Default Another Steelers fan from England

I`ve been a Steelers fan since the Eighties when I met a guy at school from the Steel City who`s father was on temporary transfer from Pittsburgh to a local company. I had no knowledge of football at all at that stage but my new found friend got me interested and his love of the Steelers kind of rubbed off on me. He moved on and we lost touch but my support of the Steelers has remained with me especially when the TV here started showing the sport on a regular basis.

A few years ago I actually managed to rise enough cash to visit Pittsburgh for the first game of the season against the Texans and I fell in love with both the city itself and it`s extremely friendly people and I`m hoping to make another pilgrimage there in 2014 but meanwhile I`m greatly looking forward, like many other UK based Steeler fans, to seeing the Black and Gold playing at Wembley in September
