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
Welcome!!!!! my 1st game was also that game vs texans I believe 2008
