That's a low blow
What's surprising about this article is not that yet another newspaper sent a reporter to write a stranger-in-a-strange-land article about spending time in a rival sports team's hometown, but that it contains a reference to"Joe Versus the Volcano":
Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck warned me about Pittsburgh. He filmed a soup commercial in Pittsburgh this summer, said it reminded him of the first five minutes of "Joe Versus The Volcano."
In case you've never seen the movie, that is not a compliment.
