This season, FanHouse writers take their cameras to NFL stadiums to document what happens when you stop being polite and start getting real. Or something. We've cleverly titled it "FanHouse in the Stands."
Sunday was the type of day that makes you feel alive as a football fan. If it doesn't make you feel alive, then it probably makes you feel like you're absolutely out of your mind for sitting through the elements.
After watching two consecutive home games get flushed down the toilet, we had the feeling that, for a third straight game, we would be leaving disappointed. Fortunately, the Steelers were able to pull out an 11-10 win (the only 11-10 game in NFL history, if you haven't heard that fact the previous 4,000 times it's been mentioned) making me a very, very happy person. Even in the frigid cold and snow.
Was the win pretty? No. But they don't give you style points, and I think I speak for everyone when I say, thank God for that.
