so i was just flipping around on cable and this movie caught my eye. with pittsburgh in the name, how could i resist? it turns out that this 1979 sports spoof is about the pittsburgh pythons, a basketball team that isn’t very good until they turn to astrology. starring julius erving, this film comes with plenty of gym shorts with contrast piping, striped kneesocks and a groovy theme song. it also features shots all over and city trash cans with the slogan “pittsburgh’s on the move.” whether or not you’re into the late 70s formula comedy, it’s worth seeing a glimpse of our city back in the day.
