    I'm going to either the Jets or Eagles game. Driving up from NC.

    What games are folks here planning on going to?

    I'm originally from Pitt, but haven't tailgated at a Stiller game in a looong time.

    Any advice on that front would be great, are there any good spots to congregate, hangout? I'd love to mingle w/the crowd w/my wife and son before the game to give them a taste of stiller football..in the past i've always come up by myself or w/uncle/cousins who are from the burgh. We'll likely walk over from a dahntahn hotel.

    Which by the way Hotwire offers some great deals for dahntahn hotels (no affiliation, i've just used them alot and usually save 1/2 off the price).

    Go Stillers! :herewego:

    I might be going to the Jets game. As far as tailgating...there are TONS of people and tailgating going on in the stadium lots...if you dont know someone who'll be there ahead time and setup to meet with them to tailgate...you can at least walk around there and get the feel/experience from it.

    Going to the redskins game. My 3rd time to Pittsburgh but first 4 the kids. Can't wait. We try to get to one a year but living in Iowa makes it a bit more difficult.

    Eagles, Jets, Ravens, and Redskins for sure. Kicking around a trip to Dallas. Plus a friend of mine hosts a couple of tailgate blow outs a per season and he'll invite us old neighborhood buddies to one of them. If its a game that I don't have tix, he gets them for us. He usually sets up shop in one of the Gold lots, right next to the players lot. Thats pretty cool as we watch the players funnel in and get to see who drives what.

    As far as the other games, I usually don't tailgate, but rather hit one of the local bars for lunch and some beers beforehand. Finnegans Wake, Soho, or the Tilted Kilt are usually our destinations.

    Coming in with a bunch of fam for the Redskins game. Can't wait! We usually make it in for a game every year, but the last few years it's been late in the year. So it'll be awesome to be there in October when (hopefully) the weather is decent. Will make a weekend out of it and hit Strip District, Primanti's, Bettis's place...gonna be awesome!!

    Wife and I going to Bengal game 12/23. Hopefully game means something/they win/weather is good. Not sure where to park. This will be my second time. Both against the Bengals. Saw them in 2007 on a Sunday night. Maybe this one is for the division and gets flexed to Sunday night? I had a hotel room that night with a shuttle. This time it is for a day trip so got to figure out where to park so can get in there and out without any trouble. Anyone know much about driving to Station Square and parking there and then taking the boat over? Seems cool/not the expensive from what I have seen on the web. Not sure of the official prices though for parking there and for the boat shuttle over? Anyone know?

    I had Redskin tickets through the ticketmaster open house that one Saturday morning a couple of months ago. First time I ever got through. I screwed up though and went looking for a better deal and I saved them as a draft in my shopping cart not knowing that even though I saved them there they would be released. By the time I realized I coudn't fine anything better I went to check them out and they were gone. Was so pissed. Then is couldn't find anything else. Everything was gone. Was so mad at myself. A couple of days later I was messing around on ticketmaster site and looking at all the games and the individual seats left. I was resigned to the fact that I wasn't going to be able to go since the ones on Ebay and so forth are too expensive. I was looking at the single seats left for the Bengal game and I found two together. Same section. Same row. They are just seat #5 and seat #7. I snatched them up. Worse case scenario there will be some stranger between my wife and I (LOL). Hopefully the seat is empty or someone with some seats around there messed up and bought that one by mistake or something. Figure we will just ask if one of us can switch seats withthem so my wife and I can sit next to each other.

    Not sure it's in my budget this year. :(

    I promised my wife a "second honeymoon" for our 20th anniversary this year (rapidly approaching). So most of my fun money is going to that.

    Wish I'd had the foresight to get married in, say, October instead of August. :doh:

    But if we host a playoff game, I might have to beg my wife, er, I mean, find the money to go. hehe

    DUDE! There's always divorce! I KEEEED!!! I KEEEED!!! Congrats on 20 years though. That's very good this day and age. I just can't believe that she doesn't consider a Sunday at Heinz a really romantic occasion.

    No regular season for me this year because my daughter's want to go to Pens game (will be our first) but we are going to the last preseason game vs. the Panthers (35.00 for tix so if its a crappy game we can leave and not be out a ton of money). Will be odd not to go to a game though as I try to go every year....

    I got tickets to the Chiefs MNF game. I think the Chiefs are a sleeper team this year, so should be good.

    Oh, she loves going to Steeler games. I had long ago converted her to being a Steeler fan. But she didn't really care to see a game live. She'd always politely decline and suggest I take a friend.

    I finally go her to go see a game with me for the Divisional playoff game against the NYJs in 2004. She was... in awe. She wasn't prepared for the energy of the crowd and intensity. Forget that it was cold as hell, she had a blast. And... she couldn't wait to get home. ;)

    So yeah, going to a game is a good trip for her. Just not the right time of year to coincide with our anniversary.

    I am planning a trip from Az with a couple buddies for the Washington game but having problems finding affordable tickets. They have never been to a real football game. They have seen the Cardinals but that doesnt count. It will be my third time but it has been 11 years.

    I live in Kansas city. I am going to my first ever game in the burgh to see the eagles game! Can't wait! Have my airfare and hotel booked. Anyone know the hotel that steelers stay in the night before the game?

    Cheers!!!

    Wife, kids and I try to go to at least 2 games every year (for the past 35 years). Driving down from Jefferson County. Got tix for the Panthers pre-season game & the Chargers December 9th-- this will prob be my last game. My vision isn't what it used to be, I can't see at night. It's getting too dangerous.
