I was a late bloomer to Steelers Nation (about 12 years old or so) but don’t let the slow start to my fandom fool you: I live for The Pittsburgh Steelers. Writing about them is not only a privilege, but also enjoyable. I keep it positive, both in life and in regards to the Steelers. Correcting yinzers is a hobby. Peace, love, and Pittsburgh Steelers football.
