I was born and raised right across the river from you in New Brighton, Pa. I have been a Steelers fan since birth I guess you could say (1975). I remember going to games when I was 4-5 with my grandfather, remember watching games with the family for as long as I can remember, basically born into the profession of being a Steelers fan. I am now in Charleston, SC and there is a huge Steelers following down here. In the immediate area of Charleston there are 5 die hard Steeler bars that I know of. For the Super Bowl there were probably about 75 Steelers fans at my buddies house watching the game, so no shortage of Pittsburgh influence on Sunday. Still miss the Burgh on some days, except when I am wearing shorts and a tee shirt in January and I think about the cold and snow up there. Like Hindes said, I have a constant craving for Primanti's sammiches.
