Default VisitPittsburgh Launches Search for Biggest Steelers Fan

VisitPittsburgh Launches Search for Biggest Steelers Fan


PITTSBURGH, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Steelers fans are said to bleed black and gold. Now, the search is on to find the most die-hard fan in Steelers Nation.

VisitPittsburgh is in search of the biggest Steelers fan in the country. Not in size, but in spirit. To this end, VisitPittsburgh is holding a "Biggest Steelers Fan" contest to determine just who is the biggest Steelers fan in Steeler Nation.

"We know how passionate Steelers fans are and we know that there are Steelers fans all over the world," said Joseph McGrath, president and CEO of VisitPittsburgh. "We thought it would be fun to show the lengths that some fans will go to in order to demonstrate their devotion to the Steelers."

Steelers' shrines in the yard? VisitPittsburgh wants to see photos of it. Children named Ben or Troy? VisitPittsburgh wants to hear about it. Steelers logo tattooed on your arm? Send us a picture. While photos can be wacky and wild, they must be tasteful and legal! E-mail your photos, stories or video links to steelerscontest@visitpittsburgh.com by noon, on Wednesday, January 28. Don't forget to include your name, address and phone number!

The winner, which will be selected on Thursday, January 29, will receive two tickets to a future Steelers' home game, a Steelers jersey and a Super Bowl XL Game Football.

VisitPittsburgh launched a similar contest in 2006 - the year the Steelers won Super Bowl XL. Entries attesting to Steelers devotion came from such unlikely places as Cleveland Browns territory and as far away as New Zealand. The winner, Jeffrey Verscharen of Eighty-Four, Pa., wrote: "My basement is a shrine to Steelers football. My wedding was planned around the schedule in 1999 bye week and my baby's baptism is planned for January 29 - the week between the AFC Title Game and the Super Bowl."

In addition to attending every home game, Mr. Verscharen also carves a pumpkin in the shape of a football helmet to wear on his head at the last home game before Halloween.

Now for the fine print: Employees and immediate families of VisitPittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Steelers are not eligible to win. Steelers tickets are subject to availability. No studio photography will be considered. Contestants warrant that the photo submission is original and that they are the sole owner and creator of the piece. Entries may not have been copyrighted or published previously in any media, including books, magazines, newspapers, postcards, web sites, calendars or advertising/marketing materials. While contestant retains copyright and ownership of his/her original work, it is understood that all submissions become the property of VisitPittsburgh which has the legal right to use, publish, reproduce and give legal consent to others to use the photograph.

If I keep eating like I do, I just might become "Biggest Steelers Fan"
