Another Love Fest for Pittsburgh...Penguin Victory Parade Celebrates the Stanley Cup

Well here it is ...the largest  event in Pittsburgh history.  The estimate of 375,000 people crowded the Pittsburgh Streets  to watch the Victory Parade after a 17 year old wait for the return of the Stanley Cup.

Two Victory parades in four months...Pittsburgh truly is the City of Champions.

Sidney Crosby in an interview remarked " City of Champions again....better than...Hockey town"

As far as the eye could see fans celebrated and the mutual love between fan and player was obvious.

Pittsburghers  love their Penguins and the Penguins claim to have  the best fans in the world. Fans traveled hours and miles to be part of the celebration.

Emotions ran high and excitement hit an all time high when Maxime Talbot was the first to jump out of the car and run along the edge of the crowd giving everyone a high five..what a thrill for the fans.

Bill Guerin's   87 year old  grandmother traveled from New Jersey to be part of this victorious day along with fans from across the country.

Fans were interviewed from  Nova Scotia Canada.

One women  drove   20 hours  from Florida to be part of history.

Indeed the excitement was unmatched . It was a great day in Pittsburg

Thanks for the comment I lost the video and had to edit it in again.  Hope you had a chance to see it.  It was a great day for Pittsburgh. The Steeler and the Pen win, I hope will inspire the Pirates.
