View Full Version : Closet Steelers Fan

01-27-2006, 10:22 AM
I would like to first say "Hi" to everyone on this board. I'm new here! But I do have a slight problem. I've just now found out that I must be a closet Steelers fan. I live in North Jersey and like most people I find my self cheering and rooting for the Giants. But for the past couple of seasons, I've notice that I also have found myself following the Steelers too. I've always been a Bettis fan and I'm so excited that Bettis might get a change to get that ring he have been chasing for so long. Also, Big Ben is the man! Never have I've seen a QB do the things he is doing in his second season. I just love everything about the Steelers. From the traditions, the terrible towel, history, and most of all pride. The Pittsburgh Steelers are everything football teams try to emulate (and many fall so short). So this is a confestion of a closet Steelers fan. I hope that by telling all you true blue Steelers fan that maybe it will be easier for me to tell the world. "I love the Steelers" Thanks!

My sister moved to Jersey and she supports the Steelers and has no problem sporting the B&G in public.

Me personally, I could NEVER imagine rooting for two different teams. It's impossible. There are the Steelers and then there is the rest of the NFL. I have not missed a Steeler home game inside both Three Rivers and Heinz since age four. In my wildest of dreams I could not imagine rooting for another team. It's just wrong....at least where I come from.

To each their own I guess?

yeah thats the problem lol. For the most part most people won't mess with you. (Unless you wear a Steelers jersey in Giants stadium) But I see where you're coming from. One person can't root for two teams. I see that its okay to well "follow" two teams. But to really root and cheer for one? That is crazy. (Example in this area Yankees/Mets fan ewww) but I guess thats how life is.

Welcome to Steelers Fever, Omega! http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/whitediamonds/58d90f85.gif

I can sympathize but not identify Omega. I proudly wear my Black n Gold jersey here in 9ers/raiders country and just smile nicely when my neighbors mutter ominously in my direction. It's easier to do this year since I've actually been able to watch our boys in prime time for most of the season ~LOL~

Welcome to SF and stand proud!
