Default New Guy here,,,

Hey Guys. I am a longtime Steeler fan, going all the way back to the mid 70's. My younger brother picked the Cowboys as his team, so of course I had to choose their biggest rival. Needless to say, I picked the better team!
I grew up just outside New York City and so, by default I am a huge New York sports fan as well. Jets, Yankees, Knick and Rangers are my teams...
All that said, I was relocated to Phoenix, AZ back in 2001. I decided immediately to support the local teams and since the Cards were pitiful, they we practically giving away season tix. So, I've been a Cards season ticket holder since then... Ironically, my high school team was also called the Cardinals so the connection from a logo perspective is fun.

I couldn't have dreamed for this Super Bowl, as I never thought the Cards could do it. But here we are.... I've got a Bradshaw and Polamalu jersey, and a Fitzgerald and Pat Tillman jersey...
I'm a Cards fan first now. And will be hoping the Cards grab their first ever Championship...

Cheers!

You clearly didn't read my post... You know, the part where I clearly stated I was relocated to AZ in 2001... I've been a Steeler fan for more than 30 years... never changed...
I live in AZ now, started supporting the local team and fell in love with the franchise.
The Steelers and Cards play in opposite conferences. It's been easy to support both. However, come Super Bowl Sunday, my allegiance will be with the Cards... Not too complicated really...

This thread is hilarious.

I love hearing guys try to explain how they just love both teams in the superbowl...happens atleast a few times a year.
Besides that, no respectable fan can have two favorite teams.
You can like other teams or root for them in the right situations, but two favorites is ridiculous.
