The Steelers once again played just well enough to beat their opponent. If they don't learn to close games out, I'm going to have a heart attack. What amazed me most though, was the sheer number of people in the stadium decked out in black and gold. A radio announcer declared the stadium was probably 60/40 in favor of the Steelers fans, and I'd have to agree with that. I wholeheartedly believe there were more terrible towels being waved than people cheering for the Lions. Crazy! Also, we had amazing seats, only eight rows back in the corner of the end zone. A couple of particularly awesome Steelers fans in front of us were wearing Ben's Miami of Ohio jersey and Troy's USC jersey (which I mention in case anyone reading this blog needs a Christmas idea for me).
Meanwhile, Grandma Evonne and Grandpa Don where kind enough to watch Emily while we hit the game. She's been babbling quite a bit recently, and I've been wondering if she's trying to put several words together. Once Eric swears he heard her say "I want to watch Elmo"! But yesterday, those babbles undeniably became real, honest to goodness sentences. Several people witnessed her ask "where is ball?" multiple times and then in the car on the ride home, she told me twice, "I want arf" (a.ka. her stuffed puppy dog). What a big, articulate girl! We're so proud of you Emily; keep up the good work!
Celebrating a touchdown late in the first half!
The picture doesn't do it justice - there were a TON of terrible towels waving at the end of the game!
All smiles for another victory!
