I can't stomach bandwagon fans. The Steelers have their fair share of them, as do the Pirates and Pens. Everyone in Pittsburgh right now is a Pens fan because of their success in the playoffs. XT will tell you - we've shared season tix for several years now and before the second half of last season, the loveable old barn was half empty most weeknights. On KDKA last week, they interviewed at least a dozen fans and asked them to name 5 Pittsburgh Penguins in 10 seconds or less and not a one of them could do it. Again - my slipper hit its target - several times.

I've always believed that if you alliege yourself to a team, you stick with 'em through the good times and the bad. Every sports franchise out there has suffered through lean years but when all is said and done, if you love 'em , you don't leave 'em when times are tough.

I always get a chuckle when Browns fans are actually proud of, and display prominently, that little sprite or gnome or elf of dubious and questionable sexual orientation.

I enjoy letting them twist in the wind. Ask them something like "when did you guys switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4?" or "who's that big guy on your o-line that had the big game last week?" and just let them squirm. Give them enough rope to hang themselves with.

I've been a Steelers fan since 8 years old (31 now) ever since my father bought me a Steelers uniform. Don't know why he did it, because at the time he was a Broncos fan (however my dad has never been into football as much as I have), I think he must have probably picked it up at a yard sale or something but was complete with pads and helmet. I was so stoked I put on the gear and ran into anything I could. Needless to say from then on out I was a die hard fan, and would NEVER change.

However my older brother somehow managed to be a cowboys fan... odd to think about how we allways managed to go in different directions, being from N.C. he is a UNC fan I am a Duke fan..

But, I've digressed.. my brother quickly changed allegances from cowboys to the Panthers when NC got our NFL team. I never understood how he could do that, and like wise he can't understand why I have no love for the Panthers.

IMO once you have followed a team for decades, seen the ups and downs, cheered wildly at times and bowing your head in shame at others, jumping ship is just something I can't fathom.

I guess you could call me a bandwaggoner. I got on in 73 just before they started winning SBs, but at least I never got off.

Recovering Cowboy fan in fact. Growing up in CT. (formative years you know) my uncle Don from Dallas made sure a was properly outfitted in all of the most up to date cowboys garb. You know....hats, sweatshirts, and yes,.....even the Dallas Cowboy flame-retardent pajamas. Life was good and so were the Cowboys in the 70's. Anyway, I came out to college in western, PA. Loved the area and the people and have pretty much been here ever since. I had been harassed by Steeler friends for over 20 years. I even had a bunch of friends over for the Steeler-Cowboy Superbowl as I was the only one with a big screen at that point...... I was the only Cowboy fan in attendance as well.

Anywho, being in Pittsburgh for 20+ years, what is there not to love and respect about the Steelers? Being married to a Steeler fanatic helped too.

I know. I know. But as they say, you have to walk a mile in a Cowboy fans shoes.....besides, it was uncle Don's fault. Why couldn't I have had an uncle from Pittsburgh?

GO STEELERS!!!!!
