Re: Okay, guys need you're help. (For The Pittsburghers)
My wife and I travel to Pittsburgh several times a year to visit friends, go to games, and just generally get away for alittle bit. We love the city, it's grown leaps and bounds over the decades. It's always been a sports town, even when the Pens & Pirates are not having a competitive season and fans are sure to voice their displeasure, they are still supported to the bitter end. However, the Steelers are on an entirely different level of passion. Sure there are people in Pittsburgh who don't really follow football; but even they check out the sports section every monday morning to see how the black n gold faired on game day.
The Steelers are an extension of the city, and vice versa. From the talk shows on TV & Radio, to the newspapers and the internet, it's always about the Steelers. Even in the offseason, any little tidbit of information is blasted all over the local media as die hard fans cling to every morsel of news about thier beloved Steelers.
The city is a hard working, tough, blue collar town, with a passion for their team; and the Steelers reflect that same type of attitude. Just like the fans bring their best out every sunday afternoon on gameday, the Steelers put forth the effort befitting of the passion their fans give to them.
The Steelers are Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh is the Steelers.
