Just curious how these two areas compare fan wise.
I've been told the Steelers had a lot more in Washington, numbers and percent, than in Baltimore.
I was at FedEx for the MNF game. The crowd was probably 35% plus Steelers fans, maybe even more.
I haven't been to any of the Baltimore games, but generally their fans are pretty nasty when it comes to any of their rivals. Like, if I'm visiting friends in Baltimore, I take down my Steelers fuzzy dice and helmet magnet, because if I don't, I'll come back and my car might be trashed - I don't trust them!
The Redskins fans were actually very decent - good natured, no nastiness like Raisins fans (so I've heard). I was surrounded by Steelers Nation at the game - SURROUNDED
