Our Football Anniversary
It all started with a trip to Morgantown to watch WVU take on the University of Cincinnasti. WVU topped the Bearcats 37-10. It was the first time the Mountaineers had beaten UC since 2007.
After a night in Morgantown we jumped in the car and drove north to Pittsburgh to see the Steelers play the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
This may be the coolest picture of all time, btw.
Here are the SNF announcers... Chris Collinsworth and Al Michaels.
Local Steeler analysts John Fedko and Alby Oxenreiter.
Mrs. Little Cat with her favorite Lombardi trophy. She picked this one because she lived in Pittsburgh when the Steelers won it during the 2005 season.
Here I am with the 2008 Lombardi trophy.
The scoreboard reads, "WR Hines Ward has caught at least one pass in a Steeler record 186 consecutive games." Guess what Hines Ward didn't do in this game? Yeah. Believe it or not he was knocked out of the game with a concussion in the first quarter and did not have a reception.
Here's our seats.
We're cute. Awww.
The Steelers ended up losing the game 39-26 and it really wasn't even that close. Big Ben was horrible. Hines was hurt. Tom Brady was taking out his long haired aggression on the Steeler defense. It was ugly.
We still had a great time.
Happy football anniversary to my wife!
