Steeler Nation: 23-min documentary from Dec2006

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is a-goin' on here? How in heck did I miss seeing this video for more than two whole years?

You might want to have your Terrible Towel handy for Kleenex duty when you watch this, especially if you're an Exile or the offspring of one.

From the film, here's interviewee Scott Paulsen (from WDVE) taking issue with the way network announcers tend to declaim the Travelability of Steeler fans (and this is a point I've been yelling back at the TV for decades):

"It's amazing to us, the people that still live here, when we watch a national broadcast where there's probably 10,000 or 12,000 Steeler fans. You'll hear the announcer say, 'Well this Steeler team, they travel well'. And that's not the case at all - we're already there."
