How long have you been a Steeler fan?7/29/1969 date of birth

What made you become a fan of the Steelers?never knew anything else

Who is your favorite Player currently on the Steelers roster?I will always love hines ward but right now i would have to go with ben roethlisberger

Why are they your favorite player?after watching us not close the deal for 26 years, ben was the missing piece now we have 2 more lombardi trophies by having a franchise QB,secondly i haven't liked how some people have turned their backs on him after all he has done for us, shame on you people.

Who is your favorite Steeler of the past?Mean Joe Greene ...Just the name sent chills up my spine as a child

What is your favorite Steelers memory?the season of SB XIII was the first solid memories i have of cheering on the team. I will never forget the ball bouncing off jackie Smith's chest and him stiffening up thinking he just cost dallas the game and he did...SO thats it the first super bowl I watched with my own eyes...dont really remember 9 and 10

What is your favorite sport to watch other than football?hockey...love the penguins

How did you find Steeler Addicts?surfing looking for steeler wallpaper

Sum up your thoughts on Steeler Addicts in a few sentences?I'm still new but everone seems freindly, and i love to discuss the steelers with other passionate people

What do you do for a living?Air brake mechanic... i rebuild brake valves for railcars

What is one thing that might surprise people to know about you?I'm a recovering addict...clean for 4 years...to all others out there struggling with substance abuse problems YOU CAN BEAT IT... YOUR LIFE WANTS YOU BACK

What is one thing that everybody knows you for?Reliability

What kind of car or truck do you drive?None now... i was saving for a car when an opportunity to buy a steelers PSL came along... one must have his priorities... i got the PSL... the car can wait until next year

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?nothing right now...fairly happy with how i am now,still room for improvement

What are your hobbies & interests outside of posting on SA?Fishing (not as often as i would like)... music i went and seen B.B King last night and i'm going to see Roger Waters later in the year

Favorite TV show(s)?anything educational

Favorite gaming console(s) and video game(s)?PS3... resistance 1&2 ...call of duty series

Does your family enjoy watching football with you or do they run and hide when the game is on?we get together for the away games ... I love getting to heinz field for the home games

What type of Steelers game day rituals do you do?nothing much, just putting on all my steeler stuff before leaving for the stadium

Your favorite gametime food & beverage?barbecue and english ale or IRON CITY ...to all the people of pittsburgh it is good beer put down the waterered down coors light

How many Steeler games have you attended in your lifetime? approx 75-100 games

Three Rivers Stadium or Heinz Field? Three rivers has some great memories and lousy (exiting after 94 afc championship loss to chargers) worse than a funeral procession,but i would have to go with heinz field the facilities are just head and shoulders better

Immaculate Reception, "The Tackle", or "Immaculate Drive"?I would have to say the tackle. After watching us not close the deal for 26 years, I was dying for another championship. I told my brother-in -law i could tolerate a few(like 1 or 2) bad years for
another SB victory...and it happened that year...can anyone say franchise QB
When do you think the Steelers will win #7?2010

What do you think it will take for them to get back to the Super Bowl?re-establish the tough D get mendenhall the ball... THANKS BYE :cope:

He had all of his gameday tickets in a ticketholder around his neck at the Fan Blitz a couple weeks ago, that thing was thicker than a novel. :lol:
