Default For You Out of Town Steeler Fans Have You Ever...

Like myself there are many of us Pittsburghers/Steeler Fans that don't live in Pittsburgh anymore. Since I am not in the city any more,I do come across others who are SF where I currently live and across the country since my occupation has me traveling alot. Out of curiousity have you ever been out wearing Steeler gear (hat, jeresy, jacket ect...) and someone acknowledge you just because? It could be a head nod, a wave, something said in passing or even someone stopping to chat. It happens to me frequently. Just this past christmas (08) I was riding on I-285 going to my sister-in-laws house for dinner. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a car behind me with a Steeler Logo plate on the frount of his car. I had on a H. Ward jersey and as he passed me, he noticed the jersey and waived. My wife asked who was that. I told her "it was just another Steeler Fan" and laughed. It is such a thrill for me to be noticed or acknowledge someone from The Steeler Nation outside of the city. Please post any experiences. I am curious to hear them.

HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Often! Seriously. Usually in parts of eastern PA as I'm not out of state often, but we always seem to find and acknowledge one another.

All. Over. The. World!

Couple of times.

In 2000 I was out walking my dogs in New Orleans and found another Steelers fan in the neighborhood.

I was wearing a Steelers hat at Jazzfest in 2005 and found a lot of Steeler fans.

After the Titans loss I was at WalMart wearing my Steelers hat and this guy I had never met or seen before saw my hat and was like that last game really sucked huh?? And I was like yes it did but we have the Browns up next. We stood there and talked for about 5 minutes. Its great talking to other fans and realizing we are just brothers and sisters on the nation.

All the time. I am always telling anyone I see in Steelers gear "Nice [whatever they are wearing]" or a "GO STEELERS!".

I too am often told the same thing.

Sometimes.. 10 times out of 10 I'm the one who starts the conversation though. Not knowing any Steeler fans personally I have an inherent need to discuss how awesome they are whenever I get the chance.

Being from Mississippi you would think there would be a lot of Titan fans here. In truth though there are more Steeler fans than any other NFL team. I would say other teams with support would rank Giants, Cowboys,Packers, then Titans. I work in the Tennessee area and there are more Titan fans there but Steelers are prominent. I will wear my gear and you will have a fan of the B&G come up and start talking. Same with me when I am traveling with my job(no gear) and I see a fan donning their Colors. Steeler fans are a tight knit bunch.
