They couldn’t win the Super Bowl this year, but by golly the city of Pittsburgh is getting ready to celebrate Hines Ward’s Dancing With the Stars title. Yeah… you read that right. Pittsburgh will honor Ward and his dance partner, Kym Johnson, in a rally that will be held in front of the City-County Building.
Like any Pittsbugh rally, fans will be waving yellow towels for no apparent reason.
Fans are encouraged to wear black and gold and bring Terrible Towels to the rally.
“City residents and the Steelers Nation have contacted my office asking for the city to properly thank our hometown hero for once-again shining the spotlight on Pittsburgh,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said.
By gold they mean yellow.
In the coming weeks, Pittsburgh will be celebrating Sidney Crosby’s injury recovery with a parade and statue unveiling.
