Sweet mother of-- Look at all those cargo shorts! I don't think I've ever seen so many cargo shorts in my life. It's like a cargo short convention! All those negative stigmas.
Before I get into this, I just want to apologize ahead of time if you happen to be from Western Pennsylvania: Hopefully it's not your fault you live in the arm pit of America, a place Sienna Miller and every Eagles fan on the other side of the turnpike affectionately calls "shitsburg." But let's be honest: Philly may be full of loudmouth d-bags, but every Pennsylvanian knows that once you drive west of, say, Carlise, on the Turnpike, you're entering serious "yinz ain't from around here" country. Let's be honest: There's probably a good reason Andy Warhol left and Mac Miller lives in Los Angeles. How much Iron City beer does one have to drink to 1.) taste good, 2.) make french fries on a sandwich are actually digestable, and 3). get you through the 300+ cloudy days a year? What is wrong with you people?!?!?!
I kid. Learn to take a joke, Pittsburgh.
Anyway, on Saturday Kenny Chesney played a concert at the Roman Coliseum of the Ohio River Valley, Heinz Field, and it turned into a bit of a sh*t show. Who knew Froggy 98's listeners were such degenerates? Via:
Pittsburghers are responding to the mess left behind in parking lots following the Kenny Chesney concert Saturday at Heinz Field. Crews began cleaning the Heinz Field parking lots early Sunday morning, and most were cleared in time for the Monday morning commute.
But in light of the piles of garbage, empty beer bottles and even furniture, some are calling for a ban of future Chesney concerts. A “Ban Kenny Chesney from Pittsburgh” Facebook page has been created.
According to Allegheny County Emergency Services, 30 people were taken to the hospital, 150 patients were seen by EMS at the scene, and five arrests were made throughout the day. Over 100 police officers and 43 paramedics were working at the event.
Turns out there was some serious, serious tailgating going down:
“The mess is not country. Country people take care of their messes. It's like city folks going to something and taking their city trash with them,” said Jim Bennett.
Donna M. Giel said, “They are local young people there just for the party. They show up early in the morning, party all day and then slowly trickle out once the concert starts. This phenomenon has grown each year and seems exclusive to Pittsburgh.”
In another Facebook post, Whitney Hodgson said, “If this was done at Wiz Khalifa there would be hell to pay and racial slurs thrown left and right. This is beyond ridiculous. It's disgusting. It's trashy. And it's pathetic."
Finally, the coup de grace: This video of a massive white trash brawl outside the Kenny Chesney show. Classy stuff. ALL. THOSE. CARGO. SHORTS. No wonder there's a negative stigma.
