    Why on God's green earth that you guys didnt petition to have a roof put on the Stadium??? I'm deathly scared of being outside in any weather for an extended amount of time below 40 degrees. Anybody a pansy like me?? or is it just me??

    By the way....this thread was inspired by a potential trip to the Steelers -Chiefs game in late Dec which will practically be a night game and I know they dont have a roof and I'm discouraged because if it.

    I wish those old guys I use to see at Pitt stadium sitting on wooden bleachers in snow storms could see this.

    I'd probably go to more games if they had a dome. The older I get the more I say **** the cold.

    The roof means turf instead of grass. In my opinion that doesn’t go with the ground and pound “steeler way”. I feel turf leads to more injuries too ACLs and concussions

    Monday is the first day of buck season here in Pennsylvania. The high temp is going to be around 34°, there will be thousands of hunters out all day and enjoying it.

    You might need to explain the toque to them since most Yinzer's aren't fluent in Canuck but will laugh their ass off if you call soda, pop.

    What are you afraid of if I may ask? This seems a strange phobia

    I think Troy really enjoyed the real grass of the field and would practice barefoot to get a better feel.

    That being said I swear that one of the new indoor stadiums had the field on a conveyor system where they could move it outside into the sun and water it. There is a rabbit hole I can see myself going down soon.

    Went to the Browns game 5 years ago and was expecting snow. Wore my jersey and some wool base layers. had me good boots on and a down coat. Of course it was a day game had to take layers off in the sun.

    We were ready for the cold though.

    Last game I’ve been to was vs Green Bay when Ben threw the last second TD pass to Mike Wallace. It was like 15 degrees. Froze my n*ts off but it was sooo worth it.

    I was just being extra...I dont like the cold but Im really not that bad in it as long as I'm moving around. My boot camp was in late fall to early winter and a lot of bivouac"s were in middle of winter so I'm definitely use to being out in the cold. I've also been in the midwest all my life. I'm more concerned if I sit around that amount of time and they lose...six and a half hour trip....I need them to win and I need that win to mean something so hopefully they're still playing for something when the game rolls around.

    If you dress properly in layers, the cold won't bother you.
