Hey all,

I lived in Pittsburgh for a few years and started following the Steelers through friends when there (the total media saturation helped too I guess). Now I am back home in Perth (Australia) and regularly skip work to watch the games when the Steelers are lucky enough to be one of the 4/5 games a week on the various networks here that play some games (such as with the great win yesterday morning my time :yellowthumb:).

According to Google Earth, this is my trip to Heinz field (it includes 16,000 km of Kayaking apparently):

Personally, I think the 30 or so hours worth of flying would be the better bet (either through London or LA, it takes about the same time - yes, this literally is the opposite side of the world).

Cheers,
Nick

Welcome aboard mate! When making the trip to the Burg it's better to go thru LA than Pommy land! Go the Western Force! ;)
