Those Crazy, Beer-Gulping Hockey Fans...

Recycling at stadium hardly seems a waste

...Did the hockey crowd outdrink the football crowd?

"Yes,'' said Dave Mazza, the PRC regional director who worked the lots all four games. "We're estimating 4,000 to 5,000 pounds of stuff at the Winter Classic.''

There are many ways to look at this. Some will be aghast at the consumption rate. Not a few Penguins fans will be swelling their new souvenir hockey sweaters with pride. Spoilsports will point out that a Penguins fan and a Steelers fan are often one and the same organism...

   6.  St. Louis
   7.  San Antonio
   8.  Lubbock, Texas
   9.  Tucson
  10.  Bakersfield, Calif.

            "Least drunk" cities:

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

And people still ask me why I disliked my time in Boston so much!
