OK....I have enjoyed reading your posts up until you made this rather ignorant statement.

I was born and raised in Memphis, TN, and I became a Steeler fan around age 10. Admittedly it was because I had a crush on Franco Harris. But as I got older and learned more about the game of football itself, I came to appreciate the kind of football the Steelers play-good, smashmouth football.

And I am not alone in this: Check out www.memphissteelersclub.com

This local fan club was started by a Pittsburgh native, and there are a few other West PA natives in the club, but for the most part the members are from the Memphis area who share a passion for Steeler football. And I am not a bandwagon fan; like I said, I have loved the Steelers for most of my life.

I don't think you have to be from a region to love and appreciate a team.

/rant over.
