Wow. Without Ben Rothlisburger, the Pittsburgh Steelers trounced Tampa Bay 38-13. One of the many great moments in the Steelers victory over Tampa Bay today was Charlie Batch connecting with Mike Wallace for a 46-yard-TD. VIDEO
Awhile a back I had made a friend, Steve, watching Steeler Football. I’m from Pittsburgh and a lifetime fan. Out "Steeler spot" closed. It was a popular gathering place for many Pittsburgh Steeler loyal. This particular acquaintance and I met somewhere new – Yagers in Folsom – to catch the season opener today against the Houston Texans. The doors were locked, nobody home at Yagers. Steve, thinking quickly called a neighbor friend that he knoew was hooking up the game in his garage. Watching the game in lawn chairs in our new friend’s garage. Do you love it? It was a great time. And a cool coming together as Pittsburgh fans do – with nothing in common but a love and loyalty for a hometown and it’s much beloved team.
P.S. The owner of the restaurant and bar were sorry to have missed us. You bet we’re going to see if this can be the new Steeler spot. We’ll see if they can get some breakfast going for us Pacifc time zone fans.
