I just wanted to share a Steelers experience with everyone... A few years ago, back when I was in high school we had a group of exchange students come over for a year. The one was from Germany, more specifically outside Nurenberg. So he joined the swim team which I was a member off. So I helped him out with his breastroke and we ended up becoming pretty good friends. His host family actually took him to a Steeler Game. He came back about a few months ago just before the season... He had been keeping up with the Steelers after he went back home. When he came back over he traded me a FC Nurenberg soccer jersey for a white Roethlisberger one. We went to training camp a few days while he was here also and I explained alot of the offseason stuff to him that doesnt happen in German sports. Like the draft and what not. So when it came time for him to write a graduation paper (20 pages) this year, he picked the NFL as a topic. More specifically the Draft. He also had parties for the Denver and Colts games (they didnt get the Cincy game there). And he is having his own superbowl party with friends even though it will be the middle of the night there. Its no longer Steeler Nation it's The Steeler World... :helmet:
