I'm a huge Steelers and Penguins fan, but baseball bores me to tears, so I'm not a Pirates fan. Went to my first ever Pirates game last season, and the stadium was awesome but the game itself doesn't do it for me at all. At baseball games (at the major or minor league level...I may go to one game all summer), I end up being one of those fans who care more about in-stadium experiences than focusing on the game itself (whereas I am completely the opposite at Steelers or Penguins games...even minor league hockey...completely focused on the game...I never leave my seat even for a bathroom break, unless my kids are with me of course).

Some people say when Steelers play in J-ville, it's 50-50 Jags/Steelers fans. That is an exaggeration. It may be like 30% Steeler fans, which is a lot.
A relative of mine who lives in Jax says that the Florida Gators are the only football team that anyone in Jax cares about these days.

I have mad respect for Browns fans having lived in Cleveland for 3 years. Their love for their team is tangible and their hatred for everything Steeler is as well. Got to respect that.
