I've been a Steeler's fan since October 5, 1980.

When people in Portland, OR see me sporting my Steelers lanyard at work or shirts, hats, etc., they always ask, "Oh, are you from Pittsburgh?" No I am not. I became a Steeler's fan to spite my older brother. I was nine years old at the time, and he was ten. We were fighting earlier in the day and I was really ticked off at him. I remember that he was a Vikings fan because he liked the idea of being a viking with horns on a helmet. The Vikings were playing that day and I hadn't really been interested in football before that, but I decided that I would watch and root against his team. The Vikings were playing the Steelers that day. The Steelers man-handled them and were up 23 to 3 at the end of 3 quarters. Lynn Swann was my favorite player and I had no idea that the Steelers had already won four SBs until the following year. I've been a fan ever since and I still have that Lynn Swann Jersey. The numbers are worn because I wore it every day that I could.

I have become a lifelong fan and admirer of this team's rich history, fantastic fans and deep love for their football team. I firmly believe that if you are not a crazy Steelers fan, then you're not really a Steelers fan.

GO STEELERS!
