That’s what my husband calls me around this time of year. Yes that’s right football season! I just love it. I can’t tell you why, but I do. And having one of the best husband’s, yes I acknowledge he is in the creme de la creme grouping of men, he purchased for my birthday Steeler, Panther exhibition tickets.
The stadium is very well kept and has a convenient lay out , if you visit a lot of stadiums that is, and being married to a Sports writer I do. It’s coridoors are large and it’s easy to find your way around. It’s biggest plus – the bathrooms are plentiful and clean. I didn’t even have to stand in line at half time, now that’s well planned. The whole stadium looks new and it’s been around since the late 90’s.
We were evacuated to wait in the open air concourse area because of a rapidly approaching thunder storm, I took stock of the opportunities around me, Twittered…and had my face painted.
and made a friend.
As we scanned the growing mass of fans, we noted that there was at least a 40 – 60% ratio of Steeler to Carolina fans. Black and Gold was every where you looked.
Game play was rather “vanilla” to quote the Sports writer.

There were these two very genteel southern ladies or as mi quierda amiga would say colorful old broads. They were a hoot between harassing the stadium employee assigned to our section with questions like “Are you here to take role?” and shout things to their team like “Keep on him dingle” or my favorite ” Pass the ball dipstick” I lost track of the number of times I saw one or the other of them come up and down from the concession stand with their glasses of beer. I have two visuals for you, gold lame strap heels and fun foam flower visor – priceless.
The city of Charlotte isn’t bad for a view either, especially when it gets dark and it’s all lit up.
A very large THANK YOU to Andrew G who lent me his camera to photo essay our trip.
Ours has bit the dust so we’re to buy a new one soon. Have pity on my husband, it’s like buying a new car for me
