Even though it wasn't the best superbowl, getting the one for the thumb has to be number one on my list.

The 8PM home game in 2002 against Nebraska when we won 40-7. The excitement of the fans during that game proves why they don't like to have night games in Happy Valley!

I might be a girl, but that doesn't mean that I don't love sports as much as the guys. About 50% of my free time revolves around sports. My favorite radio station is ESPN AM radio and honestly I can't tell you my second favorite. During football season, the only way that you can talk to me during the game is if you are watching it with me. And things have become about the same way with Hockey. I'm in about 5 fantasy football teams each year and I'm the commissioner of two of them. I cheerleaded for 11 years of my life, and I loved the sport, but I also loved the fact that it gave me a front row seat to the action of the game. Yes I have my girly girl attributes as well, like purses and shoes, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy sports as much as any guy. It all depends on the situation whether you will see the girl or guy in me. And believe me, if my team is losing the game, you don't want to see the guy!! A Pittsburgh girl knows just as much about football as her guy friend in some cases, even more. She drinks beer because it tastes good but knows when to be classy and drink something more sophisticated. She owns a Steeler jersey not just because it's cute but because she supports her team and understands the game. She loves Kennywood and isn't afraid to order cheese fries from the Potato Patch because, let's face it......... Pittsburgh girls wear winter coats and scarves a lot more than bikinis and flip flops. A Pittsburgh girl loves St. Patrick's Day, even if she's not Irish because green beer is good for the soul. Pittsburgh girls don't have a funny accent. They just speak a different language. The word yinz is dear to her heart, even if she would never say it herself. A Pittsburgh girl bleeds black and gold and knows how to have a great time. She's stylish and sweet. She has a great education and loves her friends and family. A Pittsburgh girl goes to church on Sunday hung over, only to be let out by the pastor early because the Steelers kick off at one. A Pittsburgh girl might not live by the beach, but the Three Rivers are just as good! She has seen all four seasons and has a reason to love and hate each of them. She's the type of girl you can call late at night and spill your heart out to. She's the type you can take home to Mom and Dad without worrying they won't like her. Because everyone loves a Pittsburgh girl. If you need a girl to take to the game, she'll be there. If you need a friend to help you out, she's there. If you need a drinking buddy, she'll be there with her IC Light in hand. You can take the girl out of Pittsburgh , but you can never take the Pittsburgh out of the girl!!!!!
