Default Western PA Native Displaced to Northwest

I go back too far with the Steelers - back when they were an afterthought to the Panthers and even the Browns. (In those days Army, Navy, Syracuse, Alabama were the national powers.) Watched them bounce from Forbes Field to Pitt Stadium. Saw both John Henry Johnson and Bobby Layne (at the end of his career and liver) play.

Was in the stands freezing when we beat the Raiders in late 70's - never so cold in my life - even with the antifreeze we were drinking. Of course that was when going to the game was no more expensive than watching it on the tube in the pub - before corporate pricing and other excess. Also in the stands when Dorsett carved up Penn State at one of the first night games for either team. Before that watched Jimmy Brown first against Pitt and later against the world at Memorial Stadium in Cleveland. Also saw and even better back for Syracuse who died of cancer before getting to the NFL- and Army's lonely end and in same era Army's Heisman Trophy winner - Pete Dawkins.

Have been in Seattle for past 30 years and wanted to respond to editorial regarding media personnel with Western PA connections. One person understandably overlooked is the pencil-necked geek of ESPN fame, John Clayton. He is regularly on local radio here and never fails to take a shot at the Steelers, the Steeler management, and the Steeler fans. One could explain it by saying he is injecting some journalistic balance. But, then he never fails to become the biggest hometowner when it comes to the Seahawks.

Just wondered maybe one of you guys knew John when he lived in the Burgh and just who those guys were that never picked him to be on their side and ruined his self-esteem. Or the girls which failed to notice him. There has to be some explanation for his damaged ego or is id.

Hate to say I'm not too sure.
