Hello all my fellow Steelers fans! Thrilled to be a part of the group.

I love the Steelers and have been a fan from as long as I can remember. Goes back to when I started high school and loved watching them on TV every chance I could get in the late 60’s early seventies… not easy when you live in Vancouver BC, Canada!

Back then we got a ½ hour at show at 9am every Saturday morning that was a re-cap of all the previous weeks NFL games. I watched every episode just to get my 2-minute fix of the Steelers!

This year I’m finally going to get my wish and hope to see the Steelers at Heinz Field. We’ll be in Pittsburgh for 3 days (with my wife on route to Scotland) when the Packers come to town, so I can’t wait to get tickets and party with everyone.

BTW…just loved watching Stefan Logan finally get his chance to play yesterday. He played for our local team - the BC Lions. I was sorry to hear he was leaving to try making it in the NFL but super happy when the Steelers took him to camp. He’s a thrill to watch, a lot of speed and power for a little guy, and I’m pulling for him to make the team.

GO STEELERS!

Team leaders have been losers. They lack a winning tradition, this goes from the ground up. Winners bread winners. The Steelers history of being champions inspire new players and each years teams to win it all, the Canucks have nothing like this to draw on. We need to build a team around players and coaches that know what it means to win because they have some experiences in having won it all, right now and in the past we have not had enough of these people in the organization. Also too many Europeans on the team.... but we have great fans!
