And just because I see #10 is about Denver. I am reminded that we all need to be kind to the visiting reporters that will be coming to town for the San Diego game. Who can forget our BFF from Colorado: Denver's Bill Johnson and his infamous columns about Pittsburgh before and after the 2006 AFC Championship game. It's just such a Pittsburgh story.
Johnson was not the first journalist to be inspired to write about Pittsburgh because of a football game. Not to mention this because of my own quote in there, but worth a read is a column written by Seattle's Bill Virgin leading up to the Superbowl a few weeks after Johnson's piece. It's a diaspora story as well actually. I forget the specifics, but I think Mr. Virgin told me at the time he was from near Pittsburgh in West Virginia.
