Fun Fact of the day


Pittsburgh is the only city where all three major sports teams share the same colors.

Black and gold are beloved colors in Pittsburgh, especially for sports fans who proudly wear them whether they're rooting for the Steelers (NFL), the Penguins (NHL), or the Pirates (MLB). According to The Witchita Eagle, the inspiration for the choice of color is "pretty simple—they are the colors of Pittsburgh's flag, which is based on the coat of arms of William Pitt, the 18th-century British prime minister for whom the city is named."
