PA is full of beautiful women if you look hard enough, but as far as Steeler cheerleaders? Nah probably not, it's just not our way. The Rooney's are too old fashioned and set in their ways to ever have something like that happen.
Speaking as a blonde, formerly Western PA girl, (and always will be in my heart), you already have all the Steeler cheerleaders you need! Just turn and look around you at the stadium....there we'll be! Go into any Steeler bar across the country on game day....we'll be right there...cheering like crazy! Cheerleaders???? We don't need no stinkin formal cheerleaders!
I disagree with the "old fashioned" idea. Most all, if not all, of the NFL cheerleaders have "calendars" and also "will hire out to private parties."
Now this is a good idea if you are talking about hiring them for a bachlor party, or to have some kind of fun. The Rooneys do not mix football and sex. Our cheerleaders are all of the fans, like you and me, who cheer on their team each week, we do not need professionals, we do just fine
They are all around you! You don't have to look hard to find beautiful women in Pittsburgh!Speaking as a blonde, formerly Western PA girl, (and always will be in my heart), you already have all the Steeler cheerleaders you need!

Actually the Steelers did have the 1st cheerleaders.
Tryouts for the NFL's first cheerleaders began in the spring of 1961. Overseeing this momentous event was "the father" of the Steelerettes, William V. Day, and RMJC cheerleading sponsor, Garnet Glover. The girls were selected on the basis of appearance, personality, coordination and gymnastic ability. Oh, yes, and they were also required to maintain a 2.0 grade point average. The first few squads were required to take a written exam testing their knowledge of football in general, and the Steelers in particular. This meant they should be able to identify the Steelers quarterback (Bobby Layne), the coach (Buddy Parker), and have some clue as to who Buddy Dial and "Big Daddy" Lipscomb were. Hey, this wasn't easy. The written exam was dropped in 1964.
