To make a long story short me and my seven year old son was walking on the streets of Gatlinburgh yesterday. I had a steeler hat on and a steeler shirt. My son had on a steeler shirt and this guy walks up and asked my son why he is wearing that shirt for and he told him they are the best and have six rings. The guy just looked at my son and said I know we are jealous. He was a titan fan.

With in two hours a girl walked up to me and asked me if I was from pittsburgh and I told her I had a brother who lived there and that I was from Virginia and she replied we are from Ohio and like the browns in a smart way. I just told her when they can beat us again come and talk to me and I said don't forget about the six rings we have as well. She seemed to be a little intoxicated she got mad and went on her way down the street.

Year round Steeler pride! :thumbsup: (As I sit here in my 'summer' Steelers hat!)

I have met more people simply by wearing my Steelers gear. And forget about it when I'm road. With my personalized plates, I always get waves or people coming over.

It's funny, when the Giants won there were tons of people here wearing shirt and hats. A year and half later, I hardly see anyone. How quickly that fanaticism fades

I can't wait for Sept 10th!!! :tt::tt:

I live in Ohio and am a die hard Steelers fool,and its just amazing how bad the Browns fans hate us. Ive been in a few almost fights in bars because of my loyalty to Pittsburgh. Ive always lived in Ohio and people always ask my I would live here but root for another team. Then I have to explain that first of all I live in america, where I can choose whatever the hell I want but secondly I have a twin brother and at *8years old we chose teams to root for ,he chose the Browns, and at 8 I didnt know the rivalry between the two teams and I chose the Steelers first and formost at that time because I liked thier colors lol,and then found out that they won 4 super bowls. This was in 1979 by the way, and we didnt really have a TV to watch, but found other ways of following them, anyways as it turns out I picked the best team ever and my twin is still is a browns fan .Every year I get so much flack from all these retarded browns fans that next year this and next year that, and it just never happens.If the browns are leading at halftime my phone rings or texts off the hook, but by the end of the gameI dont hear one peep from anyone,ya gotta love it. I live in Ohio ,hate the Browns ,love the Cavs, love the buckeyes, like the Indians,love the Penguins,but man if we could only root for teams by where we lived I would move to Pa.in a heart beat,thank god I live in America,and thank god for the Steelers,which is his favorite team too.

Although its titan country, isn't the Gatlinburg area great. I hope you stayed in a cabin. I have been there several time and would like to hear about your trip in more detail.

Actually we stayed in a time share above the space neetle. We were within walking distance of anything we wanted to do. Took in some hiking and horseback riding so we really had a great time. We can't wait to go back.

If you didn't eat there, I suggest the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge. Great atmosphere and really good food.

Its wonderful for the kids, we have a daughter and a son who love the little kiddy parks and their grandparents go and my husband and I shop but its not good for our credit cards.
