Why Steelers?



A few years ago i was faced with a question, which NFL team should i go for? At first i did what any 14 year old male would do, and checked who had the hottest cheerleaders. But that only lead me to Dallas, who i ceratinly wasnt going to go for. I ended up deciding on Seattle. But i wanted a team whith heart, passion, and ruthless efficiency, a team that got the job done. And i found that with the Steelers. I loved the collossus of Big Ben, the pure strength and leadership. I loved the pace of FWP, the poetry in motion style of Santonio Holmes. I adored the non-conformity of Hines Ward, his bravery and determination. Heath Miller with his strength and reliability was an instant favourite. I loved how the defence worked as a unit. The Strength of Casey Hampton, the skill of Polamalu and the heart of Ryan Clark. I watched in awe as the linebackers ground down the opposition with ruthless efficiency, under the leadership of Farrior and Harrisson. Most of all I love the unsung heroesof Keisel, Smith and Kirshcke, the all down-all day workhorses, the players who make our defensive unit work, even though not many non-steelers fans know them. This is why I chose the steelers, not because of the success of the franchise, or one particular player in general, but because each player was an integral part of the TEAM, and could step up and make that first down, and drive that extra yard.

 

As an Aussie, i dont have a college team, so i decided to pick one. While watching the Stanford-Oregon game something caught my eye. A huge running back by the mane of Gerhart, as he wore number 7, he reminded me of our very own Big Ben. His leadership, strength and ability to step up and put his body on the line for the team. So i now go for Stanford

 

Thanks for Listening to this stupid sentimental drivel from a bored- yet- inspired steelers fan all the way from australia, who has nothing betterto do with his nights than write such garbage. But i hope you feel the same way about the steelers as i do.

Cheers
