I am going to the Steelers and Cardinals pre-season opener at Heinz Field on August 13, 2009. My wife has surprised me with this bit of news as it coincides with a trip we are going to take to Erie PA to visit her family.
Diane wanted to have it be a last minute surprise but decided that it would be far more fun to see me plan the trip, think about the game etc than wait. I’m glad she told me. She is sending me off to the game with her cousin Marci who is a close, but not quite as extreme fan as me. Well, perhaps she is just as extreme, but if she reads this and sees that I put her in second fiddle behind me it will stir her blood. But, since I concede that she’s at least equal, perhaps she’ll still drive.
I’m hoping to get down to Pittsburgh earlier than game time so we can trek around a bit before we have to go into the game. I have been to two other Steelers games and they are a blast. Oh I can’t wait for an Iron City Light.
We just purchased our tickets. We decided to sit up high and look down on the Pittsburgh side from Section 533 Row J.
