Shittsburgh: Sewer Pipe Under PNC Park Breaks

A sewer pipe under PNC Park clogged today and crews had to dig up the outfield to get in there and clean the shit out (quite literally).

WPXI reports the clog was fixed at around 2 p.m.

Team officials said the field will be repaired by the time the Pirates return home on Monday. They also noted that the outfield in Pittsburgh has been covered by shit for nearly two decades now, so the incident shouldn’t have any effect on the game.

    That park is so much nicer than your ugly piece of shit park will ever be. Go ahead and hate on Pittsburgh, but they set the standard in your state for baseball venues.

    In all seriousness, McCutchen is better than anything we are putting out there anymore.

    Unfortunately, FOX – the same network that aired an hour’s worth of Brits receiving the Champions League trophy yesterday – pissed down its leg and didn’t show us any of Pat Burrell’s retirement ceremony.

    They must shift this pipe to another place or fix it totally to ensure that this will not happen again.
