I knew that was where our logo came from. Anything made from steel you can see the logo on there.....i kinda thought this was common knowledge.

Pittsburgh is so poor that they can only afford to put the logo on one side of the helmet.

Baltimore: gets team from Cleveland
Cincy: stadium is named after namesake of Cleveland's team
Cleveland: Cleveland

I've always liked the Steelers uni's,especially the home ones.I used to have a pair of pj's,complete with footies,modeled after their uniform.Didn't live in Pitt,my dad wasn't a big Pitt fan or anything so I have no idea why I had'em.Just one of those things ya kinda accept as a kid I guess.

An even bigger surprise: the idea for the Steelers to wear it came from, of all cities, Cleveland.



Absolute blasphemy!
Though it is funny that Pittsburgh can get their logo from the town that couldn't think of anything to put on it's own helmets. And this from a guy who's hometown team has a gay Lion on it's helmet.........not that there's anything wrong with that. :-b
