So since I couldn't take part in the festivities last Thursday night in Pittsburgh, I have to live vicariously through my youngest brother who actually witnessed the game in person. I made sure he took plenty of pictures so that I could share them with the world. I have such power. This is image heavy so it may take some time for it all to load. The first set is pre-pregame.
