    Default Lemieux Statue?

    Is the Lemieux statue still going to be unveiled outside of CEC on Monday? I haven't been hearing anything about it, or maybe it's just getting lost in all the Winter Classic hype.

    The statue gets unveiled tomorrow at noon. I'll be popping along with the camera. Anyone else going?

    DK on Twitter gave a YouTube link to the goal that the statue was based on.

    I can't post the link myself right now because I'm on the crapper.

    Happy hunting.

    Firewaters?

    The only Firewaters that I know of is the one done next to PNC Park that closed. Is there another?

    Firewaters was closed last year! I couldn't believe that building wasn't in use in that location. I think something is supposed to open in there for this Pirate season.

    Yeah I know. It's such a great location. Gotta figure something will go in there, but I bet the rent is ridiculous. The rent there is why, among other reasons, Hi-Tops had to close. I heard at one point their rent was around $30K/month.

    Firewaters was a dump. Not that I'm opposed to a dump mind you, but it just wasn't set up well and wasn't ran right. The right place there will do really well.

    Man that statue is ugly. Looks like a couple bums fighting over a spam slice...

    I don't mind the notion that there are "other players" as part of the statue. I do think though that they should've made those opposing players smaller in stature so that Lemieuz stood out high and above them, as the statue should be and symbolize.

    The MJ statue in Chicago is like this and does it perfectly.

    I think this is the first time I've ever disliked a statue put up to honor a great athlete. Didn't think that was even possible.

    That's it??? Which one is Mario? Just going by this picture, I'm also disappointed. I agree with Vandelay about the Jordan statue. I've seen it personally and it is impressive, just as the Clemente, Stargell and Mazeroski statues are.

    POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS SHOULD BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!
