I've never been to a Steelers playoff game. For that matter, despite living in Pittsburgh my entire life and being a rabid Steelers fan since the age of 7, I haven't been to very many Steelers games at all over the years.

But because of my insecurities, I was reduced to watching the game through a window on the tv of a boat that I wasn't even on. My woman should have dumped me right then and there.
