Default Re: 'Burghers in exile

Born across the river from Wheeling WV. been a Steelers fan since 1970, moved 45 minutes from Cleveland in the early 70s. Was at the Steelers/Cleveland game in Cleveland when Turkey Jones piledrived Terry Bradshaw head first into the field. About 20 fights broke out around us I was 13 years old then. Never been to a Steelers game in Pittsburgh. Went to a couple of Pirates games at Three Rivers.

Live in Atlanta now a lot of Steelers bars in and around Atlanta. Been to two Steelers/ Falcons games on was a Monday Night game the other was a Sunday game in the 90s. At the Sunday game we got there early to people watch and saw so much black and gold go into the Georgia Dome I asked my dad when did they put a roof on Three Rivers. We all laughed because it was like a home game for the Steelers. Right then I know the Steelers Nation reached long and far.
