Thought I would share my first trip to Heinz Field to see our beloved Bengals. I have traveled to many places to see the Bengals and Reds, but somehow never made it to Heinz Field. My buddy's girlfriend surprised him with Bengals/Steelers tickets for his X-mas gift (cool girlfriend obviously, many points scored there). Before you get too excited, he's a huge Steelers fan, well....nobody's perfect I guess lol He and I always watch the Bengals/Steelers game, so naturally he invited me along for the ride.....below I made sure to pack the essentials:
1) White "Away" #18 AJ Green jersey which I will proudly wear.
2) Case of beer and bottle of Maker's Mark whiskey (heats you up on a cold day.)
3) Long John's, thermal socks and anything else that looks like it could keep my a** warm.
4) A bad attitude lol Not really, but I'm not going to hold back just because we're away from home. I want this game just like all of you do.....Who Dey?!!
It's about a two-hour drive from where I currently live (just South of Cleveland) so isn't too bad. I will be taking pictures of us, tailgates, stadium pics, etc. and posting them on my next Fanpost which I'll appropriately title, "Part II." If anyone is going to the game or knows of some great hangouts, please do share....having never been there not really sure what to expect (other than some good-natured "ribbing" from Steelers fans). I plan on being excited and watching our boys lock-up a nice playoff spot while putting Pittsburgh's season on ice. Who Dey?!!! Stay tuned for Part II after we get back (maybe I should say "if" lol)....wish me luck! Let's go Bengals....
