  • Live: From the Pens’ Home Opener Last Thursday was literally one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. As a Pittsburgh’er, as a sports fan, and as a human. Not only did we get to celebrate a Stanley Cup Victory AND 50 years of Penguins at our Home Opener… we got to do it in front of Ovechkin and the Capitals.

  • 11 Kennywood Rides We All Miss Dearly From restaurants, local shops, even the Beaver Valley Mall… we at YBC have really enjoyed digging up some old memories and reminiscing about those places that we all miss. It’s in that same spirit, and the fact that I have an unhealthy love for Kennywood, that I thought it would be fun to do the same thing with some of our favorite throwback rides at the greatest place on earth! What are some of your favorites? Make sure to share any memories that you have so we can all enjoy :-)

  • Allie’s Fantasy Football Draft Kit If you’re anything like me, you’ve been doing whatever you can to fill your fantasy football void for the last 6 months. Don’t get me wrong, I love FanDuel & Draft Kings as much as the next girl, but nothing compares to the OG Fantasy Football leagues. For those of you who may have been busy this off-season, I put together a pretty simple draft kit. It’s got my top 5 at each position, a few who I’d pass on unless they drop below their draft value, and some who are way better than their rankings.
