    Re: Anyone planning on traveling to see the Steelers in 08?

    Yea, TRAVELING to Heinz to catch a preseason game against Carolina. Part of the annual pilgrimage with friends back to Pittsburgh to show off the stadiums and the city for a Pirates/Steelers double-dip (although, the teams screwed it up this year, and they are back to back days. Good time, though. Good time

    Just look for the little gold Hyundai Accent flying up 19 and 79
    in WV with the Steeler flags in the windows and:

    "Raleigh, NC to Latrobe, PA -> Steelers Training Camp!"

    written across the back windshield, and:

    "Honk if You Love the Steelers" on the side windows!

    Yup! That would be me!
    Umm, let's just say John Thompson, the Steelers marketing
    guy who basically MCs the entire day's events DEFINITELY remembers
    me and my Steeler sister every year. Most of the guys running
    the Women's camp hang out at Sharkeys and one year they
    were buying us drinks like there's no tomorrow. Needless to
    say, I was not thrilled to be out on the field the next day in
    the heat with a martini driven hangover and learned a valuable
    lesson!

    Greg Warren remembered us from a prior year as did Louis Lipps
    and John Colb. Edmund Nelson probably couldn't remember
    what he did yesterday, but he's still a hoot every year we go.

    Very sad about Dwight White....I will see if I can post the pic
    of the two of us sitting on a bench together from last year.

    He was the one I asked for his thoughts about Joey leaving and what
    he thought of James Harrison. He didn't have too many kind words for
    Peezy, but said that Harrison was a real good football player.

    I know that Tunch Ilkin remembers me for sure! He was doing a live
    radio broadcast from Sharkey's and the crowd I was with said, "Go up
    and ask a question!" So, I did, but I laid it on thick with a heavy
    Southern drawl and had the guys on the air just rolling. In the end,
    Tunch says on the mic: "Well folks, there you have it, but I think we
    needed a translator for that last question!"

    I apologized after then shut it down and he laughed and said, "Hell, don't
    worry, we needed some variety on that show today!"

    Re: Anyone planning on traveling to see the Steelers in 08?

    I'm only 15 minutes from The Big Tent, a.k.a. Clowns Stadium. Seeing that the game is at night, I'm thinking of tailgating then coming back to the house to watch the game. But I intend to party downtown all day.

    Several of us are close enough to Cleveland that coming up isn't a big deal. So, if anyone is coming in for some more Steeler ownership of the Clowns let me know. I normally hang at Flannery's, so if there is no tailgate where I'll know anyone that's where I'll be.

    I will be coming down for Training Camp this year and at least one home game. If something is going down for the Cowqueens game, then I'll be there. Otherwise, it'll probably be the Giants game.
