Living In A Pittsburgh Steelers Sanctuary

Mr. George Danesky may just live within the most "Steerler-fied" home known to man, and he doesn't even reside in Pittsburgh. Danesky, a 62-year-old from South Fayette, now lives in Blue Ridge, Georgia and has devoted half of his home to the Steelers: "We live in a 5000 sq.ft. house. The basement is 2500 sq. ft Every inch of that 2500 sq. ft. is painted in official NFL Steeler gold and all trim is black. The entire basement is dedicated to, used for games, partying, and display of our thousands of Steeler items."

The average visitor considers the home a "museum" of collections that began when Danesky was just a child and acquired a Bobby Layne football card. Needless to say, he's come a long way. Interestingly enough, Danesky's "most prized possession" is now on display in the Great Hall at Heinz Field: a pair of tribute plaques to Art Rooney, Sr. and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau along with a poem dedicated to Rooney entitled "The Heartbeat."

For every game day, the Danesky's, of course, throw a party amongst their Steelers' shrine. And sitting in the midst of the memorabilia isn't quite enough: kielbasa from the Strip, pierogies from Pierogies Plus in McKees Rocks, (both shipped from Pittsburgh), Heinz condiments, I.C. Light - these elements are essential. There are also rituals: a prayer while holding a football signed by Art Rooney, Sr. When the Steelers score, a siren from an old Pittsburgh firehouse must be rung. I'll go out on a limb and say these things will be probably be happening come February 6.

Everyone must believe in something. Danesky believes in the Steelers. And who can blame him?
