I have been watching Pittsburgh Sports for a long time. My first real memory is the 71 Pirate Season.

I have watched:
Two Wold Series Victories.
Six Super Bowl Victories.
Three Stanley Cup Championships.
Hall of Famers or should be Hall of Famers: Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Mel Blount, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, Mike Webster, John Stallworth, Joe Greene, Rod Woodson, Dermonti Dawson, Jerome Bettis, Hines Ward, Troy Palomalu, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Bill Mazeroski, Dave Parker, Mario Lemieux, Jaramir Jagr, Paul Coffey, Ron Francis, Joey Mullen, Tom Barasso, Sid Crosby, Geno Malkin, and many many more.

I have been to the best baseball park in America countless times.

I have been to Hienz Field, and I will eventually go to a new hockey arena.

Regardless of what the Pirates record has been the past few years, I consider myself greatly blessed.

Great perspective Animal. Pittsburgh is a great city and a great sports city as well.

Are they still attending the games with those, and weren't some of the members here apart of them?

The Iratefans website has pretty much died. It was a great idea at the time, but the changeover from McLatchy and Littlefield to Coonelly and Huntington has quelled much of the anger from would-be IrateFans.

Animal, great list, but I notice you did not include a fellow by the name of Bonds.

Add Tony Dorsett and Hugh Green to the list, too.

Pittsburgh fans have certainly been blessed. I'm a Pittsburgh fan in baseball only.. aaaargh!! And my Lions are the one pathetic franchise in Motown.

Detroit.. another city with a lot of championships (if you include Michigan & Michigan State, with Red Wings, Pistons, Tigers.. and the Shock! lol)

Meanwhile Cleveland.. nothing. Ha! They've won nothing since 1964 I love it!! My cocky former co-workers aren't wearing Chief Wahoo these days. He he! And I'm not counting Ohio State. I take great delight in Cleveland teams losing (Le Bron needs to leaves though.. he worries me. )

The Cavs are my basketball team and they have been since before Lebron got there,living on the Pennsylvania Ohio line there is no home team so we cling onto the Cavs because they are only alittle over an hour away. Darius Miles was my favorite player when i started to like them :lol: , but what did Cleveland win in 1964?

1964 - Browns beat the Colts (before the Super Bowl existed.) Jim Brown was the man!

The Indians haven't won since 1948 I think.

Wow i forgot about that. They killed the Colts. Didn't they shut them out like 30-0.
I follow the Indians as my American league team and yeah it was 1948, they have made it there a couple times but flopped. I think the Indians need to go back to their old logo when they last won and see if it helps, because they have had teams that should have won and they have just blown it.
