Marty McFly arrives on Pittsburgh Day

So I forgot to mention this Friday, but friend to the bloghosphere @btoland_pg has been promoting April 12 as International Pittsburgh Day.  4-12.  Get it?  So I added the 'International' prénom, but it fits because the idea this is a diaspora thing really.  Every first or multiple generation Pittsburgh diasoran out there should do a Pittsburgh that day. Whatever they want. So let's start planning for next year. Maybe we could fund a prize even.

What else is April 12? It is also the day Marty McFly arrived in the future. From 1985 no less.  I really do believe that if you took a lot of folks in Pittsburgh in 1985 and zapped them out to Pittsburgh of today, they would be just as befudded as Marty was getting out of the DeLorean. I'll just leave it at that.

It did just exude steel though. Next best thing to a car made out of Corten.

So, don't believe all you read. I saw that Back to the future pic and didn't really think about it.

Actually, Marty McFly traveled from October 26, 1985 to November 5, 1955.
