Pittsburgh's convention and tourism bureau is looking for the most enthusiastic Steelers fan in the world, says spokeswoman Beverly Morrow-Jones. VisitPittsburgh is accepting videos and photographs of extreme team spirit from now until January 28th. The winner of the contest will receive two tickets to a future home game, a Steelers jersey and a Super Bowl XL game ball. this is the second time VisitPittsburgh launched a fan search. The first was three years ago when the Steelers were in Superbowl XL. Creativity is encouraged in contestants. The winner of the 2006 contest carved pumpkins into football helmets and wore them to October home games. Morrow-Jones says there are more than 800 Steelers bars across the world, and the 2006 contest drew fans from as far away as Alaska and New Zealand.
