In case you didn't know...

I'm a huge Steelers fan.

If you're friends with me on Twitter, you already know this. Why am I such a huge fan of a football team?

This is a bar in Florida, believe it or not.

Pittsburgh has a lot of heart. We're not a huge city, a glamorous city, or even a huge tourist destination. Pittsburgh has charm though, and it's home. I've lived here for 15+ years, and just recently, I've started to notice how much I really regard it as "home."

Last super bowl parade... this garage was obvi. a popular spot.
I miss Pittsburgh when I'm away. I'm proud to live here. I hate the weather, but hey, you can't have it all. Unless you live in Hawaii. Then, I'm jealous.

In my mind, the Steelers represent Pittsburgh. When I cheer for the black and gold (or black and yellow - holy crap, Wiz Khalifa caused quite the debate), I'm cheering for our city! I'm also cheering because I love football. I think it's a requirement to love football in this city.

So, this weekend, I'll be cheering for my city and our awesome football team. Go Steelers! Go Pittsburgh! Bring home lucky number 7!

Who are you cheering for?
