Don't remember it at all. Sad  I haven't been back in 13 years.

I mostly hung out on the North Side anyway.  Wasn't Clive a South Sider?

And he lived to tell about it?  If I'm running in Homewood it's going to be a sprint.  Had a near death experience there in the late 1990's - came face to face with about a dozen Crips in an alley.  At least I think they were Crips.  All of them wearing blue bandanas to the hilt and certainly looked like gang members.

I'm inspecting water damage at this old lady's house.  It's so bad that her back door is swelled shut and will not budge.  I need to see the rear exterior of the house to see where it's coming in.  Since it's a row house, the only way to see the back was walk to the end of the block, around the corner and down the back alley.  No kidding at all when I say there were spent casings on the sidewalk.  She and I turn down the alley and there these guys were, looking like they just waiting for someone to kill.  There just glaring and looking put out that this old lady and I are infringing on their space.  I'm there in my pleated dockers, oxford shirt, tie and loafers.  Thank God I didn't have on a red tie that day. They'd have probably shot me on the spot. Then this old lady I'm with starts absolutely berating these guys for hanging around the alley all day, and didn't they have anything better to do, and if she was their mother she'd straighten them out, etc.  I'm thinking, "Lady, would you PLEASE shut up while I still have my life?"

My eyes were to the ground the whole time.  No way I was making eye contact with any of these guys.  They must've known the old lady from the neighborhood, because none of them said a word in response, and they didn't look like a group that would tolerate much crap from anybody.

Sorry for the tangent.  I saw "running in Homewood" and it all came back to me.

I'm from very near the Century III Mall area.  And for the record, I'm pretty sure it was Homewood AND Brushton.

I can remember a good number of Pittsburgh icons, but some of them are fuzzy images (e.g. I can't remember the brand of the beer sign you see on your left as you leave town over the Liberty Bridge -- Budweiser? -- or the name of the building whose top lights are color-coded to the weather).

Wake me when something like the Incline goes.  THAT'S an icon.
