"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

‘Twas the Night Before Superbowl, Fans Asleep in Their Beds-Visions of a 7th Ring, Float in Their Heads

But not overconfident. Just hopeful.  And the Packers fans are dreaming the same vision I’m sure.  (Actually photographed Thursday night Feb 3rd.)

Settling Down for a Long Winter’s Nap

And then you turn on the TV-
warm up
for the big game.
Have to wait all weekend long.
A two hour delay for Monday–
school, already called!

View of Homestead Over the Mon

Heard Giant Eagle was packed and fans are loading up their carts with salsa, ribs and Tostitos and chips.   Iron City and Yuengling, some Penn Pilsner at the Beer Distributor– you can’t purchase beer in the grocery store in Pennsylvania.  Fans are careful to follow rituals and are aware that their actions might jinx the outcome. Some can’t stand to watch.

    Good vibes for a Steeler victory are on a continuous broadcast cycle from . . . Niceville, FL!

    Go STEELERS!

    Oh, you are so right about our rituals Ruthie. I listen to the game on WDVE and watch the TV with the sound off. The one time I didn’t do that, we lost to the Ravens.

    Great photo today. Love it.

    My ritual – I don’t watch the game cause if I did I’d probably die of a heart attack. I’ll be in my bed, under the covers. . .waiting.
