Not surprised he was 86. He was old 25 years ago when we would go out for pizza.

My parents used to go to Vincent's back in the 50s. I remember when I was a little kid watching Vincent throw pies with that butt in the corner of his mouth. I had been gone from the Burgh for 50 years except the occasional biztrip and on a trip a year ago November I looked Vincent's up and went back. The joint and the pie was just as I had remembered it. What a man. What a pie. What memories.

Thank you Vincent. Rest in peace!!

That is the blessed truth, Indo.

That picture makes me hungry.

We would go out there during the winter and I'd ride back with the pizza on my lap. I could feel the heat through the cardboard, the paper, my coat, and my jeans. So much cheese on those babies it was like soup.

Wow!!! Brings back memories. I have not had a Vincents Pizza in over 25 years. That place was right over the hill from me, the one in Forest Hills. Now I want a pie.
