There is something magical about PNC Park. I know it’s not that old, but that’s not what makes it come alive for me. When I walk through the stadium gates, I enter a whole new world. I get lost looking at all the memorabilia of former players. I love the action that seems to surround the place. When I go to see the Pirates play, I never eat first. My first meal of the day will usually be a Primanti Brothers sandwich. This is a Pittsburgh specialty which is to die for! I make sure I eat it early enough to where I can still eat more during the game. I don’t get to go to many games, so I don’t feel bad about eating so poorly the few times I am able to go each season.
Usually after my sandwich and before the game starts, I will walk throughout the stadium. The sights are just amazing and I make sure I take my camera to capture the skylines and the three rivers that meet by the stadium. As soon as the game starts, my attention is one hundred percent on the game. Though I usually leave deflated from yet another loss, I still leave feeling as if I have just experienced something magical. When I can’t go to the games, I watch them on my direct.tv. I can still capture some of the magic just by seeing the games that way!
