Pittsburgh has arguably the best [[UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueBaseball pro baseball]] stadium in the country, which houses the Pirates. Its [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague pro football]] team, the Steelers, have more SuperBowl trophies than any other and was tied with [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex Dallas]] and UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}in having the most UsefulNotes/SuperBowl trips until New England surpassed them all in 2016. They also have a longstanding rivalry with UsefulNotes/{{Cleveland}} (against whom they have a lot of [[CurbStompBattle Curbstomp Victories]]). [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague The Penguins]] are most known for [[SpotlightStealingSquad Sidney Crosby]], who you've probably heard of, along with his rival Alex Ovechkin even if you don't watch hockey. Pittsburgh has no [[NationalBasketballAssociation pro basketball]] team, which is another interesting play on Cleveland, which lacks a pro hockey team. All three of Pittsburgh's major league teams--and more than a few minor league clubs--wear [[ColorMotif black]] [[MemeticMutation and]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gdv3ynK55w yellow]], the colors on the city flag (known officially and by every Pittsburgher ever as "black and '''[[InsistentTerminology gold]]'''").

* {{Furry Fandom}}: The world's largest Furry convention, Anthrocon, has called Pittsburgh home since 2006. While the convention is not promoted as a public event (though anyone can buy a membership to gain attendance), the event draws many residents and their children to the bars and restaurants around the convention center to go "Furry Watching". Pittsburghers will also begrudgingly admit that Anthrocon is one of the few interesting events to happen at the convention center in a given year (But hey, who knows what the attendees from the ''Society of Bridge Engineers Conference'' get up to behind closed doors.) When the convention finally promoted an event for the public to attend, [[http://www.anthrocon.org/node/28359/anthrocon-2015-wrapup 5,000 people]] turned up.
