Photo: This Is Why Pittsburgh's A Great Sports City

Casey Hampton, from the state of Texas, and Deshea Townsend, from Alabama, taking in a hockey game and pounding the glass in celebration after Marian Hossa's game-winning goal against the New York Rangers in the conference semifinals?

You serious?


Just as the whole city gets behind the Steelers, so too do the Steelers players get behind the other hometown teams.  Mellon Arena has been absolutely hopping (at least it sure looks/sounds that way on TV) these playoffs. Having Big Snack and Deshea in the house to add the decibal levels and buzz surrounding the Pens chase to the Cup is a beautiful thing.
