Stadium #8 - Heinz Field, Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh, PA and Heinz Field were to be the site of my eighth stadium visit on the Quest for 31.It was a bitter cold December eve as we left Detroit right after work on a Thursday, bound for Pittsburgh, PA.We arrived in Pittsburgh just in time for kickoff but ended up stick in gametime traffic.It appeared that everyone decided to wait until the last minute to Heinz Field.When we finally arrived, we got a parking spot, high-tailed it over to the stadium, and proceeded to purchase one of Myron Cope’s Official Pittsburgh Steelers Terrible Towels.With the Terrible Towel in one hand and fantastic Primanti Bros sandwich in the other, I was ready to cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 27 -7 win over the Cleveland Browns.
