A few weeks ago, in the thick of studying for finals, D's good friend from high school was randomly in town with his family to go to a Pirates game. They'd gotten good seats for a great price and called to see if we wanted in on the action. Since we were both itching for a break (see also: finals) we jumped at the chance. Which is how, without any planning, I crossed another thing off two different lists (Life List and Give Pittsburgh a Chance List) and went to a Pittsburgh Pirates game.
We'd heard over and over that while the Pirates weren't the best team in the league, the stadium was at the top of the list. It is pretty nice, especially when compared to the only other baseball stadium I've been to, Wrigley Field. It's just a little newer--Wrigley was built in 1914 and I think PNC Park opened in 2001.
