Hi everybody!

SASF, Jr. and I are going to the game in Houston on 10-2. It won't be as much fun as last year's 4th game of the season at Heinz Field we went to with Ruth and Mrs. Ruth, SteelerNation1, Jigawatts, and everyone else, but we're hoping for a great time anyway!

Question is: Is it better to buy tix through the stadium, or through steelers.com? Do they put all us Steeler fans together in the same part of the stadium (I hope)? Anything else I should be thinking about?

Thanks for any advice!

P.S. Anyone coming down? 1st beer's on me!

I always buy on ebay when I get tix.

I have traveled to many away games. I usually try to get the tickets directly from the team. Unlike the Steelers, many teams don't sell out right away.

There is no visiting fan section. You are mixed in with everybody else. But there will be plenty of Steelers fans there to keep you comfortable. There always are. Before the game starts, it will appear that half of the fans are Steeler fans. But then the local teams fans will file in right before kickoff. Wear your colors and wave your towel with pride and comfort, we have taking over many opposing teams stadium.

I love how the Steelers fans hold up their Terrible Towels while the home team is being introduced. It blocks out large portions of the stands for the whole TV audience to see.

Placed my order for two tix just now ... woo-hoooo!

Went through stub-hub, checked out a bunch of sites (ebay, Texans site, and one or two others), these were the cheapest by a few bucks. You guys ever hear of seat-geek? Pretty cool, it combines all of the different sites into 1 ... but on the other hand wasn't the cheapest.

I guess the purchase won't be "confirmed" for another 48 hrs ... holding my breath!

I just ordered 2 tix for the stains game on a Thurday night. I got them on NFL site which goes through ticketmasters. It came out to be about $145 per ticket in Section 533.

I'm stoked!! :tt2 :tt2

Tickets in HAND!!! WOO-HOOO!! Last time I saw the Steelers play Houston they were in "Baby Blue" uniforms ("Luv Ya Blue" ... HA!!!!), and I think the father of the two Ryan boys (Buddy) was their coach.

Now, I just gotta find a nice Steeler bar or two for the evening before.

Hey Ghetto - do you know Houston? :-)

Will be the best seats I have ever gotten for a Steelers game, now I just have to hope they don't open the dome like last time because we will be in the sun the while game. :/

Hey Bus -

You from Houston? If so, can I ask for a little help at this post?

Nah I am up in Austin. We wont be heading down to Houston till the morning of the game. Going to try and be there atleast two hours early for some tailgating, just need to find where the big horde of Steelers fans are going to be at in the parking lot.

OK, thanks BusMan. If you figure out where the tailgating action is and have a chance, please post back here. I'll probably call/email some fan clubs there to get that info, if I find anything out, I'll do the same.

Thanks!

Yeah if I find something I will let you know but this is the only board I know for the Steelers since I cant find the forums on the Official Steelers site anymore. So you might have a better chance of find the spot before I do. Let me know what u hear.
