Poll: Top 5 Dark Knight Memories in Batburgh

Thank you Batman! From Boring Pittsburgh
This is what the ad should have looked like

Like Batman returning to the world of Bruce Wayne, Pittsburgh has removed the Gotham City mask and life is back to normal. City roads have been reopened, the fake snow has been carried to the landfills, and Haddad’s trucks are back at the base. In other words, the Burgh is back to being boring for the time being.

Dear Mr. Christopher Nolan, thank you for making this the most exciting summer in Pittsburgh and for not being a jagoff about our incessant urge to share spy shots with Batman fans around the world.

1. When rumors spread that Batman was going to blow up the Civic Arena

Batman Dark Knight will blow up the Civic Arena on film?
Batman Dark Knight will blow up the Civic Arena on film?

Batman ultimately didn’t get to blow up the Civic Arena. Our guess is that the rumors were mistakenly started by the film critic due to the production crew needing to pull off a sporting event with explosions – while at the same time the fate of the arena was up in the air. Do you wish the Dark Knight would have blown up the Igloo before bouncing out of the Burgh? Submit your vote below:

    Is the full page thank you note from Christ Nolan still in the PG or was that a one day affair? It was not in my newspaper yesterday, nor today. I. Must. Have. That. Framed. Thanks.

  • Abe

    I like when the Batmobile got stuck in a pothole lmfao

  • Jon

    I still think they really were trying to blow up the civic arena for the film but it wouldn’t have gone over smoothly with the interest groups working so hard to keep the structure around for historical reasons. In other words, the rumor didn’t come out of thin air.

  • Pete

    Is that the best video you could come up with for the day at Heinz? I saw one with Hines Ward on the batmobile. You should post that.
