Hi, I am a Pennsylvania native who is now in southern California, and I just joined Steelers fever. I drove over to Phoenix this past weekend to see the Steelers play the Cardinals. It's my 7th time seeing the Steelers in person, 6th time on the road. I have seen them play in Houston & Atlanta (back-to-back weekends in 1996), Memphis (1997 vs. the Tennessee Oilers), Nashville (1998), Charlotte (pre-season 1999), Pittsburgh (vs Browns, 1999), and Washington DC (pre-season, 2000). Let me tell you, the Steelers ALWAYS have a great road following! One Cardinals fan told me they had never seen so many fans from the visiting team in their stadium. I moved to California in January 2005, so the first thing I sought out was a Steelers fan club, which meets at Schooner's Station in Colton CA. I got married in 2006, so that year will always be special to me, also since the Steelers got one for the thumb in February! I was a teenager when the Steelers won their Super Bowls in the 1970s, and those were some of my fondest memories of those years.
I've lived in so many places, it's good to have something so unchangeable over the years- the Steelers always have a good (sometimes great) team!

Hey it's my friends birthday on Nov 5th and I saw you mentioned a place in Colton. She is the biggest Steeler fan ever, in fact her whole family are HUGE steeler fans, but anyway I wanted to find somewhere to go watch the game for her birthday and bring a few of her family as well????? Is the place you mentioned a good choice for that???

Yes, it's an excellent choice. Schooner's Station is off 1280 E. Washington Street in Colton, right off I-215. They have plenty of TV screens, though only 1 big screen. A Steelers fan club meets there on game days. They raffle off Steelers items at halftime. One note: a Raiders fan club supposedly meets there too, though I have yet to come across an occasion when both teams are playing at the same time (I'm sure it happens). The place gets full before kickoff. The Seahawks-Steelers game is on channel 11 locally this Sunday, so I probably won't go to Schooner's then. The food is very basic, but one goes there to enjoy the atmosphere of being with loads of other Steelers fans on game day!

Schooners is a great place but if you decide to go you need to get there early if you want to get a seat.
