    I've been on the site for a few months now, annoying the crap out of everyone with my opinions, but I haven't properly introduced myself.

    The crazy numbers in my name are the Super Bowls the Steelers won. They earned rings for Super Bowls 9, 10, 13, 14, 40, and 43. I get a lot of questions about the username, so I felt the need to explain it.

    Favorite current player: LaMarr Woodley. I like quiet, underrated players, though he caused a stir with his comments about the Bengals and Patriots laying low for the final game of the season. Anyway, he's overshadowed by Harrison, Polamalu, Farrior, but he's just as effective. Before the season started I got a Woodley jersey, and got a lot of "Who is 56 on the Steelers?" questions. Another is Mike Wallace. I just like it when rookies do well on any team. I had a tough time disliking Joe Flacco and Ray Rice two seasons ago, even though they're on the Ravens. But this past season, and seasons future, they're fair game.

    Favorite former player: Jerome Bettis. I'm young and wasn't alive for their hayday in the 70's. Became a fan in 2003 in the midst of their 6-10 season (I laugh at people who try calling me a bandwagoner. And like I said, I'm young), Bettis is the monumental figure that I'm going to remember for my whole life even though he retired just as I was starting to get obsessed with the team and the game of football as a whole. I also really miss Alan Faneca. I was pulling for them today against the Colts.

    Favorite Steelers Game: 2005 Divisional Round against the Colts. With the no-catch by Polamalu, and a stupid false start/offsides that kept Indy's drive going, I laugh at people who complain about the referees. A great team is one who can beat the opposition AND the refs.

    Favorite Steelers Play: Tie. One was against the Bengals in the regular season, again of 2005. Roethlisberger was in shotgun. Randle El came in motion, and either got the direct snap or was handed the ball by Roethlisberger on a reverse. Began to run upfield, then turned around and threw the ball back to Roethlisberger. Ben caught the ball, looked up field, and released a bomb to then-rookie Heath Miller for a touchdown. The other was Holmse's Super Bowl 43 game winning grab. A wild card is, for some reason, the 8 or 9 yard reception by Hines Ward that made him the franchise's leading receiver in catches.

    My father is from Pittsburgh. I've been to the city once or twice, and never to a Steelers game. I live in New England. Can't stand the Patriots, but a fan of all other Boston sports, though I don't really pay attention to them. American Football is pretty much my one and only.

    Thanks for taking me in, fellow Steelers fans. You know you're a fan of a good team when a 9-7 season is considered a disaster. I got faith in next year. Pittsburgh will be back.

    Who's your favourite current Steeler? - Lamarr Woodley the guy is a monster. He is highly underrated I love the way he plays and he always seems to make the play when it counts. He has so much potential to grow still he is only 25. I see him being a big time player for us for years to come.

    Who's your favourite former Steeler? Alan Fanaca i know he has only been gone a few years but he was one of the best guards in football and when we let him walk is when our trouble on the line began i'd kill to have him back


    What other sports do you watch, and what other teams are you a fan of? -
    Anything else you'd like to share? - I follow basketball and hockey. I'm a penguins fan and in basketball i cheer for Melo and CP3

    Something to share? I was born and raised in pittsburgh live long steelers fan and currently go to slippery rock university and major in physical education and minor in coaching

    Welcome to PSD JRM

    I miss Alan too, but our line problems began the year before he left, when Jeff Hartings retired

    I do really miss both of them though

    Been here a while but never really officially claimed my alliance with the Steelers

    Who's your favourite current Steeler? Not sure, it tends to change often but I come back to Heath Miller alot. I think and claim to all my friends he is the best TE in the NFL, blocks and catches better than anyone.

    Who's your favourite former Steeler? Kavin Greene...wasn't here really long but wasn't afraid to bring the pain.

    Are there any Steeler games you remmeber more than others? Playoff game against the colts in 05 i think it was. I was at a bar next to a colts fan...bought him two shots after ben's tackle.

    What other sports do you watch, and what other teams are you a fan of? Die hard Red Sox fan, 76ers fan, and Pens fan

    Anything else you'd like to share? My friend once played wingman to his other friend by pretending to be Joe Flacco's brother over the phone...pissed at him for not saying something bad about Unibrow.
