For today’s #WoofWednesday, we are featuring Charlie of Dothan, Ala. who, like his dad, is a huge Steelers fan. Titans too, but “I haven’t bought him any gear yet,” says mom Jozanna. Better hurry, since Tennessee is Pittsburgh’s first opponent this year on Sept. 8. (And congrats to mom and dad, also expecting a baby of the non-furry variety!)
By the way, you don’t have to be a fan of a team to know their key players. For the Steelers:
* Mike Tomlin is the head coach, one of three black NFL coaches (also Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati and Leslie Frazier, Minnesota).
* Ben Roethlisberger is the quarterback with a controversial past including a motorcycle crash and a sexual assault charge.
* Troy Polamalu is the marvelously-maned strong safety you see in all the Head and Shoulders commercials.
* Terry Bradshaw is currently a “FOX NFL Sunday” commentator, but was the Steelers QB for 14 seasons in the 70s, winning four Super Bowls in six years. He made the Hall of Fame in 1989, the first year he was eligible.
