Food & Games- PNC Park Vendor ‘Lemonade Guy’ Passes

If you ever attended any sporting event in Pittsburgh over the past 25+ years, you probably have seen Kenny Geidel selling various treats like Coke, cotton candy or lemonade when the Steelers, Pirates, Pens and Panthers were in action. 

Some may remember him as ‘Coke Guy’ or the guy who would shout ‘Lemonadeeeeeeee!’ at PNC Park.  Sadly on Monday, Ken Geidel passed away.  It was confirmed on Facebook by his daughter Amy below.!/pages/The-guy-who-says-LEMONADEEE-at-the-pirate-games/258315654411

The Pirates are going to issue an official statement on Tuesday about Geidel’s passing.  I for one will miss him and going to games won’t be the same anymore.

R.I.P. Ken.  Here’s to you selling out of ‘Lemonadeeeeeee!” at the big ballpark in the sky.

    We remember him at 3 Rivers when he sold “Coke here! Ice Cold COOOOOKKKEEEE!” We used to laugh but he was always busting his tail to sell. What a hard worker. When he moved to PNC, they stopped selling Coke and went to Pepsi. What a strange call hearing Kenny yell “Pepsi here! Pepsi here!” The sad thing is that he worked harder than any of the clowns who call themselves Buccos and didn’t make what he should have.
