bigdogg2277 Posted September 11, 2010 Share Posted September 11, 2010 The wife and I arrived in Pittsburgh around 2pm today, it's now 8:30pm and we have yet to see any Falcons fans, whats the deal? The city is beautiful up here and the Steelers fans have been great so far. We took a relaxing riverboat cruise when we arrived at our hotel and just got back from a good buffet at the local casino. One thing that is clearly evident is that the Steelers faithful are out in full force two days before the game.Everybody has on Steelers jerseys, shirts, hats etc. I wish when I was down in the ATL that our fans would show this type of support for our team. Now I'm sure there are a bunch of us that show our colors down in Atlanta but it would be really cool if half the city was decked out in jerseys two days before game day.The best way to get to the game on Sunday in my opinion would be by boat. The wife and I are staying at the Sheraton hotel in Station square. Right next to the hotel is a fleet of boats called the Gateway Clipper Fleet. Three hours prior to kickoff for a $10 roundtrip ticket you can board the boat and it will take you across the river to Heinz field. One hour after the game you can board the boat for your return trip. This seems to be a good way to avoid traffic and parking issues.For any Falcons fans who have not arrived in Pittsburgh or are here, start showing your pride and get your colors on. The Steelers fans know their football but are realistic and the ones I have spoken with seem to think the Falcons will win. I'm not worried about the Steelers offense but their defense is still very good. Turner will have his work cut out for him but the key is our passing attack. The Steelers defense is weak against the pass so it looks like to set up the run we need to use the pass to not have 8 in the box all day.Thats my input so far from the steel city. Heniz field looks like a beautiful stadium from our boat ride this afternoon and judging from the cool people here, gameday looks like it will be a fun and very exciting time. I look forward to a hard fought battle between our Falcons and the Steelers but I see a win in our future with a score of about 24-10. RISE UP...GO FALCONS!!!!
