WOW... Took my buddy to his first Steelers game yesterday....It was his birthday as well. We started by watching the players come in, there instrcted by the coaching staff to only talk but not sign anything. Well they have some SWEET ass rides!!! No other way to put it. Ben drove his silver BMW. Marvel has a AWESOME Silver Hummer with Huge RIMS. Carter had his GREEN machine. But the most common car drove by Steelers is Chevy Tahoe, of course decked out versions were also present. As well as Hummers. Russ Grimm came in and parked his truck. He came over and signed my mini helmet. Anyway we headed into the GREAT HALL, just before the DOWNPOOR. Got some Lube wings and sat down and enjoyed the band, that was playing where they filmed the late Bettis show. They announced the game was postponed 15 minutes. Well atleast we were dry and checking out the sites. The NEW SuperBowl XL display is SWEET as well. We watched the Steelers battle it out and unfortunetely lose.... BUT No injuries and the first team looked GOOD. Now the fun began. We headed out and went over to where the players come out to see if we could get a few autographs. Well i started thinking!!!! Ok scary thought... I decided to get my mini helmet signed by coaches ONLY. What a great idea..I got.... Russ,Whiz,Spencer,Colbert,LaBeau,Perry,Whipple,Mit chell,Hoak,Daniel,Arians and last but not least COWHER..Very neat one of a kind, the coaches all thought it was a GREAT idea. Coolest thing is Whiz asked for my opinion of the game. He stood there and bullshitted for about 5 minutes, AWESOME.....Not many of the players would sign(usually that way if the lose) Then it happened.....the head of security was like HEY come here. I was like me? he said yeah...Well me and my friend went and he took us into there team lot. RUSS was having a tailgate party!!! he threw us a brew and said WELCOME! I was like WOW....My buddy was in awe....Well there was Faneca, Haggans, Kriedwalt, Nua, Farrior,Wallace,Phillip(the new center),Logan,Hoke,Smith,Kiesal. They were all chillin and grubbing and drinking beers. Sat there for about 45 minutes just chilling with them. They all signed my Gameday Program. It was so cool to chill with them in a relaxed moment. Haggans was busting me up, you could tell he was getting a buzz. He was like If i have to sign that stupid picture of me at the superbowl again I am going to sign somebody elses name....LOL. Alan was really a quiet guy just standing there drinking a beer. Nua was funny as well. All in all it was a TOTAL BLAST just hangin with the BLACK N GOLD, Figured I would share the moment.....GO STEELERS
