Intro as a media outlet at the parade talking about how exciting it was to fully participate in the parade from giving things away to interviews with the Pittsburgh royalty.
St. Patrick himself dishes on the history of St. Patrick and gives a quick blessing for the Irish in this special day.
We get the privilege to talk it up with Jim Rooney about the special first of honoring Dan Rooney on parade day for all of his contributions to Pittsburgh. He dishes on his dad’s pilot days and a unique conversation with another known Irish figure.
Governor Tom Wolf is elated that John and Rachael pronounce Lancaster the correct way. The Governor boasts of Pennsylvania growth, corrects Pittsburghese and gives a quick pregame glimpse in the life of the governor before he gets pulled away for another important interview.
Cousins Peggy and Sean talk about 28 and seven years of celebrating Irish traditions since Peggy is the official leprechaun for Mayor Bill Peduto and Sean is more than a sidekick! He discusses not letting his grandmother get arrested years past!
Peggy and Sean stick around and chat with the mayor about why this parade is above the others Pittsburgh hosts, what Sean eats for St. Paddy’s Day, Mayor Peduto’s pregame ritual and Peggy’s outlandish outfit as the mayor’s lead leprechaun.
Femme Frugality is riding 0n the float with the other cast of jagoff characters and hits us with some multiple choice questions about Ireland vs USA. John wins the q&a but we all win thanks to Femme’s informative blogging about Pittsburgh’s economical stature.
Cousin Lisa leaves the trailer bull pen of jag offs and better explains the concept of Flat Lisa who basically is an icon who pops up anywhere to give out discounts for Total Sports Enterprises in store and online.
