Looking ahead to kickoff …
Game: Steelers (0-1) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0), preseason
Time: 8:10 p.m.
Site: Heinz Field
TV, radio: Fox, WDVE-FM, ESPN Radio 970
Weather: 80 degrees, partly cloudy
UPDATE 6:22 p.m.: Couple of pics from outside a bit ago …
A gentleman hawks his wares by the riverside entrance to Heinz Field. I’d imagine if all those 6s were 7s, he’d be doing even better.
These gentlemen are pouring it on right near the old Three Rivers Gate C icon.
And the Nation, both ladies and gentlemen, begin to file in.
6:29: Actual kickoff tonight is 8:10 p.m. The Steelers’ player introductions are at 8:03.
6:40: The athletes are out …
… and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Heinz Field grass look this good. Guess there’s a reason for that.
