Photo Flashback Thursday

2008 McDonalds KDKA Steelers Trivia Champions
Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out and look through all of the pictures that I have either taken, scanned or stolen off of the internet through the years and reflect upon them a little. Little lost but permanently captured moments in time that I can post up and reflect upon for everyone. Sometimes this is a pretty easy task and sometimes it's pretty difficult, it is however always my pleasure and a whole lot of fun.

This weeks pic goes all the way back to 2008. We as "Poised to Strike" competed in and won the McDonalds KDKA Pittsburgh Steelers Trivia Challenge. One of our prizes was obviously two tickets for each team member to a Steelers game as well as sideline passes for us and our guests. This weeks picture is from the 2008 Colts Game that the Steelers unfortunately lost.

We were down on the field with the players for a couple of hours and got all kinds of pictures, it was a surreal experience for this lifetime Steelers fan.

Last year we reformed the old Poised to Strike team but went by the names the Pudgy Polamalus. We did win our first two round games last year, but stumbled out of the blocks in the Championship game and finishing third. Last years prize was a VIP Trip to Steelers Training Camp and we enjoyed that. A third place finish and all of us had events happening days leading up to the taping including Michelle being in the hospital.

However those are both in the past and the Pudgy Polamalus reassembled this year to once again compete. We are in week 5, which will air on August 9th on KDKA. If we win that week we will be on again in the Semi-Finals in week 8 on August 30th. If we get lucky there and manage to advance, we would appear in the Championship Show on September 6th to play for the prizes. I'll be in Baltimore getting ready to get on a boat that day, so everyone will have to tell me how we did when I get back if we advanced that far. =)
