It was very unorganized, as far as the police and city goes. No police directing traffic, We waited for iver one hour, after coming over the Fort Pitt Brige, just to move thirty feet. The light would turn green and nobody would move.

But as far as the parade goes, it was awesome to be within five feet of Jerome hugging the trophy. And to see Hines on top of his new MVP ride was great,

Cowher never looked happier! Couldn`t help but feel good for him!

One question. My Rooney rode in a 70`s Caprice Classic Conv. Mint shape. Was this a car that his father may have ridden in a parade before???

Back to the cops, it was a free for all on the parade route, even the police motorcycles couldn`t get down the parade route. It was nice to be able to shake the hands of the players, or get a high five, but get a little control!

Yeah where I was had no gates or anything. It was fun but pretty nuts.

I thought it was just amazing....everything I expected and more. The were giving autographs, talking, it was great.....got a little crazy towards the end where Hines and the bus were but no problem.....The prizes on merchandise was pretty good for the most part.....I cant wait to do it again....it was great....started out at the beginning of their season at training camp and ended at the parade.....my brother drives crazy but we made it..............
