Default Re: A thought on the Pens and Buco's

Building a new arena is a must...for many reasons....

Too many people think of this as a "Penguins only" thing....thats wrong...

Did you know the NCAA tournament announced it will not come back to Pittsburgh because of the arena?

Do you know that many of the biggest music artists in the world will no longer book Pittsburgh because of the arena?

The arena is 45 years old..and needs replaced...the Pens play there 42 nights a year...but there are hundreds of other events held there...and its a representation of the city...a new arena would do more for the city of Pittsburgh than Heinz field or PNC park ever will.

That being said...hockey has priced its self way out of this universe...I remember getting good seats to Pens games for 15-17 bucks..those seats now run 50-70 bucks. PNC park is unbelievable..and still somewhat affordable. Whether the Buccos stink or not..a summer evening at PNC Park is extremely enjoyable.

yes..we can support 3 teams..we've proven it....
