i will be this close to troy polamalu

A couple of years ago, actually, the year we ended up winning the Superbowl for the SIXTH time, I went to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers play and defeat the Cincinnati Bengals. It was the first time I’d ever been to an NFL football game in person. It was exhilarating.

My husband, due to some last-minute hang-ups with his deployment, wasn’t able to come with us.

This year he is.

On Sunday {which is my birthday!} we’re going to watch them play, and hopefully defeat the New York Jets. I am so excited to share this experience with him. To be there, hearing the noise, watching the terrible towels wave in the air, being surrounded by tons of other Steelers fans, and watching as Troy Polamalu seemingly comes from the middle of nowhere to annihilate any player who gets in his way.

Such a romantic getaway.

    Hope it was romantic even without a win. And hopefully you were near the bench so that you could be close to Troy Polamalu. Happy Birthday.
