Now...on to the football.
I'm a football fan. A big one. Okay. A HUGE ONE.
I'm a Steelers fan. We live in Western Pennsylvania. Where we live, there's 5 options of teams to be fans for: Steelers, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns. You will occasionally find a Jets fan (like my sister's boyfriend...stupid.) or even a misplaced Patriots fan. (SPIT ON THEIR NAME!)
But. The majority? STEELERS.
Steelers fans are loyal. Steelers fans are hardcore. We are found across the world, sticking together and professing our love for the Black and Gold.
I've been a Steelers fan my whole life, save for 2 years when I was a Tennessee fan. Don't ask, we all do stupid things in our youth! ;) Dave is a huge Steelers fan. Both our families are fans and we're raising our kids to be Steelers fans.
The Steelers are owned by the Rooney family and they play at Heinz Field. The Rooneys are one of the first families of football and they are class acts. In the past, they have released many players for poor behavior off the field. (Jeff Reed ring a bell?) YES. There's been tons of off field drama over the last few years, but we're dealing with it. It's being taken care of. Ben is really trying to turn his life around. He just got married for pete's sake! MOVING ON!
Dave has been to several games, I've been to one preseason game. I'm claustrophobic so sports games and I aren't really good friends. I watch them all on tv though! :)
Dave and I at training camp in 2008. Notice my broken out face and puffy cheeks? I was totally pregnant and didn't know it yet! :)
Okay for some reason I can't find ANY of my pictures from the games we've gone to. One game we were in the 12th row and I have fantastic pictures of Troy Polamalu...HOTNESS. Just pretend. :)
My favorite player at the moment is Heath Miller. He's a tight end. hehe I'm also a huge fan of Coach Tomlin. He looks exactly like Omar Epps from House. FOR REAL.
You had to know I was going post this.
Wiz Khalifa is a Pittsburgh boy...throwing this song out to the BLACK AND YELLOW!
Pittsburgh...city of champions!
Ice or grass, we'll kick your...butt. ;)
(Just don't talk about the Pirates. Sigh.)
