I have never been so UN-fired up before at a Steelers Event. Pompianni (sp) and Ken Rice were TERRIBLE. They couldn't get the audio right for that country singer.

Is Dan Onorato and Steelerstahl ever not together? Who is our mayor?

Roger Wood needs to learn how to lip sing. IT WAS AWFUL!

The Clarks were good. I enjoyed listening to Farrior.

I will never attend an event like this again in the future. Maybe I am spoiled from attending games and I understand it was a great chance for little kids and their families to attend and it gives those people that don't have a chance to go to Heinz. They could have done a much better job. I'm glad it only cost me $5

So I don't know. GO STEELERS

I would say same amount as 05. Like section said whole lower level. A lot of people were standing and walking around too.

Here are my comments on the pep rally. Im Die Hard Steelers so take my comments as constructive critsiscm i would never bash any part of the organization.

Positives:
1. Had a good time Tailgating and met some cool people. (As i always do at games)
2.A good bit of the players did actually show up.
3. 3 bucks to park i was at Grill 36 first so i didnt have to pay 5. Regardless They could charge 10 and 5 to get in and people would have payed it.
4. Again like section said it gave a lot of people who dont have tickets, cant get tickets, or dont wanna pay that kinda money for tickets a chance to be a part of it.
5. The Clarks were good.
6. I got to see the Renegade video again. I went to every home game besides 2 i couldnt make it too. Everytime i see this i get goosebumps. (If you have not seen this i suggest you go to youtube and check them out)

7. Gorgeous Night

Negatives.

1. Is it just me or did the playes seem like they just kinda walked out in street clothes. Slapped some hands with high school kids, Said a few things and that was it. Now with that being said i understand their is bigger stuff on their plate than a pep rally and they are getting ready for a big game.

2. I love Tunch and those guys but they do not excite me at all. In terms of getting the crowd pumped. We got ourselves pumped.

3. My Home Theater System was better than the PA system they had going on.
(again technical difficulties.)

4. I heard the worst version of here we go steelers song ever at the end of the Pep Rally. (again due to PA system.)

5. I had the worst waitress ever at Grille 36, It was busy but i used to manage a restaraunt and it was just bad. Its not all her fault. Its the day of the pep rally and you have 1 girl doing the whole bar. (This really has nothing to do with the pep rally just me bitching.)

All in All i had a great time and HERE WE COME TAMPA

Wow... Bunch of Debbie downers... I had a great time, free clarks concert.. Yea the jumbotron and pa system were out of synch...

It was almost exactly like they had in 2005... Except the clarks instead of povertyneck hillbillies (thank god)

It was a beautiful evening, people in my section were bopping around beach balls... Nice to hear from the players.

Those folks who didn't like it, then certainly DO NOT go to the parade if we win..

Wish I could have been there. I read the Post this morning and it looked like everyone had a good time. A few problems, a short time to organize, oh well. I wanted to get on the web cast as advertised by Steelers.com and WDVE. I couldn't wait until I got home to log on.
Nothing happened. I tried evrything I knew. Even had my Geek wife work on it. Nothing. She knew I was bumed out about it. I told her what she could do for the Nation, but that didn't happen either. Oh well.

The negativity around here is sickening. Folks - we're headed to the Super Bowl for God's sake. WTH did you expect for 5 bucks - a flyover and 21 gun salute? :doh:
