Steeler nation factoids
In the CP Potter comments on the seemingly subdued Super Bowl fever this time around. (will add link when CP puts it online). He has a point, but has anyone noticed just how cold it has been? I think everything has been subdued of late just trying to trudge through the snow, ice, sleet and associated muck. That and we are allowed to be a little bit jaded: One for the Other Thumb is not as pressing an issue as it might be.
But he did highlight a quote in the PG I didn't catch. Speaking of the large number of Steelers Bars and fans out in Arizona they quote a denizen out there who thought:
Cuyahoga County, OH - 5,431
Maricopa County, AZ - 5,211
Franklin County, OH - 4,778
Cook County, IL - 4,469
Fairfax County, VA - 4,393
Los Angeles, CA - 4,124
Mecklenburg County, NC - 4,075
Montgomery County, MD - 3,549
Manhattan (New York County, NY) - 3,495
Broward County, FL - 3,477
So next to Cuyahoga County, i.e. Cleveland, it really is almost true that Maricopa County is at the top. If we went back further (which I don't have easy data to use) it could easily be that Maricopa County is number one. And this type of data only looks at a single migration decision. Given that a fair number of folks from Cleveland (and other places, just using the example) later move on to places like Maricopa County... it could easily be the case that there are more born Pittsburgher's in Maricopa County than anywhere else in the nation.
If that list looks different from anything you have seen from me in the past, this is county level data which comes out a bit different. So only people leaving Allegheny County broken down by the county that they went to. Maybe I will slice it some other ways before the end of the week.
