Black and gold is what they choose to wear – from babies with bottles to grandmas who holler. Game day colors are always the same in Pittsburgh, no matter the season, no matter the team. The city is unique in that way – one of the only in the country where all major league teams sport the same colors. Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers, or Penguins fans all look the same, inside and out. Outside they wear yellow shirts, black hats, and any combination of black and gold they can get their hands on. Inside, they bleed black and gold.
The city’s shield – which predates the teams by a few hundred years, set the standard.
The city’s anthem continued that theme.
But apparently, some people don’t honor and respect us and our colors choices. The Three Sisters Bridges, those iconic 6th, 7th, and 9th street wonders, are up for a paint job. Their signature Pittsburgh Yellow color has dimmed, so the time has come to brighten them up. Some jokesters in the county think that a color other than yellow is an option. So now, it’s up to you to save the day and keep the city shining in all it’s gold-toned glory.
Vote to make it happen.
As every Pittsburgher knows, anything else would be wrong.
