When you're cut...

Why are we Steelers fans? Why are we Steelers haters? It's in our blood. It's in our ancestry. If we were born at the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers, it's only natural that when you cut us, we bleed back and gold. If you were born a little more to the north however, say in God's snow machine, you traditionally drip orange and brown. Demographics and geography make up a huge part of not only our NFL fanatic makeup, but our sport fan makeup as a whole. It's something that draws us together without the violence that can get in the way of some of the other world problems. Though we may differ in our political views, religious beliefs, education, race, or ethnic background, we are all drawn together by one thing, sports. We love it, and always will, and come game day we all may not bleed the same color, but we bleed colors of the rainbow of the team we support. I bleed black and gold, what do you bleed?

I too bleed the BLACK and GOLD! Preach it fellow Steelers fan. Well said and agreed on all points. I'll add, in the same way we come together for sports, sports also have an effect on daily life throughout the week. (especially early week) For example, if the steelers win big against a rival (ravens), monday morning, more people have a pep to their step and are excited to talk about the game, and how much fun their weekend was. If the steelers suffer a tough loss, generally faces are scowled and things get started a little bit slower on that first day of the work week. There are always exceptions, some people are always happy, some are always pissy, some don't watch sports (you have to keep an eye on those folks, usually stalkers........just sayin) but in general I believe, sports have a larger impact on the disposition of the masses than given credit for.????
