When it comes to loyalty, Steelers fans can't be topped.
And that was on display Saturday night when Steelers Nation showed up in record numbers, over 3,000 of them, for the Steelers Nation Unite Road Warrior Block Party at Harold's Cave Creek Corral ahead of the Steelers-Cardinals game on Sunday.
Steelers Nation Unite hosted a Road Warrior block party for fans at Harold's Cave Creek Corral in Cave Creek, AZ, which featured appearances by Steelers Legends Mel Blount, Merril Hoge and Santonio Holmes
The place was packed with fans in their black and gold, coming from all over to show their love and support for the Steelers.Fans came from Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Vancouver, Hawaii, and even Naples, Italy for the game. And it's safe to say there are plenty of Steelers fans living right in Phoenix.
And it's safe to say a good time was had by all.
Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley opened the evening with a game preview and a Q & A with the fans. Steelers legends Mel Blount, Merril Hoge, Santonio Holmes and Louis Lipps were also on hand, with Hoge hosting a Q & A with Blount and Holmes. The WDVE Morning Show crew was also on hand, hosting a one-hour show with interviews with the players and helping to keep the crowd fired up, as if they needed anything else to fire them up.
There were also plenty of giveaways, from footballs signed by Terrell Edmunds and Vance McDonald, mini helmets signed by Bud Dupree and JuJu Smith-Schuster, and signed copies of A Different Way to Win – Dan Rooney's Story.
And no night would be complete with Renegade blaring through the speakers to end the fun.
