A few hundred people showed up for a noontime rally sponsored by Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh on Thursday.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Green Bay Packers in the Superbowl on Sunday.
Allegheny County Executive and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl spoke at the rally and symbolically destroyed a wedge of cheese.
Students were there from Gateway High School, Pittsburgh Brashear High School and Thomas Jefferson High School.
Many of the people there were dressed in extreme black and yellow costumes. The rally also consisted of waving around terrible towels, a player look-alike contest and complimentary food and refreshments.
