Welcome to Steeler Nation

Just over one week to go. Can you believe the Steelers are going back to the big dance, after only three years?

As I have said at least three times, there is no better place to be right now than the Burgh. If you need any more proof, check out the PG's website forum entitled "Coming to Pittsburgh for the Super Bowl."

I am surprised at the number of people traveling from places as far away as California, Seattle, Texas, and even Florida, where the Super Bowl is going to be, just to be with other Pittsburghers for the game. Since I have a five-year old and I am not a fan of crowded bars anymore, I won't be going anywhere for the game; I will stay right here and watch it in the comfort of my home, on my 42" HD, flat-screen TV, glad that I can pause and rewatch any play thanks to the DVR. Part of me would love to go somewhere just to be a part of all the camaraderie; if we win, the city will be crazy.

But that is beauty of being a Steelers fan and part of Steeler Nation; you just know your team is going to go back to the Super Bowl again. Sure, it might take a few years, maybe even a dozen or so. But it will happen.

Our nation has a new president (more on that later). But more importantly, Steeler Nation has a big week ahead. As a local resident of Steeler Nation, I will continue to listen to the various fight songs on the radio and watch the endless news clips about the game, players, etc. And I will wear Steelers gear as much as possible throughout the next eight (hopefully nine or ten) days.

Here we go!

I know other cities love their teams, but how can it compare to this? Last Super Bowl, we drove to Oil City to watch the game with my brothers. This time, I think we're staying home -- all the comforts and the ability to put DVE on instead of the network announcers. Here We Go!

i hope that when you're talking about steeler nation's new president, you're talking about mike tomlin. like the rest of pittsburgh, i've been paying close attention to everything coming out of his mouth in interviews and press conferences, and i could not be more impressed with the dude. i was a big fan before, but in the past few weeks, i've MAJOR fan. i hope coach tomlin is with us for the next 20 years! GO STEELERS!!

i'm pretty sure we'll be watching from buffalo blues, so i'll make sure to high five a few strangers for you! :)

Chris: I don't believe anything can compare to this area. I am heading to the Steelers cafe for lunch today (minus the Steelers, of course), but I am sure the vibe will be good. DVE is a good call.

Ash: Yeah, Tomlin rocks. I cannot quite describe him. Some of what he says is funny to me, though it is not meant to be, I am sure. I love all the sayings, quotes, etc.

Did you get my lovely "Here we go" rendition on your cell phone?! I left one for Heather too.
