I'm baaaccckkkkk....

Many thanks to my peeps for checking on me. My peeps that never leave a comment that is... One of these days, I'll actually hear from you on the blog instead of in my email :-) I've been away on a mini-vacation with a couple of my Sorors. We went to Pittsburgh to attend a wedding. As we prepared for takeoff out of Charlotte this is what we saw...

Now, I'm not the biggest sports junkie in the world but I just happen to be a Pittsburgh Steelers fan... I made the request of my traveling companions to be sure we drove by Heinz Field to get a picture of the Steelers home field before we left.
Needless to say, I did not have to make that request because this is where my soror had her wedding reception...





How could I have expected anything less! My soror and her new hubby are Steelers fans and of course, that had to be part of the celebration. Words cannot express my excitement to be in such a beautiful city AND home of the Steelers! Industrial cities are drastically different from where I live. Buildings take up an entire city block and they have REAL skyscrapers...
The temperature was perfect and consistently 10 degrees below the sweltering southern heat. For a brief moment, I was able to forget about lots of stuff on my plate here at the homestead and enjoy this beautiful getaway! Now I kinda know how sports fans feel about the passion and love they have for teams they actually follow and root for on the daily.
I just may become a REAL sports fan yet...
More to come later. I just wanted to get this out there so people would know I'm still alive and have bloggin on my mind!

All these years that i've known you...I neva knew that you were a Steeler fan. Well...I'm not. haaaa. But I didn't think that you liked football. Hmmmm.

Sounds like a good trip, tho. Welcome back.

@12kyle Yes, I'm a Steelers Fan and yes, I actually watched the entire game when they were in the Super Bowl. I have a jersey that I actually wear out in public. My students even know what teams I support. (1. Steelers and 2. the Carolina Panthers) Now you know, like football... Hmmmm...

@beautifully.conjured.up- I'm a proud Delta! Is there any other sorority?? Your mom and all of your aunts are good peeps!
You are good people too because you love the Steelers!

Beautifully.Conjured.Up said...

Yes, there is other sorority...The mother of ALL sororities :) I think you know what I'm talking about (as you can see, I'm the black sheep of the family).

Dione said...

Yeah, we did have a great time. It brings to reality the feeling that fans have when they live in a city with a team. That means I HAVE to go to Dallas one day. :-)
