Wow
When is the last time a professional team did that? .... fly in to town, day of game?

Well, that's one way to shake up our travel routine.

Yea usually the visiting team is required to be there 24hrs before the game... So is this an advantage or not?

well, they get to sleep at home another night - then take a 1hr plane ride, but you know how they hate changes in their routine

maybe this will piss them off as much as having to wear those throwbacks and come out fired up

I gotta believe living in NY right now after Sandy is way more disruptive to one's routine than having to fly an hour on the morning of a game on a charter plane.

Class by the Steelers brass - Rachel Nichols



Team official said once hotel they'd planned to stay at Saturday closed due to power loss, "we decided we just didn't feel right about asking employees at [the open] hotels to start making a bunch of extra efforts to accommodate us, when so many of them are having issues themselves. There are a lot of very difficult things going on for a lot of people in that area; us having to fly in and out on the same day as a football game is no hardship in comparison."

Which is why The Rooneys are so great.

Conversely, Jerry Jones called Bloomberg & asked for a penthouse to be fixed up for him, just in case he wants to see "Cats" for the fourteenth time. What a douche.
