Re: How has Pittsbugh as a city felt?
few franchises have been named after the citizens of that city, and the industry that put the town on the map
couple this with the 'feel-good'
story the team gave the city in it's darkest hours of the 1970's, winning
Championships and forging legends in the history of the game as the mills were shuttered
and unemployment was rampant, so you have a unique situation
"When you're in other organizations, you recognize that it's different and you respect it.
Until you are part of it, you have no idea of the depths.
It's generational, passed down from father to son.
I know the more I get to understand it, the more Steeler Nation drives me. I want to win for them because they are that special.''
