I've been a sports fan since I was about 7 years old. The first game I remember vividly watching was Super Bowl XIV between the Steelers and Los Angeles Rams. I've been hooked ever since.

My first love is the Steelers, but I'm also a huge Pirates fan and even though it's been painful the last two decades, I'm hoping they can give me some more great memories like they did in the early 90's.

I'm not the biggest hockey fan in the world, but I'm learning to appreciate the sport more and more.

I also love PITT athletics and college football and basketball, in general.

A Fan Of...

I don't mind it being an offensive dominant team. Its best player is the quarterback.
