Franco's Italian Army

Ok, so I haven't blogged in a few weeks ... sue me, it's the off-season. Seriously, other than celebs dying and ex-pro athletes getting a 9MM clip unloaded into them while they're sleeping, there really hasn't been much going on so I'm just enjoying my summer by swimming at the pool and going to kick-ass 4th of July barbeques at the parents house back in the burgh. I figured if you wanted news on any of this other shit going on in the world, you have just about every television station and internet blog in the world to get your daily dose of depression.

Want to step back into a time that made Steeler Nation what it is today? Check this video out of Franco's Italian Army. This video really captures the unfettered affection that Pittsburgh Steelers fans and the players shared for each other and fed off of. The Italian Army gang captured the ethnicity of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area of Western PA and epitomized the "family" feeling Steeler fans share regardless of where they are in the world. There's no question in my mind that the Steeler 70's just wouldn't have been the same without these pioneers in addition to the color and atmosphere added by our own beloved Myron Cope. -- Enjoy!
