The only way it looks like the Sprint Center is b/c it has a glass exterior....

It looks like the Sprint Center with a square block sticking out of the side. Way to be unique Pittsburgh.

I think they already did.  Not even God can stand in Pittsburgh's way.

From the renderings, it's clear that the church is staying.

Then, I must be thinking of another building that they had to tear down to make room for the Sprint Center Pittsburgh Arena.

Oh the irony!  They use us for leverage and then we design their new arena.  Too bad we couldn't persuade them to select J.E. Dunn to build it -- that would have been a laugh.

We'll prob get asked to prostrate ourselves again so the bill moves out of the StateHouse.

Shouldn't we at least get paid for whoring ourselves out?  A whore gets paid, a slut doesn't.  I'd guess we're the latter.

Yep they used KC to get a new arena and it is now in the hands of the state legislature to decide if the arena is going to be built. From the looks of it, Pittsburgh might be losing the Pens after all, if the measure doesn't pass.
