A Pittsburgh Original? - 11-25-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

The sales of the Terrible Towel benefit Allegheny Valley School, a very worthwhile cause. But how on Earth can this exist?

A Terrible Towel with the Washington Capitals' logo on it? Seriously?

The Terrible Towel is Pittsburgh. Long ago it went beyond being a Steelers icon and became a Pittsburgh icon.

Would there ever be a Browns or Ravens logo on it? Of course not. So why is it acceptable to plaster a Capitals logo on it?

If you're any sort of true Pittsburgh fan, you'll boycott this abomination. Heck, if you're a Capitals fan, you will too.

There are plenty of regular Terrible Towels available at just about any retailer in town. And sales from those will benefit the Allegheny Valley School. Go ahead and buy them and avoid this train wreck all together.
