My sister and brother-in-law, Steeler fans from Northeastern PA, planned a trip out to visit while their team was in town to play the Cardinals. They’ve been out to visit on several occasions and even had the opportunity to see the 49ers, Eagles, and Steelers play here in the past. With the Cardinals in a rebuilding year led by a new coach and rookie QB, … Continue reading Heinz Field West!
The Steelers certainly endured some drama last year. First with Le’Veon Bell sitting out the year, then Antonio Brown airing his grievances in public.

The Lions started the 2017 campaign 2-0, defeating MAC opponent Akron … Continue reading Penn State and the Steel City!
