Steelers Erie Connection

The newest Pittsburgh Steelers player, kick returner Allen Rossum, married into the Erie Diaspora. His wife and her family are Steelers fans, Mr. Rossum noting that they did have a choice:

"My wife is from Erie, Pa., and is not a Buffalo Bills fan," declared Rossum, who played at Notre Dame.

Mr. Rossum is missing one-third of the Erie football fan equation. My father's generation tended to cheer for the Cleveland Browns. That's right: A Browns fan begat this Steelers fan.
