Go Steelers (See Jane Root)


When you marry someone, it's only fair that you'll have to expose yourself to some of their interests (and that they do the same for you).  Enter football:  Eric and his family share a fervent love for the Steelers.  I think the game in itself alright (and actually grew up with Browns and Lions fans), but I've never been a huge fan.  (However, the dips, and other various snack foods, are something that I can really get behind.)

I spent this past weekend in Pittsburgh with Eric and my in-laws for the game on Sunday.  Pittsburgh is a charming city that's chock full of American history (plus, it's the most recent Gotham City in the newest Batman movie) and I always like to visit a city that I've never been (any travel is good travel in my eyes). I enjoyed strolling around, learning about a new city and of course, eating $8 nachos at an NFL game.


How was your weekend?

  7. So awesome. My BF is a Jets fan (and by fan I mean he's OBSESSED). So I totally know about incorporating football into one's life.

  13. Ah! I live n Pittsburgh and love it here. The cost of living is so cheap, for living in a city. I've also created a Weekend Tour of Pittsburgh which includes many of the top tourist spots...

  14. Before I'd met my boyfriend, I'd never sat through an entire football game. But I've since discovered that football is a genius excuse to lounge around in comfy clothes on chilly Sundays drinking beer and eating comfort food. The Patriots are also the perfect reason to host a Sunday party complete with my favorite seven layer dip. Now all I need is a super flattering fan tee like this one.

  15. Gotta love football! My fiance is a huge Bears fan. Every Sunday our house is strictly football! I prefer the yummy food that goes with it to the actual game.

  18. Expanding your boundaries is always a good idea ^^ I don't even know what American Football exactly is. I can barely understand our own soccer. BUT cheap food is always a plus! x

  28. Just moved to Pittsburgh from Cleveland. My boyfriend is a huge steeler's fan and I followed suit. I love the burgh!

  29. I'm a new reader - and I have to say I'm so jealous you got to go to a Steeler's game in Pitts! I'm a huge Steelers fan and only got to see them when they did a pre-season game in Atlanta. Not quite the same. ;-) You look cute in your fan gear! :-)
