It's a good time to be living near Pittsburgh!! We are about an hour outside of the city which means 99.9% of the people around here are major Steeler fans.
All last week everything turned to black and gold. Schools had Steeler days, businesses dropped dress codes so everyone could wear their Steeler jerseys and t-shirts. It was EVERYWHERE. Even at church. People who always come in their Sunday best were wearing black and gold this week, terrible towels hanging out of pockets.
And what happens after they win the superbowl? Everyone continues wearing their black and gold proudly for the rest of the year. Schools had delays this morning... not because of the weather! It's all anyone seems to be able to talk about today and it's all that is on the news. It's a big deal.
And it is definitely exciting.... however I have to admit I am happy the football season is over for a while and soon people will be able to talk about something other than the Steelers again.
