View Full Version : longterm Steelers fan in Oz

04-28-2010, 04:34 AM
Hey everyone,
Just joined up so saying hello. I'm Australian, living in Melbourne, Victoria, and have been a loyal Steelers fan since 1977 (when I was 14)! Also a Penguins fan, but not into baseball (I mean, I hope the Pirates win of course, but I don't follow the game).

Always happy to meet and talk to Steelers fans from anywhere, so hit me up, cheers!

Welcome aboard mate. Australia is the only place that has more slang than Pittsburgh. Please keep in mind that "root" has a different meaning up here! :greengrin:

I also follow a team from Perth, Carn the Force!

Thanks so much to all of you! You're all my family and I look forward to one day being able to come to Pittsburgh finally and meet you all in person, share a beer or three and take in a Steelers game at Heinz Field. I've never had the opportunity yet to do that (I'm not financially well-off) but one day I hope to do so and it would be a dream come true for me. Been a Steelers maniac since 1977. Followed the team religiously since then, although the year we beat the Seahawks in the Super Bowl was bittersweet for me as my mother passed away at the age of 84 in the October of that season (when we weren't doing too well), so she never saw us get that 'one for the thumb' (she was a devoted Steelers fan too, bless her).

This is a great site and I definitely should have joined up ages ago, but until now I've never been an online forum-poster. But it's great here, being among my own people so to speak, and we all have a common goal at heart for our beloved team - bring on ring number 7!

Thanks again everybody, I feel really at home here!

All the best,
Ulex in Melbourne, Australia
