Another thing that I find so humorous is the news. I'm not a religious news watcher, it's too depressing, but every once in a while we catch the first few minutes of a broadcast. The other night we were watching the Penguins game and then the news started. The first report was about the Penguins game which they had won here in Pittsburgh at Mellon Arena. There was some brouhaha about the fact that the next game wasn't going to be broadcast on a big screen outside Mellon Arena. The woman reporting the story signed off by saying "this is so and so outside Heinz Field, back to you in the studio." I said to myself, wait, what? Heinz Field? Heinz Field is where the Steelers and the Pitt Panthers play FOOTBALL. FOOTBALL, not hockey. But did they just figure that since some kind of sporting activity happens there it's good enough? It's not the first time I've noticed that. Does the story just look more official if you're standing outside... somewhere? Awesome. This is Chelsea Worth reporting live from somewhere near my couch, back to you.
