Jumping on the Steeler bandwagon?

I don't mean this to any of the die hard, life long Steeler fans on this site, but did anyone else notice the increase in Steeler shirts and flags in their area? I was at my daughters basketball game last Sunday, the day after they beat the Ravens, and I couldn't believe the number of Pittsburgh hats and shirts I saw. Are these people jumping on the bandwagon because the Steelers are winning or is it just my imagination?

Re: Jumping on the Steeler bandwagon?

It happens everywhere....

Of the two teams in the Superbowl, I hope the PA team wins. At least then they won't be able to say Six-burgh anymore....

Live, Love, Laugh.

If that don't work...

Re: Jumping on the Steeler bandwagon?

Where were you? In Pittsburgh, we dress in Steeler garb year round. It's something in our blood. But yes, there are always bandwagonners this time of year. And the colors are really nice. Did you have your #86 Steeler Jersey on?

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Don't worry, the media will make some issue when the schools have Black and Gold day, and some punk looking to stir the pot shows up in a Favre GB jersey, then acts like the kids are victimizing him by talking smack.

I'm in York, so I'm kind of smack dab in the middle of Pittsburgh, Philly and Baltimore fans. I got no problem at all if you are a true fan and you wear your stuff. But when a team does well and all the sudden there is a flood of team colors, that bothers me. Kind of like Dallas in the 90's and New England in the 2000's. I still see quite a few Patriots stickers on cars around here.

I had my #86 jersey on, but it was Todd Heap.

I'm not too sure who I'm going to root for in the Super Bowl. I like Pittsburgh because of the the tradition, the hard nosed football and everything that Pittsburgh stands for. But Green Bay has a local boy in John Kuhn and Andrew Quarless from Penn State.

Re: Jumping on the Steeler bandwagon?

Kuhn started his career as a Steeler if that helps you lean toward the Burg. I always liked Kuhn. I was sorry they let him go. He's a very versital back, much like Peyton Hillis.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

No place for him in Arians offense.

Re: Jumping on the Steeler bandwagon?

there isn't a bigger steeler fan then me and i have very little steelers clothing. i have a couple t-shirts and sweatshirts and that is it.

i'm one of those fancy types that wouldn't buy a jersey if it wasn't 100% authentic and they are pricey so in todays day and age i have a problem buying them because just when i buy a jersey they leave or get traded. lol

Kids!!! Get your camo on. We are going to Cabelas!!

I haven't bought a 100% authentic. The jersey I bought this year was Jerome Bettis. I figure he isn't likely to not be a Steeler anytime soon--Jerome will ALWAYS be a Steeler. IMO, his influence is a part of why they are where they are. I know it's probably hard to believe, but the only jersey's I own are those of running backs (Parker and Bettis), and left outside linebackers(Greg Lloyd,twice, and Joey Porter). I was going to get Silverback's, but he's 31 years old. I love our defense and running game. Otherwise, I can apparel myself in black and gold until the Super Bowl.
