So my 10-year old son and I are coming in next Saturday for the Minnesota game, first Steelers game for him and first home game for me. We're staying nearby to the north and I'm planning on getting their early.

What's the earliest we can get to the Stadium?

Is it better to catch a ride there or find an early parking spot?

Truly can't wait to hang out in the Steel City for the weekend and watch Silverback harrass Favre all day!

You can go to the stadium pretty early, there's always stuff to do/try (your son can try throwing a ball around, or kicking a field goal etc). Some food options outside (think fair type food stands). I believe you can actually enter the stadium 3 hours prior to game time.
Don't have much experience parking wise (as I always come from out of town), but the exodus after the games with the people parking close by seems to be quite the ordeal.
Personally if you're going early to the game, I'd hang around Station Square, maybe grab some food and check out the Incline, then take the ferry across to the game.

Have a great time! It will be a great experience for your son.

Sounds good, probably will do that and just catch a cab to the hotel afterwards.
