My Steeler friend and I were talking at lunch, when a bandwagon Steeler fan walked in. Seriously, he's never said anything about Pittsburgh before these playoff wins. Anyways, we played a trick on him to see how much he knew, and so asked him who Lynn Swann played for.. I said "Lynn Swann, who is that?" The "Steeler" fan was completely silent, had no idea, and then my friend said "Oh, wait I know now.. He played for the Jets.. Yes thats right." lol, We then walked away "Lynn Swann, my god if you don't know Lynn Swann, you don't know Pittsburgh." It was pretty funny actually.

Where are you because at least everyone in the state of PA should know who Lynn Swann is even if they didn't see him play in any form, highlights, live, etc. I mean the guy has pretty much, if not locked up the ticket spot for governer on the republican side, I mean anyone from PA coulda at least come up with the easy out of " oh you mean the future governer of the state of PA. "

There do seem to be a lot of people jumping on the Steeler bandwagon.... Mods, humour me.... How much has this site grown (member wise) in the last month.

PS. No disrespect to new members, but it appears some have hopped on the bandwagon because of the Steelers playoff success.

To represent the new members on the block. Been a fan since CMU days in 90's, and I just joined about 15 minutes ago. Apologies for not finding this forum sooner. Driving out from NYC to the burg tomorrow.

Depending how old this person is, it's not so far fetched that he wouldn't know Swann. And if he ever met Swann, he'd just assume forget about it.
