Steelers 11, Chargers 10

Cale and I had so much fun on Sunday afternoon at the Steelers game. It was cold, snowy and an absolute perfect day for Steelers football. Our seats were unbelievable and the only time we couldn't see was when the tv cameras rolled in front of us. We were surrounded by super friendly and nice people; the Steelers' fans can't be beat and we cheered, shouted and high fived with the best of them. Some picture high-lights for you (because I know you care!)...


Some over priced snacks, but we don't care because we're just happy to be there!

Starting to snow about 40 minutes before kick-off

There was just a little accumulation! (and this wet snow is what made me freeze during the first half!)

Lining up right in front of us...literally!

Some of our offense getting ready to go in. They had a rough go of it on Sunday.

Bundled up in our Steelers gear- trying to stay warm at half-time.

Big Ben ready to go for it.

One of our favorites, Troy Polamalou and his hair. There was a heater right in front of us that the players kept coming over to use to warm themselves up. Not sure what Jeff Reed is doing (the guy bending over). Warming up his behind? Who cares- he was the high scorer and won the game for us with a field goal!

Everything about the night was great. Yes, even the snow! Well, the refs weren't great (quite the opposite actually), but we won and that was what we wanted to see. It is just such a fun to be at the stadium cheering along with everyone else. I went to the bathroom at the start of the 3rd quarter and when I came back in to the field, 60,000 people were waving their Terrible Towels around. It almost made me dizzy as I was walking down the steps to our seats, but it was amazing to see. We loved it and can't wait to go again! Although, that will probably be awhile...

I'm so glad you got to enjoy such a great game even through the cold weather! BUT... I'm REALLY glad you're home again so we can get together soon... of course after you return from Thanksgiving at your mom's!
