Here are some pitchers from my first-ever regular-season game at Heinz Field...

I parked in the garage on Ninth Street near Fort Duquesne Boulevard. As I walked down Fort Duquesne Boulevard, I saw this on a sign gantry over the 10th Street Bypass.


This was the view from Fort Duquesne Boulevard as I was ready to cross the Sixth Street Bridge.

4-0? What the hell? Heffelfinger was overpaid.

Good pix though.

Everyone notice the "getting ready to enter..." picture and realize what a gaddamn debacle it is getting into Heinz Field every Sunday. It's a joke and my biggest beef with the new stadium. Really it's probably my only problem with it. It just takes way, way, way too long to get through.

Yeah, sweet pics.  I like the last one.  Some guy in 1892 got paid $500 to play one game?  Jeez, that's serious dough, relatively speaking.

At halftime my friend and I went down to the Great Hall to get some chicken wings at Quaker Steak & Lube (best wings I've ever had, by the way). We spent most of the third quarter down there eating and watching the game on TV. After a while we decided to make our way back up to our seats, and as we got out to the rotunda, we heard a rumble of cheers that got gradually louder, so we started running up the rotunda. We later found out that Ben Roethlisberger just ran in a TD from 30 yards out to get us the lead. Unfortunately, the air got sucked back out of the stadium just moments later: my friend and I missed Roethlisberger's TD run, but saw Josh Cribbs' 100-yard TD return. That pissed me off. By the time we got back to our seats, our thoughts were, "Just score one more TD and don't fuck up anymore." Thankfully that's what the team did.

Sounds like a good reference point for #7 in extension talks.

What is that in 2008 money?  A brazilian dollars or somethin'?
