Is That How They Know Us?

The NFL has tallied up all the pink jersey sales and determined that the Pittsburgh Steelers have the most female fans.

The article is not crystal clear that they only counted up the pink jerseys to reach this conclusion. Apparently, they also took some kind of survey.

Thirty four percent of women living in the Pittsburgh Steelers' markets identify themselves as Steelers fans. Furthermore, over three hundred women pay good money each year to go through a simulated Steelers training camp complete with blocking and running drills and a trip to the training table (which sounds cool as hell). They also get to go to a football knowledge camp. No word on whether this service is provided to ignorant male fans as well.

The team with the next largest amount of female fans is the Green Bay Packers with a little over 29% of women identifying themselves as fans. Buffalo was third with 23.7 percent, followed by Cincinnati (22.8 percent), Kansas City (22.4 percent), Jacksonville (21.7 percent), Baltimore and Boston (21.5 percent) and Denver, Tampa-St. Petersburg and Washington, D.C. (20.9 percent).

It seems a curious mixture of cold weather and facial scruff tweak the interest of the female fan, if not the pink jersey.

Are you talking about my mother?

I really hope not.

I was raised to be a Steeler fan by my MOTHER...not my father.

Growing up in Pittsburgh, girls are raised to be Steelers fans just as boys are.

The whole notion of football being for men and women watching lifetime doesnt wash in Pittsburgh.

Girls are raised on Football just as boys are. They just don't play.

as much.
