As soon as we made the move from our beloved homeland, we immediately sized up this area and found it to be rich with cultural and historical monuments. We are 2 hours from the beach, 2 hours from the mountains and 2 hours from our nations capital. It didn't take me long to calculate that New York was easily within a days drive.
While I was excited about the prospect of seeing beautiful landscapes and national treasures, Chris had shifted his focus towards Pittsburgh. All these years of dreaming about Three Rivers and being one of those *Terrible Towel* waving fans might actually come true!
Well, fast-forward 8 years and that stadium is gone as well as every near opportunity for tickets. It seems that taking an afternoon trip to the moon might be easier than getting seats for a Steelers' game.
Until this year.
During a week-long training seminar at work that was fairly close to legalized torture, a little ray of gold & black sunshine came beaming down towards my husband. Within a matter of minutes, a phone call was made and tickets were arranged to be sent to a hotel room in his name.
Tickets....ON THE 50 YARD LINE......ON THE SECOND ROW......for the greatest fan to never see a game in person.
Is it okay to describe a grown man as giddy? Cause he was giddy.....Big. Time.
Here is an overload of pictures that will only interest you if you:
A)Love the Steelers
B)Love my husband
If it is the latter, I would prefer you state your relation....by blood.....to him.
Let the photo frenzy begin!!!!
I made Chris and his brother promise to include themselves in at least one photo. These are the same brothers who ended up in Germany....BY CHANCE....at the exact same time and took nary one photograph of themselves together or apart.
Gettin' ready for the game :)
Big Ben took off his shoes and signed each one and gave them away. Unfortunately he was not at all smitten with Chris or his brother.
The bounty went to this kid, who was sitting to the left of Chris and Scott. There was another lucky boy sitting to the right. It was at this moment that Chris realized he had made a crucial mistake in inviting his brother instead of Sam with his utter cuteness and player appeal.
