I'm new to this site but not to being a Steelers fan! I'm 45 and the first Steelers game I watched was the Immaculate Reception game with my uncle who was visiting from Pittsburgh at the time. He got me started. As you can imagine my 11 yr old son loves the Steelers as well. I've promised to take him to a game this year. The last game I went to was in the mid 90's at Three Rivers. My wife and I drove from Worcester, MASS and everyone we met couldn't have been nicer!
I'm zeroing in on the late Oct. game this year against the Vikings to try to get to. My question to all you road trippers out there or residents of the Steel City is: Is it too risky to head to Pittsburgh and expect to get tickets around the stadium or do I have to pay 3 to 4 times the face value from say Stub Hub and get piece of mind that we're all set when we leave Massachusetts? ( I hate the Patriots by the way, I call them the Tape - tree - otts ) Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks - Jeff
