Steelers vs Colts

Happy Wednesday ya'll!!!

Thank you all for weighing in on my latest dilemma...I swear it is ALWAYS something.

Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the Steelers game (we played the Colts) with my friend from work Kathy! I was such a great day for a game!!!! Chilly but no rain or snow in the forecast!!!

We met up with my sister for lunch near the stadium.  She came with her husband, my nephew Matthew and his girlfriend. We decided to try out  a new place for lunch called Southern Tier Brewery. We put or names on the wait list and they said 1/2 hour. We waited 45 minutes and then started getting a little angry.  After another 15 minutes we were finally seated.  The problem is that it is so close to the stadium that people eat and then sit and drink beer until the game start so it took forever. But...finally we were seated.  They have a very limited menu on game day - about 20 items total including food, salads and appetizers. The food was just okay so I don't think we will go here again. Not worth that long wait and they really need to estimate the waiting time better even if it is a game day!



Here we are walking up to our seats...I love that huge Steeler logo banner!


And, of course, the selfie in the seats! Kathy is a great friend and I have so much fun with her!!!



Here is what we do at Heinz Field every game. Before the coin toss they spread out a huge terrible towel as they announce the players!!! It is so cool to watch and you can put your name in a raffle to be selected to be one of the people holding the towel on the field - I have never won :-(



This is the BEST part of the hone games in my eyes!!!! When the defense needs charged up, once a game, they play renegade!!! Everyone sings along and waves their terrible towels!! It is so fun and such high energy!!! LOVE IT!!!



So, in the end, we won!!! It came down to the last few minutes and everyone around us was saying it was over but I kept saying "anything can happen" and it did!  Here is the last 6 minutes summary...

"Steelers settling for another field goal to make the score 26-24 with 6:36 left in regulation.
Both team exchanged punts before the Colts got the football back with 2:28 left in regulation trailing by two points and only one timeout remaining. On 3rd down Hoyer threw deep, and although it looked like the pass wasn’t catchable, defensive pass interference was the call giving Indianapolis the first down and great field position.
With a 43-yard field and 1:11 left in the game, the Colts missed the field goal to give the Steelers a 26-24 win.
The win moves the Steelers’ record to 4-4, and their third straight win."
All in all it was a great game!!! Thank you to Kathy for taking me along!!

Don't you love a good game? Who do you cheer for?

  2. Well GA Tech played Pitt on Saturday and we got our comeuppance as usual. If Defeat builds character, then GA Tech should be overflowing.:) But it is always fun to go to a game.

  3. I do enjoy a good game, but I haven't been to any in many years and I don't watch much of them on TV. I would root for the underdog!

  8. I've never been a football fan. I used to try and watch the games with Wade but just couldn't get into it. He went to a few Pittsburgh games with a friend of his. He loved going to them.
