Close fellas, but '33' is actually the number of ways that the Bungles can lose any one game. :wink:

Or was it the record for the number of Bungles that have been arrested in one 16 game season. :toofunny:

I forget.... :dang: I know it was one of those.

it has to be something about the bungles sucking I'm sure of that

Actually, I too thought the "33" was for the year the team was founded. But when I was a game last year, this old timer in the seat next to me, told me that 33 was the number that referenced steel on the elements chart. So I am guessing the old timer was right since he told me he had been coming to games since 72.

Well I looked it up. And 33 stands for arsenic on the elements chart. The old timer was obviously messin with me. It was the Bungles game last year, so I guess we were all pissed off.

1933 is the year in which the steelers actually became the steelers they were the ptttsburgh pirates...for almost a decade..but the chief got tired of people confusing the football team with the baseball team...so he changed the name in 1933....

The Steelers were established as the Pirates, then changed in 1940 to the Steelers.(Just a note)

Welcome to the forum ahustlasdream...however, the team was known as Pittsburgh Professional Football Club changed their nickname from "the Pirates" to "the Steelers" in 1940. You were right about being nicknamed "the Pirates" for almost a decade. You just had the wrong decade.:smile:

It IS the year the Steelers were founded (originally named the "Pirates" after the cities baseball team)

I'm going to go with the Rolling Rock answer.

I think it's convenient marketing because the Steelers started in 1933. If it was just the year, it would only have one quote mark - '33 - but the double quotes plus it's in the same font as Rolling Rock makes me think it's an ad for the beer.

Interesting...I dont understand how effective of an ad it could be though without saying Rolling Rock, maybe its a double meaning with subliminal advertising...?

Rolling Rock's 33 is one of the main parts of their marketing. They've been using it for years. I think it's a natural connection btw RR and the Steelers.

33- the number on the bottle & the year the steelers started
Latrobe, PA - where RR is brewed & where the steelers hold training camp
