i jumped off my couch and threw out my elbow swingin my towel around. Troy stamped their tickets to Tampa with that catch, and the run back was the icing on the cake.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing 65,000 fans celebrating the Steelers punch their tickets to the Super Bowl :applaudit:

I was in 101 Row L which is the last row in the bottom section. Troy Scores, so I jump over my seat, high five all of row M. Run up the steps on one side, high five the entire section, run to the top of the section, high five the last row, pick up some lady in a fur coat, put her down, run down the other side of the steps and high five everyone. Then I begin running around the walk way, high-fiving everyone in the front of the rows, by the time I know it, I am down to the opposite 30 yard line (section 101 is open end endzone) So I continue high fiving everyone on the way back, get back to my seat. By this time, Clark lays out Willis, we recover the fumble. I go nuts again. I then regained my breathe and relaxed for a second while willis is tended to. Then, as ben takes the final knee, I sing the HERE WE GO song with 65000 people, and then run from my section, all the way to 123 were one of my good friends was sitting in the opposite endzone, and the only way to get to the other endzone is by going up about 6 ramps. I made the entire trip while holding up my "Steel-City Six-Pack sign and high fiving everyone that walked past me. IT was intense, it was awesome, I will never forget it. The best part was waving good bye as Raven fans walked out. HAHAHA I LOVE IT!

That was awesome, I wish I could be there. I was jumping up and down with my family screaming, giving each other high fives, and waving our towels. And telling our brother in law that we will see his team in the Superbowl.

I think my exact words after screeming and high fiving everyone and shaking my towel like it was a salt shaker.

"Who the profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilter is Ed Reed"

Oh that just made my day! I was there and can I tell you that is a VERY accurate portrayal of what it was like in the stands.

It was pandamonium! Screaming at the top of my lungs. Once he made it into the endzone the first thing I did was scan for a flag on the field after that it was ^5s and hugging of EVERYONE.

When you sit with the same group of people year after year, it's like a family. After I celebrated with my husband and our friends who were in our other seats, I immediately started looking for my best bud who sits a few seats away from me. At the exact same time I saw him turn and look for me. He gave me a huge bear hug and said "were going to the super bowl darlin'!". That for me was such a great moment that epitomized why I love the Steelers and why our fans are the best. We truly are like family.

I'm getting all sentimental again just thinking about it. I am so happy that I was there for that. I thought I had recorded the game on my DVR but I didn't and that was the one moment I wanted to see.

If anyone knows were I can find the whole game can you send me a PM. Thanks!

:toofunny:.........that was about what our Steelers bar looked like! I don't think there were too many drinks left not spilled all over the tables! I never hugged so many strangers in my life!

I was there too & just got tears in my eyes reliving that moment. 1 of the greatest days in my life! The funny thing is, is if I recorded that moment mine would sound exactly the same. Thanks for posting!

I was in section 533 FF, and that interception and return for a TD was sheer pandemonium all around us. I hugged my wife, the guy behind me, the couple in front of me, high-fived everyone, and was totally surrounded by people doing the same thing in a different order.

That game was the most enjoyable sporting event I've ever seen live, and I've seen a bunch in my 40 years, covering a lot of teams and sports. The whole day leading up to the game, watching the NFC game at the red dog/red bull lounge, whatever it is beside the Hard Rock with a bunch of friends, the boat ride over before the game, the boat ride back, everything! I've been floating on a cloud since Sunday.

When Troy got the INT, the whole house was screaming, and, in the aftermath, all I could think of to say was, "Suck it, Shannon Sharpe." 'Cause of what he said in the pre-game... I was still ticked about that... LOL

I jump up screaming..."YEAH, YEAH, YEAH"

And as he's crossing the 20...."WERE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!!" over and over again.

And my wife screaming " I KNEW IT, I KNEW TROY WAS GOING TO GET A PICK!!"

Apparently she called it right after Shannon Sharpe dissed him on the pregame show. But I was too nervous to hear it.

I've never wished I was at a Steelers game more than that moment...WOW!

Awesome vid. I was thinking there is only 5 minutes left, we have a lead and the D has held tough all year. I told my Son "Somebody is fixin to make a big play. Polly needs to get a pick 6" Then he did, it was total kaos right there in my living room. My Son immediately said "I guess that guy that picked Reed feels stupid now". At first i didnt even know what he was talkin about, then he refreshed my memory and i started screaming all over again... LOL

This is the fun of Sports, rehashing the feeling.
DAMN I LOVE THE STEELERS
