Steelers Three Rivers Stadium Still Alive
The Steelers home for a solid 30 years was at Three Rivers Stadium.
The stadium was demolished on February 11, 2001, but you can still visit it today.
There’s a little bit of buzz going on about this since Yahoo! Sports (because they have nothing better to do with their time) reported earlier on Friday that the Three Rivers Website site is still up and running.
Someone out there is paying for the domain to exist with indexing. After all these years.
What’s amusing about that is that this site was created on June 27, 1998 – 28 years after it first opened its gates and just mere days before an Allegheny council announced plans of building what would become PNC Park and Heinz Field on July 9, 1998.
It’s almost as if the site were created back then as an homage to that majestic concrete bunker.
Three Rivers Stadium may have stood out like a sore thumb against the city skyline. But, oh my, was there ever beautiful magic that took place within.
I encourage you to visit the site here and view all the pictures in the photo gallery.
Apparently the Rib and Music Festival and big name concerts were a million times more popular than the Pirates and Steelers based on what is uploaded. (Look for the “All About the Stadium” button on the home page)
It’s a fun little venture down memory lane. And, you can even see Phil Collins when he still was fighting the good fight against a receding hair line.
As an added bonus, you can see what the big players of the world wide web back in the day – Netscape 3.0, Internet Explorer 4.0, and MapQuest.
