Hines Ward said when he was drafted in the 3rd round in 1998, “Now that I’m here, I don’t want to just be here, I want to be here for a long time.”
Ward has become just about synonymous with the name Steelers. He embodies the tradition of that organization through his work, dedication, love of the game, physicality and a smile that even the devil himself couldn’t rip off his face. (More on Ward in a post or two)
I hope that I can serve this page and FanSided the way Ward has served the Steelers for more than a decade. And even though I currently reside in the land of Cheeseheads (yeah, let’s not even get started with what I have to deal with on a daily basis, even before the Super Bowl), I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and am as passionate a fan as the season ticket holder who dons the hard hat, paints his face black and gold and screams until his voice is just a whisper after game day.
I hope that the content I and future staff provide will help your feed your appetite for all that is Steeler Nation. Thanks to Adam, Zach and Patrick for the opportunity to take the reigns. Feel free to comment on any and all things posted. Now let’s get this thing started…
