Local couple creates GoFundMe to feed Pittsburgh fans catfish

First on CNN: Senators asked Comey to investigate AG Jeff Sessions for possible perjury

— Move over hot chicken. Nashville's new favorite dish is catfish.

Two locals want to bring that local flavor to Steel City. They created a GoFundMe to do it.

This is the second GoFundMe account setup by Nick and Kailani DeLorenzo. Their first was taken down by administrators.

The account was called "Offend a Penguin with a Catfish." Nick and Kailani meant to be funny, saying they wanted to raise enough money to bring a truckload of catfish to Pittsburgh and dump it in front of the arena.

The second account they created is much more sincere. It's called "Stand With Us." The goal is to raise $25,000. They want to take the money to go to Pittsburgh and feed the local fans with, you guessed it, fried catfish.

"If there's a Game 5, we plan on getting a caravan of people up there to share catfish, an 'instrument of crime,' and turn it into an 'instrument of community,'" Nick DeLorenzo said. "It will be pounds and pounds and pounds. We said a truckload, so we have to deliver on that."
