Giving thanks for Steelers Nation on this Thanksgiving Day

New, comments

On this Thanksgiving Day, it is important for me to give thanks to you...the BTSC faithful.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

On this Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone here who makes BTSC the thriving haven for Steelers fans it is.

Yes, this is a job for me, but I love the job. Writing about the black-and-gold has been a dream come true for me, and I absolutely treasure writing here at BTSC. The best part about all of this? I can still be a fan. I love the Steelers. I root for the Steelers, and SB Nation gives me a platform to do just that. I don’t have to be stuck up and not show my favoritism towards Pittsburgh. I stand up, yell and scream at the television like all of you probably do throughout the games.

For that, I thank SB Nation for allowing, and encouraging, all of their writers to remain fans of the teams they cover.

I want to thank my family, mainly my wife, for allowing this 34-year-old man to still write about a kid’s game, and there are times when it takes up a lot of time. She is more than understanding, and throughout our 10-years of marriage has become a huge fan of all things Pittsburgh.

For that, I thank my amazing wife.

Most importantly, I want to thank you, the readers, for making this website what it is today. Many of you have been here from the beginning, and some might just be in their rookie year at BTSC. What you will come to find out is this is one amazing cast of characters which makes up our amazing community. Sure, things can get dicey from time-to-time, but when it all comes down to it, we all want the same things — Steelers victories.

For that, I thank each and every one of you who visit the site multiple times a day, your enthusiasm for the team motivates me to be better at what I do. Thank you.

I hope everyone enjoys this Thanksgiving day. Spend time with family and friends, and if you can’t do that, swing by BTSC and there will certainly be someone who will electronically watch all the Thanksgiving day games with you!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Enjoy it, and HERE WE GO STEELERS!
