Heading to Cincinnati this weekend with the family. Kings Island amusement park Saturday and Steelers vs Bengals Sunday baby! Some background. I've been a Steelers fan since mid 90s when I started getting into football in my early college years. Went to school in Williamsport PA where they were the featured home team. Fell in love with guys like Lloyd, Woodson, Lake, etc hammering the hell out of people when that was still part of the game. Settled in Rochester NY after college and married a long time Buffalo Bills fan. Our 2 boys are 11 and 10 and years ago when they were like 4 and 3 they looked at all the logos and my older boy goes with the Bucs (cool pirate thingy) and the little one goes with the Bengals (loves cats). A few years in and my older on wises up and jumps into Steelers Nation with me. I give my 10yr old credit for hanging in with the Bengals when it would have been easier to jump ship to a winning team. I wanted to take them to Pittsburgh, but with our mixed bag of fans the Steelers-Bengals match ups make the most sense and the Dec 30th game in Pittsburgh seemed like a bad idea for a few reasons. I got us great seats 25 rows back in line with one of the 40yd markers behind the Bengals bench. When we do get to go to Pittsburgh another year I'll get us close to their sideline if I can. This will be my second time seeing the team and their first. Looking forward to it, but I admit I am slightly nervous about taking 2 Steelers jerseys along with my Bengals fan into hostile territory. I've seen drunk idiots be relentless at games in Buffalo and age of their targets never mattered. Praying we see the Steelers team that took the field yesterday!
