View From 522: Steelers vs. Ravens (With Bonus Jeff Reed Story)

Since Gretz is a season-ticket holder, he’s going to take a look at the debauchery and insanity that takes place in the Heinz Field stands after every home game he attends. And yes, this is one very late in the week and yes it’s random thrown together. I mean even more than usual.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to subject you to the details of the game, because, well, by this point in the week it’s already time for the next game, which is of equal if not greater importance, and because I don’t feel like going through all of the details again. And because it’s 1:45 in the morning. And because I put this post off all week because I’ve tried to block that game out of my memory.

I will say that the crowd was pretty great again, for the second week in a row, and James Harrison and Antonio Brown played as well as anybody else on the field.

This sign, which is simply what appears to be a bed sheet with the number “78″ painted on it, has been in Heinz Field ever since Max Starks returned to the Steelers and it has moved around across various sections. On Sunday night it was positioned in the upper deck along the sidelines. Somebody is a Max Starks fan, and hey, with the way he’s played since returning, he deserves the props.

Actually, the most interesting thing that took place at a Pittsburgh sporting event I attended this week that included a (former) member of the Pittsburgh Steelers was at Fridays Penguins vs. Dallas Stars game. And, actually, this would probably be better filed under “View From Consol Energy Center Press Box,” (read me!) but whatever. Here we go.

For this story I turn it over to the Twitter Feed of Pittsburgh City Council Member Bill Peduto


In other words, just another Friday night for Jeff Reed. I didn’t actually see any of this happen, and I have no idea how I missed it, because that section is easily viewable from my seat in the media level, and it should have been easy to spot all of the action that was surely taking place, but yeah … how about that?

No word on what happened to the arena’s paper towel dispensers.
