Default A Steeler feel good story from Cincinnati

Let me tell you about my feel good Steeler story in Cincinnati!!

I was walking into a mall here in Whinetown and this young African-American man (cool looking dude in sunglasses) was walking toward me in a Steeler t-shirt. Now remember, when a Steeler fan gets a comment about their shirt here, the first reaction is to think it's a put down. I walked toward him and gave him a thumbs up and said "hey, nice shirt!!" It took him a half a second and then he said "World Champions baby!" and we high-fived each other as we passed each other.

Gives me the warm fuzzies thinking about this cool, young black dude having a bonding moment with a middle-aged white woman!!

I was wearing my Peezy jersey in the mall here in Spokane, and I swear, no kidding 5-6 people (separate incidents) were chanting "here we go Steelers" as I walked through the mall in Seahawks country.

There are quite a few Steeler fans here in Memphis. When I have on my Steelers gear and I see somebody else with theirs, we just exchange smiles and maybe a high five and say "Go Steelers"

Gotta love the Steeler Nation!!
