Brendan Driscoll, Staff Writer

Brendan was born and raised in Connecticut. Luckily he avoided becoming a dreaded New England Patriots fan thanks to Kordell Stewart and Bill Cowher's chin. His Steelers fandom reached a pinnacle in 2004, when he met the eventual Super Bowl Champion Steelers team thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He also supports the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, and the UConn Huskies. He recently graduated from college and has been freelancing about high school sports for a local newspaper.

Jason Brichta, Staff Writer

Born in Eastern Pennsylvania, being and Eagles fan wasn't an option (nor should it have been.) Have an amazing wife and daughter, living in Ohio State country. I make sure to get to at least one live game each year, as the football Mecca is only three hours away! I'm passionate about the Steelers and football in general.

Justin Roem, Staff Writer

Born in the suburbs of New York City, Justin narrowly avoided being a fan of the New York Giants thanks to a waning interest in the game on the parts of his parents. A favorite cousin out in Pittsburgh awakened a love of football for Justin, and he's bled black and gold ever since. Now, relocated behind enemy lines in Baltimore, Maryland, Justin, 24, has found his love of all things Steelers a more identifying trait than ever. Even a year living in Europe and international business trips haven't meant missing games. That is the dedication that comes with being a fan of the greatest team in sports!

About FanSided

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
