John Church of Just Marketing has worked in the sports industry for more than two decades, and has developed an intense love of certain sports teams. While he enjoys watching many different sports, he is a big football fan, and a proud supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Established in 1933, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the only National Football League team for the state of Pennsylvania aside from the Philadelphia Eagles. The two teams only meet on the field once every four years due to how the league games are scheduled. The Steelers weren’t always known by that name, however, they were originally called the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1933 until 1939. In 1940 the franchise was renamed the Pittsburgh Steelers, and for the most part has used that moniker exclusively.
For the last fifteen years, the Steelers have played all of their home games at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. The team is a part of the American Football Conference, or AFC division. The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a successful career overall with twenty-nine playoff appearances, twenty-one division championships, and eight conference championships to their credit. The Pittsburgh Steelers have won six Super Bowl championships between 1974 and 2008. They boast victories in Super Bowls number nine, ten, thirteen, fourteen, forty, and forty three. Though the Pittsburgh Steelers have not attended or won a Super Bowl in recent years, John Church of Just Marketing is still a diehard fan. He roots for his team no matter who they are playing.
