What's an appropriate wine to serve at a Pittsburgh Steelers themed party? What wine would be a good gift for a hard core Steelers fan? Steeler Nation Wherever you go in the U. S., you will find fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. In fact, the team is so popular that its fans are called the "Steeler Nation." You can join Steelers fan clubs in nearly every major U. S. city, including Atlanta, Kansas City and Tampa. Part of the reason for all of this enthusiasm is the team's long history; founded in 1933 as the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Steelers are the fifth-oldest National Football League team. The main reason, however, for the Steelers' popularity with fans is the team's outstanding record. No other team has won as many Super Bowls – six – as the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers' all-time roster includes some of the greatest names in professional football history: Ernie Stautner, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Greene, Lynn Swann, Franco Harris, John Stallworth, Jack Lambert, and, of course, current quarterback "Big Ben" Ben Roethlisberger.
