Until then, let’s begin with some ground rules. No cheating. Sure, you’re probably taking this quiz on your phone, so the rule “no cell phones” doesn’t apply. But c’mon, play nice and stay off Google. That’s it! That’s the only rule.

So now, let’s get started by looking back at all the best Pittsburgh hot takes this year. The national media loves to drop in for a weekend, express shock that it’s actually nice here and then write about it. We love it so much (eye roll) that we even made a Pittsburgh hot takes bingo card.
