IKEA – It’s Swedish for Road Trip to Pittsburgh

November 3, 2007

So the mom unit and I went to IKEA today. Even though the IKEA in Canada is closer, we drove to the one in Pittsburgh, figuring the time spent in the car would pretty much even out, once you counted any border delays into the situation. Are we nuts? Probably. But the drive down was nice. Even though the foliage was a little bit past its peak, the colors were still gorgeous.

After IKEA, we went to this mall nearby. I wanted a Sidney Crosby t-shirt. I figured this should not be hard to accomplish, since in Buffalo, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a Sabres shirt. Well, apparently in Pittsburgh, its pretty darn difficult. It took me 15 minutes of wandering around Dick’s Sporting Goods before I could find the Penguins shirts buried in a back corner of the store.

You would think that the team that has Sidney freaking Crosby playing for it would have more presence, but I guess if it isn’t Steelers related, it doesn’t exist.
