I love the Pittsburgh Steelers and I have been one of the fans that have been able to forgive Ben Rothlisberger and embrace him as our quarterback. Big Ben is a great team leader and statistically is every bit as good as Aaron Rodgers. However, nobody “looks” better than Aaron Rodgers throwing a football. He is the Jerry West of the NFL and his silhouette could be the logo for the NFL in the same way that West is for the NBA. This picture was taken at Heinz Field during a pre-season game last Sunday.
The Steeler defense still needs some work although some players like Heywood and Shazier looked great in yesterday’s pre season game against the Packers The first team offense looked good and although it was hot, the crowd was rowdy and ready for football.
I love modern architecture when the sun sets creating unique patterns. I took a few pattern images in Chicago a few years ago along the Chicago River. This the first one I have done in Pittsburgh. Shot from PNC Park during a Bucs game.
I love going to Pittsburgh Pirate games. I have loved the Bucs since the sixties and at one point had an apartment on Atwood street just two blocks from Forbes Field. On our return to Pittsburgh we promised ourselves we would go to some games and have been to a few this year with another coming up in a couple of weeks. The park is comfortable and with a great scenic view of Pittsburgh behind it. There is also an excellent selection of ballpark food and beer.
Although a major league park and now again a Pennant contender, PNC Park has the feel of a minor league ballpark as well. Between innings there is a wide variety of looniness that takes place. You may see the Perogie Race on TV but not much more. This is a picture of the Hot Dog shoot. Yup in Pittsburgh they shoot encased meats into the stands as well as t-shirts and the staff seems to love it.
