Re: Steelers Fans in Ohio, Where are you?
Became a steeler fan by accident. i was 8 years old and spending the night at my grandpas house. he loved all sports . he lived for it. he was a diehard indians and browns fan. I wasnt much of any sports fan at the time. however that was about to change because this night the superbowl was on........
any how , my dad called me that night before the game and offered me a proposition.... ( he would always propose little $1 bets with me for fun and usually they could be about anything) . so he he told me he would bet me a buck that the rams would beat the steelers in the superbowl. he was another die hard browns fan... I gladly accepted that bet not knowing anything about their previous Superbowl success , I was more excited about the opportunity to win a bet from my dad. So i sat thru that whole game . this was the first time i could actually remember sitting through an entire game. maybe it was my grandpa hollerin at the tv in disgust or perhaps knowing i could harass my dad about losing the bet . Those definitely played into my excitement. When the Steelers hoisted the lombardi that night , i was so proud they won me a buck . i never turned back. I became a football fan and most importantly a steeler fan that night. I had to wait til 05 to see another lombardi hoisted but it was well worth it !!! cheers all !!
