Welcome Steelers fans!!!!! I am a die-hard Lions fan who is happy to see a great team in the Super Bowl. The Steelers will be practicing at the Pontiac Silverdome in northern Oakland County and you guys should be extremely happy about that. I hope to start seeing the Steelers Nation infiltrating the area soon. If you are going to be in town, let me tell you about some cool places to visit without getting into the cluster!@#$ that is downtown Detroit. Check out Kennedy's Irish Pub in Waterford, a Steelers friendly bar that is homey and worth a visit. Stay in Oakland County (Pontiac, Waterford, Keego Harbor, Royal Oak) until game weekend. Downtown sucks normally, and will struggle handling the influx of 100,000+ visitors. I'm not saying stay away completely but, you will do better staying out in the northern suburbs. GO STEELERS!

Thanks for the heads up.. I know some of our members are hoping their tickets come through so you might see some Steelers Fever action there too.

I'd like to welcome Steeler nation to Pittsburgh West, also.

Kennedy's is a great bar. Excellent suggestion.

Here's a good resource for Detroit tailgating. (www.detroittailgate.com) - www.detroittailgate.com

I am already taking reservations from family and friends for sleeping arrangements at my place. Everyone is psyched!!

Having been here a year, I still don't know of a good Sports Bar. Nothing like the "Sports Rock" in the strip in Pittsburgh which would be perfect.

And, he is right, downtown Detroit will be a mess. Best get here early as I don't know if they are ready for all the people.
