View Full Version : GOING TO FIRST GAME!

08-02-2007, 03:37 PM
I am going to my first Steelers game ever on October 7th (week 5) when we play the Seahawks. I didn't think that I would be able to experience a live game until I was out of college for various reasons, but when a friend (season ticket holder) told me that my birthday present this year was going to a Steeler game I went nuts. My excitement for October 7th is so much that it cannot be expressed through any worldly communication. I would gladly sacrifice the weeks and months of my life in between now and then if that day could be tomorrow. The plan is too get dropped of in station square, eat at the hard rock and take the fiery over to the stadium. I am telling my friend every time I talk to him how hyper I am going be when we are there. We better win even more now not just for the fact that it's the whining Seahawks, but because I am going to be in the crowd. I could talk for hours in this post without getting bored about the bursting energy inside me anytime I even begin to think about it, but, I think you get the idea. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Being at Heinz Field in person is absolutely amazing.

Can't really explain the feeling, but I won't have to since you'll experience it first hand.

Being in October it shouldn't be too brutal cold. It can get RATHER chilly in there with the open end.

I can only imagine the atmosphere, or maybe I can't is a better way to put it. I have such unbelievably high expectations of the day that I think it would impossible for them to be met. Yet I have a strange feeling that somehow even though they are so high, they won't only be met but exceeded.

When the Steelers hit the field and all the towels are flying that place is an absolute MADHOUSE.

For some reason the guy who does the PA system just gets me excited, he has such a distinct voice. Anyone know his name?

How long before the game starts does the stadium start filling up?

Do you know how good the seats are?

You have great views. All around the Stadium.

Enjoy it ShutDown. Being at the game is one of the craziest experiences you'll have in your life. The game is so crazy that even the LED Boards, Matrixboards, and Jumbotron get into the game.

Taking the ferry over is a GREAT idea, also. I do that for every game I see, football and baseball, and it's an experience in and of itself, and honestly fun. Kids love it, too

Trust me...

I know the feeling...

I am going in November, to my first game.

Man, I hope I get to go to a game this season... there's nothin' quite like a Steelers' home game.

The seats are pretty high up he said somewhere in the middle of the field (35. 40) I think. I would much rather be high up and in the middle than close at and end zone I think though.

I feel stuck up saying I can't actually remember when my first game was. My family has been going to games for awhile. I'm trying to find this picture but if anyone has lived in Pittsburgh for awhile they might remember a picture that was in the Post Gazette for a long time in the 70's it was of a guy in a Michelin jacket with three people to his right sitting down while everyone else was standing and waving their Terrible Towels. The picture is of my dad, his brother, sister, and dad. I will try and find it, it's a pretty cool picture even if you don't know the people it shows a whole section of fans waving the Terrible Towels.

Enjoy evry minute! Take in everything that is happening around you. The sounds, smells, visuals, take photo's next to The Chief, and get your face painted for $5! Don't forget to buy an authentic Terrible Towel at the field! I think they are still only $7

And watch the Steelers destroy the SeaChickens!

Very cool. Enjoy yourself and be safe. I'm with you on the seats. I have season tix in 507 and I prefer sitting higher up than lower.

Again, have fun. :tt02:
