Three Panther fans weather the floods at
Ramesh C. Reddy
many students were sleeping through the floods before the big game on
Sat, Sept 18, 04 between the Pittsburgh Panthers and Nebraska
Cornhuskers around ‘High Noon’, three sleepy and faithful Panther fans
arrived at Heinz Field, Gate C at 6:30 a.m., waiting for the gates to
open at 10:00 a.m., so they could have front row seats at the game.
At 7:01 a.m, one of
the Panther fan viewed the landscape that used to be the pathway for
Pitt fans to walk to Heinz Field flooded with water right of the light
He also witnessed the Gate A area flooded with water where the pre-game
festivities usually take place !
At 7:33 a.m, two of the
Panther fans played a game of Gin Rummy to pass the time!
At 8:00 a.m, two more
fans joined them with some breakfast to munch on!
At 11:19 a.m, enjoying
front row seats during pre-game festivities, they see their friends have
PITT written on them!
After the game began,
it was a nightmare for Pitt fans who saw Pitt lose 17 points of
turnovers and eventually the game 24-17 to the Cornhuskers of Nebraska!
