Why I Was at the Steeler Game

Here I am ready to go to the bus for the Steeler game yesterday evening, of course I’m all bundled up underneath the jeggings and Steeler shirt. What was amazing to me was that the baseball hat was warm…no wonder men wear them!

On the bus and on our way, we are about 30 miles from Pittsburgh.

When we got to Heinz Field we got to see The Great Hall, sorry about the picture but this is the Busses memiorbella. He’s retired now but sure miss him in the games!

Can you imagine seeing your son up there? What a moment for me, all those Mighty Might football games I went to, all those uniforms I washed and tried to get white, captain of the high school football team… it all led to this for me♥

What a moment for him too!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Oh, what a wonderful honor for your son. Congratulations to him!!!

As I've shared with you before, I grew up in Pittsburgh, so I was living there during their first two (of 4!!!!) Super Bowl victories. I remember walking up and down the street with my friends, screaming, "Steelers are the best!!!"

And Jack Lambert was always a huge favorite...as was Lynn Swann, Rocky Bleier, Terry Bradshaw, and Franco.

Actually, I'm still stuck in the 70's as far as the NFL goes....I ONLY like the 70's Steelers...no other team, including today's Steelers. I'm pretty much a college football only girl now. (You know, can't be disloyal to the 70's "Steeltown Boys" by rooting for today's guys, right?)

Anyhow, what great photos...and, again, how wonderful for your son to be honored like that.

Blessings,
Patti

Well how cool is that?! I would be a proud momma as well! I think of my brother everytime you post about the Steelers. He's been a fan since he was little. :) And he's about 40.
