This morning, we left for Heinz Field around 10:30am. Andrew dropped me off at Will Call to pick up the tickets.
Originally, I wasn’t sure about going to the game. We have been nonstop pretty much every weekend, but when my contact asked us if we wanted champions club tickets and a parking pass it was hard to turn down.
Once we were parked, we made our way inside the Champions Club entrance. It is probably the nicest club there is at Heinz Field. It is much nicer than the PNC club that we were in last weekend. We are getting spoiled with all these club seats! We walked out to the stadium seating. We were in section FC3. We were so close! Closer than I thought we would be.
I saw some familiar names. It was so cool to see them that close. I have met a few of the players, when I worked in the Sociology department.
We stayed outside until half time then we went inside into the air conditioning and cooled down a bit. The event’s manager of Heinz Field bought us a cocktail, so I had a goose and soda water.
When the second half got started, we stayed inside a little longer. The panthers weren’t doing so well.
At one point, I stepped outside and they were playing Neil Diamond’s song, “Sweet Caroline” (but there is a Pitt version). I recorded a little video and Drew came outside to sing the song. We were hoping they could pull a win. We are loyal to our Panthers!
At the end of the game, the Panther’s won! We leaned over the railing and high five the players. It was such a cool experience. I am hopeful to have those seats again soon. They play Duke next week in North Carolina. I can’t wait for the next Pitt game!
