Season Recap

Hey Yinz Guys,

On this edition of the Real Housewives of Heinz Field, the season ended early for our heroes as the Brownies could not help aht. The big questions heading into the off-season are: will Ben and Antonio patch things up?  Which Steelers player will next appear as The Masked Singer? Who stays? Who goes? Stay tuned as the Real Housewives of Heinz Field returns soon.

SEASON RECAP:

The season started on a rainy day in Cleveland, with a tie that should have been an indicator of things to come and ended with a win over the Bungles, with the team and fans sticking around to watch the Brownies vs. Ratbirds on the big screen seal their fate. In between, you had no defense versus the Chiefs, Vance’s stiffarm, a loss to the Ratbirds, cleaning up the dirty birds, a comeback in Cinci, the bye week, after tragedy: a win for a healing city, revenge on the Ratbirds, 7 players, 7 touchdowns against the Panthers, a comeback against the Jags, Boswell to Villanueva in the Mile High City, losing to the Chargers and the referees, a slip and fall in Oakland, finally a win over Tommy, and another loss to the officials. Whew, what a rollercoaster ride.

GET WELL SOON:

Our own Jimmy the Spoons is recovering from an illness.  Get well soon Jimmy and keep the trivia questions coming!

NFL DRAFT:

Our next gathering most likely will be the draft.  Details to follow. The draft will be held April 25th-27th and the Steelers have the 20th pick.

ATTENDANCE:

This year, 2332 of yinz came out to watch the Black and Gold with the SFOM for an average of 145 per game.  Considering all the prime-time games, this is a good showing.

FOOD DRIVE:

We had another successful Food Drive as we collected $3,605 along with matching funds brought the total to $10,735, which is enough to provide 32,205 meals to our neighbors in need.  Thank you to all who purchased tickets, helped or sold tickets. A special thank you to food drive coordinator Ed Buechel who works with Second Harvest and secures the matching funds.

PITTSBURGHESE (Just because the season is over, it doesn’t mean the learning stops.):

THAT’S IT, FORT PITT

Meaning: That’s right or, it’s allowed.

In a Sentence: “Did the Stillers, miss the playoffs? That’s it Fort Pitt”
