At the stadium

I finally made it into the press box after the 20 or so security checks and a 10 block bus ride that took 30 minutes.

It's three hours until kickoff and the stadium is already halfway full, mostly with Steelers fans. They've turned out in droves as has been the case over and over again.

Apparently too many turned up. Word has it the downtown Detroit bars ran out of booze and beer by 10 p.m. Saturday night. Thousands of people made the trip out from Pittsburgh even though they didn't have tickets.
