Let me tell you about my feel good Steeler story in Cincinnati!!

I was walking into a mall here in Whinetown and this young African-American man (cool looking dude in sunglasses) was walking toward me in a Steeler t-shirt. Now remember, when a Steeler fan gets a comment about their shirt here, the first reaction is to think it's a put down. I walked toward him and gave him a thumbs up and said "hey, nice shirt!!" It took him a half a second and then he said "World Champions baby!" and we high-fived each other as we passed each other.

Gives me the warm fuzzies thinking about this cool, young black dude having a bonding moment with a middle-aged white woman!!

:cheers:

I was wearing my Peezy jersey in the mall here in Spokane, and I swear, no kidding 5-6 people (separate incidents) were chanting "here we go Steelers" as I walked through the mall in Seahawks country.

There are quite a few Steeler fans here in Memphis. When I have on my Steelers gear and I see somebody else with theirs, we just exchange smiles and maybe a high five and say "Go Steelers"

Gotta love the Steeler Nation!! :tt02:

lol great story bro, i have 1 my-self. today i was wearing my steelers shirt just like the 1's they wear on the sidelines. i was at the mall with some friends inside a champs store lookin for a new steelers hat, so this guy walks up 2 me, with a ravens jersey(#52) and said good luck on sunday against the bungles i hate them the most out of the AFC north and he also said even though u guys are in our division i have the most respect for u guys and the steeler tradition, i just thought that was real classy from a ravens fan.

I like Browns fans around southern ohio.. yeah, around here they're are always bonding with me on their hatred for the bungles.

Oh, and I met an older steelers fan in a sports store and talked to her for 20 minutes or so before I went to check out, realizing I left my wallet in my car. I started putting down all the stuff I had to go get my wallet, and she says "what, not buying it?" after explaining the situation, she took everything I had and went up and bought it for me. It was easily 125-150 worth of clothes. That's why I love being a steelers fan. No matter where you go, you'll always have a friend in another steelers fan. We don't just chant for one-another, we take care of each-other.
