Steeler Fans Attend Rally Downtown

Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh today held a "Cage the Cards" rally between Ross and Grant streets. Hundreds of Steelers fans gathered between the County Courthouse and the City County Building to cheer their team to victory in the super bowl. Area high school marching bands and cheerleaders were present to encourage the crowd and County Executive Dan Onorato and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke "SteelerStahl" helped to lead chants and let fans know that there will be a victory parade if the Steelers win their 6Th super bowl. Money and non perishable foods were also collected in order to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Fans also had the chance to throw eggs at a person in a cardinal suit and many fans had signs declaring the supremacy of the Steelers over the rest of the NFL.
