Last weekend was our second-annual pilgrimage to Pittsburgh for a Steelers game.  Lisa didn’t go this time because her back could do without the hours in the car, so her dad took her place.  We drove over on Saturday, arriving in the late afternoon.  We listened to the Vol/Crimson Tide game (link) on XM during the drive and then watched the disappointing ending at the hotel.  We stayed at the SpringHill Suites Pittsburgh North Shore.  It’s a nice hotel (the boys loved it because there was a Jacuzzi in the room), but you’re paying the big bucks for its location right down the street from the stadium.  Last year (link) we also stayed downtown but on the other side of the river.  I think we’ll probably save some cash and stay outside down during any future visits.  We had dinner in the hotel, the boys went swimming, and then we followed the Michigan St./Iowa game (and its disappointing ending, link) on the web while watching Mythbusters.

Sunday morning we ate breakfast, checked out of the hotel, moved the car to a public lot, and then walked to the stadium.  Here are a few photos:

The Steelers/Vikings game was a much better one (link) than the one we saw last year (meaningless game vs. the Browns, most notable event was the several minutes Ben spent on the turf before being removed on a stretcher).  It was a low-scoring affair until the amazing 4th quarter which featured a fumble recovery returned for a TD by the Steelers followed immediately by a kick-return TD by the Vikings followed a few minutes later by a pick-6 by the Steelers that sealed the victory.  The weather was beautiful (no clouds and warm, our necks and faces were sunburned).  After the game we walked back to the car and then hit the road back to MI.  Here are some more photos:
