Steeler Nation!

January 18th, 2009 · 5 Comments

Steeler NationThere’s a phenomenon in the US that no other football team in the NFL can boast about except for the Pittsburgh Steelers!  The US can truly be called Steeler Nation!  I have been to every state in the continental US except for two and in every single state you will find not only die hard Steelers fans, but also Steelers clubs and bars.

Steeler Nation waving the Terrible Towels!What is it about the Steelers that even in the heart of Dallas Cowboy country, you’ll find a Steelers bar with people rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers?  The same can be said in San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, New York and everywhere else in between!  Three years ago when the Steelers won Superbowl XL there was a huge parade for the winning team in downtown Pittsburgh (no surprise), but did you know there was also an official parade with police escorts for the Steelers in Charleston, South Carolina?!  How many cities do you know give a parade for another city’s football team?!  Only in Steeler Nation!

The Pittsburgh SteelersTerry Bradshaw was asked on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno who he thought would win between the San Diego Chargers and the Pittsburgh Steelers in last Sunday’s game.  Terry, who use to be the quarterback for the Steelers back in the 1970’s and 80’s and won four Superbowls with the team, hesitated and then said he liked the Chargers.  He was booed by the audience for not picking the Steelers!  Amazing that in California there were more Steelers fans in the audience than there were Charger fans!  Of course Terry changed his tune and then said he was going for the Steelers to win.

Terrible Towel TributeI don’t have to tell anyone who’s a part of Steeler Nation that Pittsburgh did win against the Chargers last Sunday and will now face off with the Baltimore Ravens this evening in the AFC Championship and a chance of going to the Super Bowl.  Patrick and I will once again be watching and waving our Terrible Towels as we root for another victory!  Go Steelers!!!

Maya Muses:  As I was looking for photos to support my Steeler Nation idea, much to my surprise Steeler Nation has now gone global!  See for yourself!

Update:  In a matter of a few weeks, Steeler Country went from being national to global to cosmic!!!  Yes, there’s even a Terrible Towel floating around in outer space!!!  Check out the video after the photos!!!

    Hi John, the official Steelers fan club is here: http://www.steelers.com/fan-zone/index.html from there you can join their Facebook fan club and receive their newsletter.

    Here’s another fan club site: http://www.steelcitymafia.com/ssp/news?news_id=198 This page has an interview with a fellow Australian, Trevor Crow, who’s a big Steelers fan, perhaps you can get in touch with him.

    I hope that helps!!! Like Trevor says, it’s not easy to find a Steelers bar to watch a game when you take into consideration the time zone difference. The games are being shown at 3, 4, or 5 a.m. in Australia! Not exactly the time to go to a bar, have a drink, and watch the game!!!
