Hey All,

I got lucky enough to be in PA this year during camp time. :thumbsup: Unfortunately it will probably be my last for quite a while. Heck, took me 28 years to get to this one. So, I want to make sure I get the best out of it on Friday; weather permitting of course.

I read in the paper that they are having a full team signature session before the game? I'd like to get some to make a wall present for my baby boy, and perhaps a picture Anyone know more information about this session?

What else is happening on that night? Is the Coca-Cola display or Steeler's Experience going to be available for viewing? Also, what happens after the practice?

Any "inside" information would definitely help. I already missed a once-in-my-lifetime opportunity at the airport (read my other post in Experiences) and I don't want to miss another.

but there will be fireworks Friday night after practice. Zambelli International will stage a fireworks show at 9:20 p.m. after the Steelers hold their annual night practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium.

Practice begins at 7 p.m., and fans can get autographs of the players and coaches on the field at 6:45 p.m. Gates open at 5 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for children under 18 and seniors, and free to those under 12 with a parent. Proceeds benefit the Greater Latrobe School District sports programs.

Definately heading up for the fireworks and practice.

Hey!!! I belive this is the first time in the last 15 years that a Pittsburgh based professional team has hosted a firework night during the Summer and is giving us a productive product at the same time!!!! Now all they need to do is hand out bobbleheads.

Any word on a Sopranos spoof by the new mascot?

Steeler mascot beating the Bengal tiger over the head with a steel support beam and then dumping him in the Allegheny sounds good to me. :tt02:

At least this team provides us with a quality on-field product.

The Zambelli family always does a helluva job when it comes to putting on a show in their hometown. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

Ugh. Rained a good bit this morning. Seems like it's starting to clear up. I'm not sure if it's supposed to stay clear for the rest of the day/night?
