View Full Version : The British Are Coming! Oh wait - One British person is coming!

Hi, I'm 21 and from Lancashire, England. Inspired by todays NFL game in London, I decided to start supporting an NFL team. No prizes for guessing who:smile:

I decided to start supporting the Steelers for a few reasons -

1. I have relatives in the Pittsburgh area (going by the surname Moxham - which isn't my surname - mine is Smith) and Ernest Moxham, my great grandmothers cousin, emigrated to America to work in a steel mill.

2. I think theres a good link between Pennsylvania and Lancashire - both areas were working-class areas which were once powerhouses of their respective countries and saw a lot of immigration.

3. I've always liked Pittsburgh as a city.

I know very little about American Football, so at first I'm not going to be posting posts full of the terminology etc, but hopefully I'll soon know a lot more about American Football.

Thats all I wanted to post for now.:computer:

Livinginthe Past????

Lol joke, never mind that. I have relatives in London by the name of Abbot / Dunn...

I know what learning about another sport and trying to get into it can be like... A few years ago I started watching some seasons of Champions league soccer... That carried over to the WC and now I am a pretty big and knowledgable fan. It's tough! Stick with it and you will learn to love the Steelers... But more importantly, the game! :tt02:
