Steeler Nation

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 9/19/2007

Hoosier favorite team?

INDIANAPOLIS -- There's a wide slice of Steeler Nation in Indianapolis, Ind., smack dab in the heart of Peyton Manning and Colts country. That team's success over the past several seasons has done little to sway the loyalties of the black and gold allegiance. And you might be surprised to learn there are a number of fans who cheer on the Steelers each week here who have no ties to Pittsburgh whatsoever.

Each week, Steelers fans gather at the Nickel Plate Bar and Grill, just outside Indianapolis in Fishers, Ind. Among these are Amy Burchfield, a 35-year-old native of Toronto, Ohio, and Jason Zanjeski, 33, originally from Weirton, W.Va. They now live in nearby Noblesville, Ind. The two...plan to marry Nov. 10 in Weirton. Each has a personalized Steeler jersey with his and her future last name on the back. Jason wears No. 11 and Amy No. 10 to acknowledge their upcoming wedding date... Part of their wedding celebration includes tickets to the Browns game at Heinz Field (November 11).

Now that’s what I call a honeymoon!
