Welcome a long time ago @Displayname!

I’d love to have my own gym. It would definitely make this pandemic more bearable.

I’m very blessed with it. Same goes for the dog!

First Name: Adam

Age: 41

Location: Gaithersburg, MD - it’s 25 miles north of DC

Job(s): Lobbyist for a Labor Union

College/Degree: I have my BS in BS, no jk, well I do have a bachelor of science (BS) in Government. I went to WVU for 2 years but transferred to be closer to my GF and graduated from Towson University, it’s about 15-20 miles north of Baltimore in Baltimore County.

Favorite Pastimes: Sports, Cars & fast women! Haha 🤣 

Favorite Movies/Shows: The Neighborhood, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, anything history, anything action or comedy.

Favorite Current/Past Steeler: TJ Watt/Jack Lambert.

My dad went to Kent State when Nick Saban and Lambert were there but they were older than him by a year or 2. My dad said Lambert used to sit by himself at lunch, he was super skinny and just looked mad and mean all the time.

Goals in life: To grow up some day! Not there yet, hopefully I get there though!
 

So, I just want to talk about my Steelers fandom which some of you may know already as I’ve been on and off this forum for the last 12-13 years.

My parents were born and are from Bellaire, OH, it’s a small town on the Ohio River right across from Wheeling, WV. So, my dad was a coal miner in the 70s, they went on strike for 111 days in 1978 and he applied for a job at the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) Headquarters in Washington, DC. He got a job there and at the same time my mom had just gotten pregnant with me. So, they moved to Maryland near where she had family that lived in Rockville, MD bc my great-uncle’s father-in-law had also worked at the headquarters for the UMWA.

Needless to say, I was born a Steelers fan. My parents lived only 45 minutes from Pittsburgh but in Ohio during the greatest decade of the Steelers organization, the 70s.

As you all know, I’m also a Redskins fan. I became a Redskins fan in kindergarten bc all of my friends were Redskins fans and at that time the Redskins were good to great and the Steelers were mostly average in the mid 80s until Cowher was hired in the early 90s, so I like both teams.

Welcome(sort of) @turtle28

Your job seems interesting. I have a lot of thoughts on lobbying and Unions, not the time or place, though. I'm a teacher deep in the heart of a non-union state.

I forgot to mention, I did graduate from college in Raven Country when they won their first Super Bowl & Jamal Lewis was their running back. I saw him at the mall once signing autographs.

Funny story: I was wearing my Washington Redskins Lavar Arrington Jersey from 2000. And Poe - the Ravens mascot - saw me in the food court of the mall and started to fake fight me! Haha 🤣
