View Full Version : What are your plans for gameday??


Steelers & I
01-08-2009, 05:43 AM
As Sunday inches nearer, damn it's getting closer, I just thought that I would ask the forum members what they have planned for Sunday?

A few friends and I considered purchasing tickets to attend the game but we decided not to make the trip. Instead, we're going to tailgate in my garage. Now mind you, I live in the midwest and the temperature is supposed to be right around 18 degrees. We decided that if the Steelers players are going to be cold, along with the fans who are attending the game, then we should MAN UP and bare the elements as well.

We plan on starting about 4 hours before kickoff. Beer and pizza are on the menu. For entertainment we have my PS3 hooked up to a 50 inch high definition television. There will be plenty of Madden 09 being played as well as Steelers tunes blasting from the stereo. In between Madden games there will beTerrible Towel waving and shouting at passing motorists.

I know, it sounds a little corny but hey, after a few beers, I think that we'll actually believe that we're cool. :chuckle:

The temp here in Pa. at gametime sholud be in the 20's. Factor in the wind chill from 10 to 15 mph, well you get the point. I'll think about you while I'm sitting in my family room with the woodstove fired up. :tt03::tt03::tt03::tt03::tt03::tt03::tt03:

I will be driving 3.5 hours from Washington, D.C. to my aunt's house in Oakland...grab some food there and head over to the stadium...it will be my first real Steelers game (one preseason game is my only other experience) and will be my girlfriend's first NFL game, so we plan on taking in the whole day and will probably walk around the entire stadium before kickoff.

Church in the morning...a little "divine intervention" doesn't hurt, right? :wink02:

Later will be heading to the sports bar to meet up with the Memphis Steeler Fan Club to watch the game.

I'll be at church in the morning
Home in time to change into my Steelers jersey - most likely #86 (but still considering 43)
Then I'll pick up a friend and head to O'Briens (home to the Tampa Steelers Fan Club - www.blackandgoldclub.net)

Start the day with a capt and coke, probably 2, and then screaming my freakin' head off at the screen.

I'll be sitting in our new Bufalo Wild Wings with about 50 other Steelers faithful, sucking down some wings and some brew. And like always, we'll outnumber the Charger fans even in their own backyard.

Don't know which jersey I'll have though, my Ben 75th Ann throwback has been bringing some good luck so I may have to use that one.

It'll be a full day as it's my daughter's 3rd birthday.

Since we live in Philly, we're inviting friends/family over to watch the Philly game. As soon as that ends, it'll be cake time, and then right into Steeler football!

Just going to watch it at home - I'm kinda anti social when it comes to football. I want to actually watch the game and NOT socialize :tt02: There's nothing worse than being around a bunch of loudmouths or having some drunk get up in your grill while you're trying to watch the game!! I'll be a bundle of nerves til it's over anyway lol

What are my plans for gameday? Heineken, Molson Golden, Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, Knob Creek 9 Year aged American Bourbon(100 proof), a nice blazing fire in the fireplace, and food(haven't decided exactly what to eat yet. That's a Friday job.).

Being from Southern Cal, I am hitting up a sports bar. Hopefully I see more Steelers fans than Chargers fans at the bar.

Over on the Chargers forums, I hear people call Steelers fan bandwagons.

But I never saw any Chargers fans in my life until they started winning.

01-08-2009, 06:24 PM
A balanced attack is the gameplan. Have to get the run game established early which will give Ben more room to pass using the play action. The D will go after Rivers, but secondary will play to force the Chargers to earn every yard and force longer, tiring drives down the field with pressure from someone on Rivers every down.

HAHHA. charger fans are funny bro. seeing you are from were im from LA, you should know that. when ever did you see folks wearing charger gear? NEVER. about 2-3 years ago , all of a sudden all the trolls and bandwagoners started showing up. Believe me here in LA there are tons of steeler fans. Im not sure what sports bar ill be going to but i for sure know were ever i go there will be steeler fans. :tt03:

This is exactly what i said on another thread. our key to winning sunday is to get FWP going.

I'd love to tailgate at my house, but in the cold North(Canada), too much snow right now, and I want to be alive for work the next day. Soooo, cooking up some baked Ziti, have my beers on ice, woodstove burning, and My wife wearing her Ben jersey, and me wearing my Woodley jersey sitting on my couch. Here we Go, Here we Go, Pittsburgh going to the Superbowl.

I'll go to the store and pick up a new Steelers hat, shirt or something, get the evil eye from all the bandwagon Chargers fans and knowingly smile at them as I walk back to my car. I'll come back home where my dog will be wearing his terrible towel. Most likely sleeping on the couch and using it as a blanket. The I'll start to pour myself some Captain and coke, and start blasting some Steelers music to piss off the bandwagon chargers fans that live near me. What do they expect it's supposed to be 80, I gotta open my windows, right?????
