  • Penn-cil in a Pittsburgh Trip

    Week 6, Oct. 17: Seattle at Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field 5:20 p.m. Pacific SPONSORED – The first time I visited Pittsburgh it was January 1998, and I laughed when a football fan tried to explain to me that this weekend with playoff football felt like Mardi Gras.
