Scenes from around Pittsburgh and Heinz Field before, during and after yesterday's 31-24 epic come-from-behind Pittsburgh Steelers victory over arch-nemesis Baltimore in the AFC Divisional Playoff game.

A perfect day for January football at Heinz Field: steel-wool grey skies, a frosty river and lingering snow-cover. Oh and bone-chilling wind to round it out.
The tailgating scene in the Gold lots.
Franco Harris chatting with fans on his way into the game.
A Ravens fan walks a black & gold gauntlet.
Excellent throwback jersey.
Watching the Penguins game while tailgating. More than a few tailgates were doing the same thing. A great day for Pittsburgh sports -- Penguins win, Pitt basketball wins and the Steelers win the biggest game of them all.

If you thought the wind was bad for the kicking game, it absolutely played hell with flip-cups, but these warriors soldiered on.
Who invited this guy? He deserved to have the Patriots lose for committing such an egregious Jersey Foul.
I have a feeling this guy walked around most of the day blissfully unaware of what was on his back.
Steelers pimp cup.
View of Downtown Pittsburgh from across the Allegheny.
Father and son day at the old ballyard.
'Nuff said here.
Men of Troy. Great throwbacks here, too.
A 30-year-old vintage t-shirt.
Will these folks have to update their plate in a few weeks?
Now that is a spread.
It was Raven season on Saturday.
Cool pin collection.
Beer bong boat race.
Mr. Rogers, havin' a cold one.
The gentleman in the grey jacket with his back facing us is the great Steve Mellon, who held that camera aloft to create this excellent piece of photography.

Mendenhall Scores in the first quarter.
Renegade. The Steelers defense responded appropriately with a Harrison sack and a three and out for Baltimore.
Celebrating the win.
See you next week.
