With the hometown PITTSBURGH PENGUINS poised to take the NHL's STANLEY CUP tonight, holding a commanding 3-1 lead over the SAN JOSE SHARKS, CBS RADIO AC WBZZ/(100.7 STAR)’s BUBBA (host of “BUBBA Show”) has been busy rallying the city behind its ice hockey team.
TUESDAY morning before the show, he wondered why MURRAY AVENUE, in downtown PITTSBURGH near where he grew up, wasn’t renamed “MATT MURRAY AVE.” in honor of the great postseason play of the team's starting, rookie goalie.
BUBBA called that district’s CITY COUNCIL member, CASEY O'CONNOR, who agreed to take it to a special session , provided that BUBBA was able to gather 20,000 signatures by the end of that morning’s show.
Well, he did, and in a special session one hour following BUBBA’s show that day, the matter was unanimously approved by the CITY COUNCIL for the street to be renamed TODAY for Game 5 at home.
