I've been a Steeler fan since the 6th grade. I did my class paper on Franco Harris and the Immaculate Reception. People in Washington don't understand my passion and ask why I'm not a Seahawks fan. Seachickens weren't around until 1976 and I was already a diehard Steeler fan for 4 years and have never looked back. My three boys ages 17, 14 and 14 have been raised to be Steeler fans too. I can't help it if Santa leaves them Terrible Towels, jerseys, t-shirts, Fathead's of Troy and Big Ben, etc under the Xmas tree can I?

I've read many messages and look forward to sharing thoughts, angst, arm chair analysis and Raven/Patriot (replaced Raider/Cowboy) hating with all of you.
