The leaves are turning, the air has a bite, it must be that time of year. Time for the family tailgate at a Steelers game! It is going down tomorrow and I am pretty excited. I made a new tailgating CD and I am pretty proud of it. It includes all the old standards (Here We Go Steelers, some Pittsburgh Steelers polkas, NFL FIlsm excerpts) and some new ones I found such as "Stairway to Seven", "Put a Ring on It" (All the Steelers ladies, All the Steelers ladies), and some other unique 'Burgh hits.
We have two Gold Lot passes and are expecting about 25 people, it is going to be a great time. I have high expectations for a Steelers win and it is with tempered excitement that I am looking forward to Ben's return to the team. I think he is a great quarterback and will help the team, but I am still appalled at his off the field behavior and demonstrated horrible decision making. From the motorcycle w/ no helmet to even being in a college bar, he just comes across as immature and lacking common sense. I hope that he has grown up during this forced absence and that the fans will welcome him back... becuase he earns it and proves his worth. This city is his oyster if he can overcome his ego and selfishness. Here is to hoping he has.
Regardless of the type of person Ben truly is, it is going to be one hell of a party tomorrow and I can't wait. Go Steelers!
