HI, I am a 39 year old Steeler fanatic. I have been a Steeler fan since I was about 7 yrs old when I really started getting into NFL pro football. I am from a small town in Virginia nestled in the Shenandoah Valley called Stuarts Draft. I absolutley bleed black and gold. I even married a Pennsylvania girl and converted her to the black and gold. I work at a place called NIBCO, which makes copper pipe fittings. I am amazed how this part of the country has slowly become Steeler Country. These days around here all you see is Steeler fans and I love it because when I was sporting the colors when I was younger you barely seen anyone else wearing it. Being from Virginia I have never got to see the Steelers play in person. I have been to Pittsburgh twice in my lifetime but I have never seen a game. My ultimate goal is to go to Pittsburgh and see my team play. I want so much to see them in person that it ain't even funny. I guess I'm not the only one because my 12 year old son feels the same way. Well I will end it here, thanks for the welcome and GO STEELERS!!!
