Steelers: 16-1. Weapons of mass destruction found: 0.
The play by play: Saddam Hussein is a quarter back for a different team!
One Steelers fan explains that he's actually for the war while his girlfriend holds him back.
One last group shot, at the Roberto Clemente bridge.
These fans are all ready to watch the Steelers take home the win.
Governor Rendell arrived in a motorcade to watch the game from the exclusive suites. Someone yelled "hey Governor! get on the Bus with mass transit!" (Jerome Bettis, Steelers running-back is nicknamed "the Bus").
Rendell said "call your reps!" Well, some of us already have, Governor.

What was the overall crowd response?
Amount of support

Actually, surprisingly positive response. There were a few hecklers, but also people who got up and started dancing to the marching band and other people who were cheering. The hecklers were disappointing, but nobody caused any problems. A pair of soldiers from Iraq who had been drinking all day were heckling for about 15 minutes before we interviewed them, and in the course of the interview they eventually told us that they were happy that this protest was happening but that it was because of them that this protest could go on. A spirited discussion ensued with one of the protest members, but in the end everything was fine.
Steelers fans against war

This is a comment about the picture of the Steeler fan who was for the war...his girlfriend holding him back....Here's another Pro-War young man who will get in your face about being all for the war but for some reason (yellow) won't join up to fight.
