Perfect. The only way to describe the afternoon in and around Heinz Field.
Quite a tailgating scene unfolds each week in the lots under the Veterans' Bridge ramps, which includes ...
... The Octobong. Truly a marvel of modern engineering, which unfortunately, I did not catch in action this week. But you have to see it. It's amazing. And ...
... this old ambulance converted into a rapid response mobile tailgating unit. Check out their menu below:
Now THAT is a tailgate spread.
A very elaborate cornhole board. Nice touch putting the hole between the uprights.
"You're ------' out!" A dead ringer for Kenny Powers spotted on North Side.
The latest in people-will-do-literally-anything-for-beer technology, the cooler-scooter, powered by 9-volt batteries.
... In case there was any question on the matter of locale ...
Clearly, being a Browns fan takes a toll. This man is only 31.
Possibly the dumbest piece of merchandise ever created. I'm all for love and peace, but not in a game that is predicated on men of superhuman size, speed and strength colliding in such a manner that the equivilent of aggravated assault occurs on every snap. Ask Josh Cribbs and Mo Massoquoi how much love and peace there was on Sunday.
Throwback of the day: Autographed Rashard Mendehall Fighting Illini jersey.
Pants N'at. I usually hate the team colored camos, but the guy gets a pass for all the cool patches.
First sighting of a Red Zone Redman jersey.
Folks, what you're looking is what's known as the "I-Formation." Once prolific in these parts, it's been hunted to near-extincition by its natural enemy, the Brucius Arianis. It's been bred in captivity, and is very slowly being reintroduced to the wild. Shhhh. Don't scare it away. It could disappear at any time.
Love this view with the church steeple in the background.
The nearly completed Stage AE.
I want to see this guy start a wrestling tag team with ...
... this guy. And they could ride into the ring together ...
... on this thing.
Black and Gold Ants marching
In what must have been one heckuva reception, these newlyweds had a day after boatgate blowout on the river, which featured ...
... the largest drinking Jenga set known to man. Good luck on that turn, sister.
The wedding party up on the boat deck.
Bye now. No home games until November 14.
