I wasn't born in western PA but I do know what you are talking about since my mom and dad were born close to Pittsburgh. Even though I'm not surrounded by Steelers fans. Its still a way of life and I talk about the Steelers every day thanks to my family. Most of my moms family is out here in Indiana as well. So we have the Steelers Nation presented very well out here in Bears and Colts country.

I might have been born in Indiana but Pittsburgh will always be in my heart.

I live in Michigan and have been a steeler fan for many, many years. We have no ties to Pittsburgh. Where I work there are 13 steeler fans and noone knew one another before they started working. Steeler fans are all over this area, all ages. As Steelerzgirl said everyday something is said regarding the steelers.

I live in the Burgh, so I am blessed to be surrounded by Steelers fans all the time.

I'll never forget a Pre-Trial Conference I attended with an attorney I was working with on an upcoming trial several years ago. When the Judge decided to give us all a break from the "action", no one left the room, including the Judge, and we all sat around for almost half an hour talking..........

Steelers football!

After years of feeling very isolated from my Steeler roots, I have been blessed to meet a group of fellow fans here in Cincy as well as a great Steeler bar to watch the games! It's not unusual to be around town and come across someone wearing some Steeler gear or giving a positive comment on mine.....But there is something incredible about being back in my hometown in Western PA, where you are surrounded by fans at any time of the year! The local stores are always showcasing Steeler gear...everywhere. It gives you a sense of being part of something.......huge!

This is an awesome topic to post............I too will be at the opener and am ecstatic to be able to get a feel in person of the Steeler fever........I grew up in Fla with an entire family that loved the Steelers and watching Steven play........so I can say I have a tiny knowledge of what it might feel like......but my dream has been to go to the Burgh my whole life.......my husband is giving me this gift for my birthday and I can't wait


You Burgher's should feel extremely lucky .....Don't take it for granted

Actually sweetie I have tickets for the Dec. 24 game against the Ravens. It will be my fourth Steelers and first at Heinz Field. I got to go to two games during the 1997 season when I lived in Pittsburgh for a year. Then I was at Indy for the Monday night game last year. I can't wait to get to Heinz Field with the rest of the Steelers Nation.
