I actually really like the aesthetic of the structure, looks funky and industrial, and it’s quite unique, thought that’s just me.

It may be a wild card in 2019, unlike the Steelers. :lol:

Maybe it'll be a 2020 top 10 draft pick then.

So, I've never been to Kennywood, but I'd definitely love to go, especially considering that in my childhood years, I was under the misconception that Kennywood was named after Kenny Rogers because there was a park called Dollywood that was named after Dolly Parton. Imagine my surprise when I got older and Google came around and I learned that Kennywood has been Kennywood since its beginning in 1898. LOL

:lmao:

I can't tell if this is a superb job at trolling, or someone doing a terrible job at venting political beliefs in one of the most unfitting places to do so possible.
