I went last year. It was definitely a blast!

I won't be going this year though. I've got too much else going on now.

My buddies and I rolled in on Friday afternoon last year. Bar hopped all night. Went to the Blitz Saturday morning and afternoon. Then we went to to Pirates game Saturday night. Limped home exhausted on Sunday.

That was one helluva weekend!

I've been to every one of them. We tailgate for it. Now, I just stay at the tailgate. I see Heinz 10 times a season. Also go to the Pirates game in the evening. L:ots to do. Autographs. (Long lines) eat, drink, check out the Great Hall for sure. Go on the field and kick a FG.
