kirwan is the man along with tim ryan who is a huge steelerfan. they have been talking about this all morning. talking to the players and coaches about it and just glowing over how great a franchise the steelers are and how they got the best most knowlegable fans. gotta agree with 83. possible the best steelers related article ive read.

they just interviewed ben and it had to be the best interview hes ever given (probably cause of the quality of the questions being asked. not much motorcycle talk but a bunch of team and football talk. he sounds like a 10 year vet and totally took control of the conversation. he will NOT be wearing the new jaw protecting "peyton manning" helmet. he said with his line he dont need it. kirwan told him he was "priceless" i agree.

both kirwan and ryan were talking how they both had "chicken skin" witnessing it, and even joking how kirwan got misty eyed.



they also talked about the coaches letting them look at and study copies of the scrimmage tape. they said how alot of teams and coaches would never just hand out that type of info of a camp practice. he said the steelers can do that cause theyre tough and gonna line up and come at you whether you know it or not. he said they dont have nothing to hide or nuthing up their sleve. just smashmouth, old school, line em up and knock em down football.

If anyone ever needed a better understanding of the Steelers - and Rooneys - I don't think I could ever find a better story to explain it.

Thanks for the post.

I grew up in a small coal - steel town about an hour from Pittsburgh...never had the opportunity to visit the city much and have never been to Pittsburgh for a game...but in my hometown, the Steeler gear is prevelant any time of the year...and even though I've lived away for more years than I'd like to say, the Steelers are and always will be my team. I get the same feeling every time I watch them take the field. Thanks for a great article. BTW, I go to the Steeler games EVERY time that they are here in Cincy...and I'm hoping to make my first game in Pittsburgh this year...YAY!
