Default Super Bowl Parade: Not Happening

Due to a cost of over $45,000 , The city of Pittsburgh will not hold a parade if the Steelers were to win.

A quarter of a million people came down for the last one. Are you trying to tell me, you couldn't get a quarter million people to pay $1 for the parade?

Now I know I am getting a little ahead of myself, but come on!

Does someone want to help me set up a fund to have this parade?

Maybe they should have some sort of donation somewhere for it.

I read on KDKA.com last night that due to issues with public saefty it might be cancelled. This is a real bummer cause I was planning on comming up if we won. I hope they have some kinda rally and let us show our support for our boys.

Parades are for newbies.

When is East-side Rendell up for reelection? The state should have no problem ponying up the money to help the city. Any whining will just be viewed as sour grapes.

Steelers could bus back to Pittsburgh and they'd have triple the crowd that saw off the Cards in Phoenix in every major metropolitan area on the way back to Pittsburgh.

That would definitely be ashamed if the city of Pittsburgh does not have a victory parade. I agree with the pay $1 per person and they would definitely more than pay for itself... kind of a joke if the city doesnt hold it for their home team..

How about just holding the parade and not inviting any cops? That should save the bulk of the cost.

Also, as the parade moves through town, they should have people on the floats throwing guns into the street.
