Similar to toppling a statue of an historical figure. I don't like either act.

We will be Acri-sure to miss the playoffs this year if the offense isn't clicking...

Acrisure Stadium? ? I've been to 20+ Steelers games at Heinz Field, including the first-ever regular season game there in 2001 (still have my commemorative medallions and ticket stubs), the 2002 comeback playoff win over the Browns, and countless other memorable moments with family and friends. It will always -- ALWAYS -- be Heinz Field to me. ??

Three Rivers was hardly a palace but it was the site of Steeler greatness. Provided unforgettable memories.
It will always be my favorite arena. Heinz is way too open and not half as loud and intimidating as Three Rivers. Providing much less of a home field advantage. The 70s at Three Rivers will not be topped in my lifetime.

Agreed 100%. Three Rivers will always be my first love. I used to love the way the stands would literally rock and bounce underneath you when the crowd would jump up and down during big moments of the game. And to your point, SOOO much louder than Heinz Field. Don't get me wrong, I love Heinz, too, especially the view of downtown and Mt. Washington. But IMO, Three Rivers was better in every other way.

My seats were on the upper level about 3 rows from the top on about the 30 yard line on the visitors side of the field. I like to watch the plays develop from altitude rather than sit closer to the benches.

I thought the stands were going to collapse during and after the immaculate reception. Mayhem, bedlam and a bit of blood was spilled in my section. It was marvelous but also a bit frightening.

My initial season tickets were Noll's first year and at Pitt stadium. Cardiac hill was easy when I was in my 20's. Not so much now at my age. I was happy with the switch to Three Rivers. The team won Noll's first game and that was it for the season. However, the glory days were soon to follow.

I miss the Burgh, its culture and our family. But life is good in Pawleys Island. We are headed to Europe for a couple of weeks later this month and the family is coming to take over our house. Saves them a lot of cash on their annual beach rental house and gives me piece of mind. Not a bad trade. When we get back we will be hit with a sad anniversary. Diversions are welcome but don't make up for the loss. We will likely take another 2-3 week trip over the Christmas/New Years holiday season. Holidays at home at still pretty painful and escapes seem to help. Hope the family is up for some beach action then as well.

Ctown. Hope you are settling in well in your new burbs. We only hit Charleston on rare occasions for some medical stuff. And that is mostly in Mt Pleasant. I'm not a big fan of the traffic in the city. A grandchild is a blessed thing. It's good you are there to enjoy the experiences. Thanks to God for the blessings.

Sandfan - Yes, we are settled in and actually making plans to put our "stamp" on the new home. This area has been built very nice and it is secluded and has very little traffic. I would say they could use a few more grocery stores but I heard plans are in the works. Oddly, no local golf courses either, although everyone seems to own a golf cart. I guess its the new fad.

We haven't had time to go downtown yet, maybe in the upcoming weeks. Yes, the anniversary is approaching and my wife mentioned maybe getting away for that week. maybe Hilton head, which we like a lot.

DBs,

I don't know if this is related but a Steeler minority owner has ties to Acrisure.

Also in Pittsburgh, Mark Belko notes Acrisure has "ties to Steelers minority owner Thomas Tull" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 7/11). Tull in a statement said, “This is great partnership and will have a tremendous impact on both organizations as well as the greater Pittsburgh community. The Steelers and Acrisure share the same core values of winning and excellence and I could not be prouder to be partnered with both” (SBJ).

A web domain and Twitter handle have “already been secured.” Acrisure specializes in "insurance, reinsurance, real estate, cyber services and Asset Management.”

Agreed. I don't want any of Michigan's losing ways seeping into Pittsburgh's water.  Sick
