Pittsburgh Pierogies v. Milwaukee Sausages

At the end of this serious story about a baseball player hitting a team mascot with his baseball bat, there's this intriguing tidbit:

Greenberg said the racing sausages were scheduled to compete against racing pierogies (dumplings) at a series with the Pirates in Pittsburgh Aug. 15-17 and then again during a series between the teams Aug. 22-24 at Milwaukee.

Racing pierogies? I want pictures!

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

Indeed, pierogi (well, humans dressed as) races are part of the entertainment at Pirates' games. Marshall (my husband) has seen them. You can also buy pierogies at the concession stand (he opted for the sausage sandwich that *comes topped with fries*).

Best pierogies: Teenie's Tavern, Youngstown, Ohio. (available Fridays, bring a container to get some to go).

It's good to know that Pittsburgh has high kulcha. Now we're going to have to make a road trip to see the pierogies.

But Katie, with all due respect, the best pierogies in the world are the pierogies that my grandmother used to make thirty years ago. They have the benefit of only existing in my memory at this point, so they're beyond compare (literally). But I'll keep Teenies' in mind, for sure. Thanks for the recommendation.

Oh, and Marshall is clearly a barbarian for preferring sausages to pierogies. The only food better than pierogies is golombki. Any other substitution is unforgiveable. :-)

We are from Canfield, Ohio. We moved to Texas over 30 years ago. Our entire family makes periodic treks back home, and we never miss a chance to get perogies from Teenies. Its a family tradition years in the making. There's absolutely nothing like them in Texas!

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
