Steelers Game in the Snow

I won the tickets.  We parked on the North Side for free and walked to Heinz Field.  We didn’t buy anything at the game.  Not a hotdog or a foam finger or even a plastic tray of nachos.  Nada!  A frugal effort to say the least.  We slipped and slid to the field on the untreated walks.  We got to the game and I had a purse with my camera. NOPE, even if it were empty, it could not enter the stadium.

Had to be see through plastic or a 4.5 x 6″ clutch. YIKES.  We walked half way back to the car and Steve put in in the V of a tree in the park.  It was to far to walk all the way back.  It was leather and I carry my camera in it and couldn’t just pitch it in the giant dumpster provided for such bags.  I don’t go to football games and didn’t realize the restrictions on bags.  PNC Park never banned my camera/purse.

On to the snow (the very wet snow) and the cold and the damp and the loss.  Yep.   The loss.

A high scoring, exciting game, though.  And disappointing.

We left before we could see the dismal end, the “almost greatest play ever” they said on the radio as we scraped the windshield and warmed up the car.  Came home for soup and tea and a hot shower and I was STILL cold!  But we had fun as best we could given the circumstances ie. weather.

Heinz Field in the BackgroundHere we are in front of Heinz Field.  Don’t ask why we are not wearing our gloves.  I have no idea!

Thanks random Steelers fan for photographing us!  Nice.

Pittsburgh in Snow and fog

Can you see Fort Pitt Bridge arch on the right?  The city skyline was totally obliterated by fog and snow when we first arrived.  If you stare you can see ghosts of the buildings.

Snow covered seats at heinz fieldSome fans stayed home. Watched it on television in a warm living room by the fire.

Potato Patch Satisfies Urge for Salt and Fat

Photographed at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin PA when the family was here this summer.

A nice couple let me photograph their fries. (with cheese)

The condiments still-life was from a different concession- The colors are what caught my eye.

And my son pointed out the pile of Idaho potatoes, catching the late day light.

The family was waiting to ride the Turtle.
