Been there, done that! Did a mid -September "high-noon" game at Huntsville's Sam Houston State University's Bowers Stadium back in 1988 where the SID told us prior to kickoff that the heat index on the AstroTurf at gametime was going to exceed 135F!
My line judge at the time later told us that during one TV timeout in that game, either he was hallucinating or he swore that he saw Satan stealing off with a cold drink out of an orange Gatorade cooler!
That's the only game in my career that I had to shower after that game sitting in a folding chair! Posted via Mobile Device
Hahaha...! Heck, I wouldn't doubt it!
It wasn't that bad this past Friday night. Some rain was in the area, it clouded up the west of us blocking the sun. The temp dropped to the upper 80s, but it was extremely humid. The humidity exceeded 75%. I didn't sweat as much as I thought I would.
Thanks for what you do! It's not easy, and you can be a villain to the fans and coaches at times. I wish you luck and cool evenings for the first several weeks. Season kicks off on August 25th for my team. One more scrimmage this Thursday, then it's for real.
They just need to burn those ugly bumblebee uniforms.

No one could believe he jumped against that goal post. Everyone was laughing and talking about it.
The game with the kick to the punter's face I saw on t.v. when it happened. Most folks I talked with didn't think he kicked him on purpose, but just didn't time his jump properly and made another uncoordinated mistake, like the goal post thing. What a meatball...
Pretty much everyone hates those uniforms. I don't know why they agreed to make them wear them. They are ugly.

Can't wait. It'll be bittersweet. My two boys graduated so, there is no more weekend and Friday night football. I've been at all of the games for 10 years., never missed one. My oldest went to an across the country NAIA school to play.
Damn, went over my head. Neil O'Donnell was from the 90's wasn't he?
Bang head here...lol
Yep, under Cowher.
The Steelers had a great run in that decade, making the playoffs six-straight seasons. The starting quarterback in four of those six seasons ('92-'95) was Neil O'Donnell. The Steelers were 43-21 in those four years with him at the helm, advanced to the AFC Championship Game following the '94 and '95 seasons, and appeared in their first Super Bowl since 1979 when they made it to Super Bowl XXX in 1995.
The Steelers didn't win the championship as they fell short after O'Donnell threw not one, but two very horrible interceptions to Larry Brown in the second half when Pittsburgh had a chance to take the lead.
