Sorry guys, but I was just wondering if you could tell me how safe Oakland be for "poor" Steelers fan? I'm going to Oakland visit my friend and to see my godson who live there. I already bought our Steelers jersey and a hat for my godson to try to straighten him up (he is only 4 years old) as Steelers man, since he is surrounded by bunch of Raiders fans in Cali.
But my friend told me "You probably shouldn't be wearing your Steelers stuff around here when you come. You might get killed cuz we've got some crazy people around here." She is not into football but she knows how I am. She moved to Oakland area just few months ago, so I don't know if she really knows the place and people. Therefore, I was wondering if any of you guys can tell me if I would get some crap while I'm taking my godson with me in the area.
BTW, I was shocked to see that no one was wearing any Steelers stuff when I visited Pittsburgh last August. It was the either the second or the third week of pre-season games (I think the Vikes were gonna play with us). I was in the mid downtown around 12 o'clock and I was there for like 3 or 4 hours. Only one old man had a sweatshirt with Steelers logo on. I felt like I wasn't in the right place.
