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.
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 1970s 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.
