Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania I am a natural fan of every Pittsburgh sports team. Although I take time to root for and get excited about the Penguins and Pirates, the Steelers are by far my favorite team to root for. Growing up under the roof of a high school football coach exposed me to a lot of techniques, strategies and intricacies of the game from the teachings of my father. I thoroughly enjoyed playing high school football at Taylor Allderdice High and to this day enjoy watching, playing and talking about the sport at any opportunity. As an adolescent I developed my admiration for the Steelers while watching games with my father and grandfather, who passed shortly before the Super Bowl XL win. To this day my family will be on a conference call during almost every game so everyone can catch up during the game, talk about what is happening and enjoy the team's successes together. My fanaticism was only intensified in my four years away from Pittsburgh at Cheyney University. Being among a majority of Eagles fans and a mix of other fans of teams such as the Cowboys, Giants, Redskins and Ravens who had nothing but spite for Steelers fans only made me have that much more appreciation for my favorite team. Especially when they would go on to win a Super Bowl and 2 AFC championships during my team there. In my four years of undergraduate education, the Ravens never beat Ben Roethlisberger; that steamed up all the Baltimore fans pretty good every year. Espcially when they lost twice to Pittsburgh in the playoffs during those times. Today I am back home after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. I missed the family, the small-big-city feel that comes with Pittsburgh and being around a majority of other Steeler fans. While I spend most of my time working, volunteering for various local organizations and hanging out with friends, I always budget my time to see the Steelers game each week no matter their standing that season.
