Them’s fightin’ words – New England Patriots vs Pittsburgh Steelers

How a Dad who lives in Rhode Island builds team loyalty for his hometown team…

I was born in Michigan and lived everywhere from Maine to California as a kid, but I’ve lived in New England since I was 9 years old.

My Nana, my Mom and her 6 siblings were born and grew up in Boston.

My husband was born in Providence, Rhode Island.

My 4 kids were all born in Providence and all live in Rhode Island with their families.

7 of my grandchildren were born in Providence – Patriots’ territory – and 2 were born in New York City.

My son-in-law was born in Pittsburgh but lives in Rhode Island with my daughter and their 4 sons.

These little guys are 2 of their 4 sons, all Steelers fans…

vs.

Fans and football and “jackasses.”

It makes for a lively rivalry.

  1. Just to be clear…I’m in agreement with my son-in-law Matt about being loyal to your team.
    He’s loyal to the Steelers, as well he should be….
    And I’m loyal to the “Best” team in the NFL
    The New England Patriots!
