    It's not Tom Brady's team ...

    Paging Junkie. Paging poor, suffering Browns fan Junkie....

    I'm not even a tiny bit surprised. The obsession with football, particularly the Steelers, in Pittsburgh is either amazing or pathetic, depending on your point of view.

    Nothing matters in that city like the Steelers do. Nothing.

    Yet GB has a more populated fandom in its own city than does Pittsburgh.

    And for the no sh!t sherlock factoid in this survey:
    "-- Fans who are Hispanic: Miami-Fort Lauderdale, 12.1 percent."

    Also, I think it's interesting that most of those cities, save for Jacksonville, are in mostly "cold" cities. I guess the women in "warm" cities follow other sports, other teams?

    Or they have better things to do? While 34% of the women in the Pittsburgh area identified themselves as Steelers fans, wouldn't that mean 66% wouldn't be?

    It doesn't say whether there was a qualifying question like "Are you a football/sports fan?", or if respondents expressed a preference for another NFL franchise that wasn't from the city they lived in.

    That is just among men, IJAG. Pittsburgh's edge over Green Bay among women is larger (34 to 29.4 percent). And Cleveland isn't anywhere close to either Pittsburgh or Green Bay. But again, this was asking people to identify themselves as Browns fans and that must be a truly painful thing to do.

    True...actually those percentages seem a bit low for all the cities mentioned.

    And it doesn't take into account the huge following the Steelers have nationwide, with the combination of large numbers of people who grew up on the teams of the '70s and displaced former residents of Pittsburgh like myself.

    More recreational options in the winter months.

    And, at least in the South, I would hazard that college football gets a lot football allegiance over the pro version.

    I know of plenty of women in the South who will latch on to one of the major university football programs and not give pros time of day.

    But please, ladies ... team colors. Leave the pink jerseys and caps - excepting those sold with obvious intentions to fund medical research and such - on the shelves and warehouse bins.
