While some cities like to downplay their idiosyncrasies, Pittsburgh embraces them. It's like a continuous episode of SNL except everyone is in on the joke. Case in point - "Chipped Ham Sam" who was purchased at "Hometowne Sports" a Steelers/Penguins/Pirates store which also has completely separate storefronts across the hall for "Her" and "Kids" and sells such gems as Steelers one piece women's swimsuits and fiber optic Troy Polamalu Christmas ornaments.
I digress. According to Sam's informational tag, he was born to Polish and Ukrainian parents with whom he will most likely always reside. He spends his free time "goin dahn south side to drink some iron cities" and his favorite expression is "Stop jaggin' arahnd." He's a bit out of his element here enjoying a delicious margarita at Chili's in the Tampa Airport, but I have the utmost faith he will assimilate fine out of the 'Burgh, much like myself.
