wonder if we will ever see similar showcases of our city that don’t include the same old venues. Pittsburgh food is evolving beyond french fries and greasy spoons, but how is anyone supposed to know if all we ever show the world are the same 5 artery clogging grease pits? Then again, this is a show about sports fans. One thing we know for sure is that fans from other towns are going to be envious (more than they already are) after they watch this segment. So watch as Mike D. takes you on a tour of the Burgh… G2G style.
