You should have let me know you were going to be there...would have been nice to meet up with Mr. & Mrs. SoD. I had open seats in front of me too, because the people there gave up hope in the middle of the second quarter, getting up to leave and never returning. When we almost tied it up in the second half, I was thinking about how it would have felt to fairweather fans like that to miss out on an epic comeback...but all for naught. Oh well.

Ruthless, I'm fairly certain I saw you in a bathroom, you came in and jetted right back out after seeing the line. I wanted to say hi but that would've seemed very seedy to call you back into the bathroom. I was in said line for about 8 minutes and wasn't about to bail, I reaaaally had to pi$$). I figured I'd see you for sure out in the concourse or up near the 520's sections again...but no luck.
As for the game...I had a weird feeling I had seen this exact same game play out before...live at Heinz Field...and i had. 2005 AFC Championship vs. Patriots. Other than being known as the game that my beer froze inside the plastic cup i was holding (it was dam cold that day), the game ended 41-27, bears game was 40-23. Half time score back in '05 was 24-3 and featured a fairly furious comeback only to be thwarted by many turnovers and defensive td (I was so close to jumping out of my seat as Rodney Harrison taunted my section after scoring). Halftime score vs. bears 24-10, another comeback (this one to within 4 points) and plagued by turnovers and defensive tds again.
These are the only 2 losses i have witnessed while attending a game. But its not my fault, i have witnessed about 7 or 8 wins at least. I guess they know to lose in the most unkind way when they lose with me there.
she did a good job of keeping secret until the last minute... thought about sending from my iphone once we got there, but, just felt like i didn't know her plans and didn't want to ruin whatever she had planned....
