    Ethan,
    What is your basis for this statement: “there were few Pirates and Steeler fans who truly loved Three Rivers Stadium’s design during its 30-year existence”. I know many people who liked Three Rivers Stadium (myself included). Please don’t make stuff up that you don’t know anything about. Oops, that’s right, you’re a social media editor so you know everything. What kind of a job is “social media editor” anyway? how do you edit stuff that is just made up and has no basis in fact?

      Hey Ray,

      I enjoyed Three Rivers Stadium, too, and spent many of my childhood summer nights there. I look back on the experience fondly.

      But I think you’d agree that the majority of Pittsburgh fans found its design bland and its character lacking. Not exactly a loving relationship. You just used the word “liked,” not “loved,” which proves my point.

      Thanks for writing.

    Hi Ethan,

    I am looking for a photo to purchase and display in our office. The actual photo is of a complete Three Rivers Stadium with the city in the background. I found it on the site HMDB.org, but have not been able to get a hold of anyone there. The credit below it on the site is: Harry S. Coughanour, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, circa 1970. Do you have any idea of where I might be able to buy a copy of this? (I can email you a copy of this photo…)

    The credit printed on the photo is the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania. Our Pittsburgh office is now located roughly on the old stadium site. We love this shot and it would be perfect for the office. Any help that you could provide me would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, marty
