Good morning everyone, and particularly, all you Dad's and Dad's-to-be out there. I'm in the Dad-to-be category and am drinking coffee from the "All Star Dad" mug my sister in law got me. Holy crow, I hope so!
As many of you probably were aware, Steelers tickets went on sale yesterday at 10:00 am. Me and my sibs got together at a central location with 3 computers and internet access and were successful in getting 4 tickets in section 521 for the Steelers v. Jets game on December 19th. I may have had to cancel my training camp trip this year but there is no way I'll miss the annual bro trip to see the Steelers at Heinz! This will be our 9th consecutive trip that began when the Steelers hosted the Detroit Lions on December 23, 2001 - the inaugural season at Heinz Field. The Steelers went 7-1 in their new home including this 47-14 dismantling of the Lions.
So, I am curious, was anyone else able to get tickets to a game yesterday from TicketMaster? If so, which one? Last year, our trip was to see the Steelers v. Vikings game and I had the great fortune to meet one of our regulars here, PixburghArn, and his son (before he took the field and coached them to victory). Perhaps some of us will get to make personal introductions again this year?
Well, enjoy the day everyone. It's nearly 100 degrees and sunny here in South Jersey and I may hide out in my AC all day and do next to nothing. Hope you all get to do the same!
