Default Hello From Rochester NY

Figured I'd say hello and let all of you know how I became a Steeler fanatic.

When I was 4 years old (1975) my family was visiting Hershey PA on vacation. At the hotel we were staying there was a large pool with an awesome slide. While perched atop the slide in preparation for my decent I slipped and went backwards 10 feet down onto the concrete. Luckily I broke the fall with my head. I cracked my head, nose, arm, and a couple of ribs. I woke up with 2 dark black eyes and was told by the doctor that I would need to where some type of skull protection for the remainder of the summer. My folks didn't want me to have one of those white handicapped helmets on (neither did I) so I elected to wear a football helmet (I know it was still not cool but better than a crash helmet). The only helmets that I could have were steelers helmets (Hershey PA). As a result of the Steelers helmet I felt that I should prolly learn something about the team and the sport. I began watching the Steelers play. I remind you that this was 1975 so watching the team was quite exciting for many years. I became an avid Steelers fan.

I know most you don't care but I had to leave 1 post so I could get to links of the Steelers games on-line!

Guess I'll get my obligatory first post in too... nice to see another Steeler Fan in Rochester!

I grew up in central PA before coming to college here in Rochester. Been here 20 years now...
