2011heinz_field

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.

2011pens_tailgate

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.
