Gifts for Pittsburgh Steeler Fans

Gifts for Pittsburgh Steeler Fans

Our family is now on the fourth generation of Steeler fans. And, we sure do have our fair share of Pittsburgh Steelers fan merchandise. In the photo is our son Sammy and his wife Tricia having fun at a Steeler game.

We grew up in a small town just about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. This is a photo of our fourth generation of Steeler fans. Aren't they all just so cute?

I remember like it was yesterday the first Pittsburgh Steeler Super Bowl win in 1975. We defeated the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX. And, I say "We" like I was playing the game!

 From there the Steelers went on to win five more super bowls in 1976, 1979, 1980, 2006, and 2009. Overall the Steelers have appeared in the Super Bowl eight times and have a 6-2 record.

Known as the "City of Champions" in the 1970's for championships won by the Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates (Baseball) and University of Pitt football team the Pitt Panthers.

The famous black and gold colors of Pittsburgh, adopted by the owner of the Steelers Art Rooney in 1933, and the Pirates in 1948, and then the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL Hockey Team) in 1979.

Did you know? This makes Pittsburgh the only city in the United States where all three professional sports teams wear the same colors.

Some Pittsburgh Football Facts: Did you know that these famous NFL quarterbacks all came from the Pittsburgh area?

Johnny Unitas       Baltimore Colts
Joe Namath           New York Jets
George Blanda      Oakland Raiders
Joe Montana         San Francisco 49's
Jim Kelly               Buffalo Bills
Dan Marino           Miami Dolphins

Well, that's enough about the history of Pittsburgh sports. As you might have guessed we are huge fans. If you live in this area I'm sure you're a fan, and even if you don't you may be a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic.

  1. You are most definitely a Steelers fan, Sam, judging by this post. I knew you lived in western NY state, so 'assumed' you would be a Buffalo Bills fan. But I didn't know you were so close to Pittsburgh. You must be practically in Pennsylvania! Hope the Steelers have a good football year for you.
