At least in Pittsburgh, anyway. So you wanna schedule a wedding, a party, or even a church fund-raiser this fall? Better not do it at a time when the Steelers are playing, since they will monopolize the interests of virtually everyone in Western Pennsylvania, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Amazing, ain't it?
By the way, the 2008 NFL schedule came out five days ago, and while I try to avoid thinking too much about football in April, it's worth pointing out what's on the slate for Sept. 21: Steelers at Eagles, the closest thing Pennsylvania has to a statewide steel-cage match. Or something.
