On Saturday evening, Steelers Nation Unite members were once again recognized for their support of the Steelers on the road, this time in Atlanta in anticipation of Sunday's matchup with the Falcons.
Holding true to the notion that Steelers fans travel from everywhere for games, members at the event hailed from across the country, including California, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee and, of course, Georgia.
Former players and current Steelers broadcasters Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley took time to interact with the crowd at the event, answering questions and sharing stories from their playing days as Steelers, much to the delight of all in attendance.
Along with receiving 'SNU Road Warrior' certificates, members and guests in attendance were given gold Steelers Nation Unite t-shirts to wear to Sunday's game as part of a "Gold Rush" at the Georgia Dome. Through the Weekly Huddle, a weekly message sent to Steelers Nation Unite members, Steelers fans are asked to wear gold to Sunday's game to show the presence of Steelers Nation in Atlanta.
Earlier this week, Steelers Nation Unite members got the chance to connect with defensive end and team sack leader Cameron Heyward through an interactive video chat. Fans can check out what Heyward had to say as he answered questions submitted by Steelers Nation Unite members here: http://www.steelers.com/fan-zone/weekly-huddle-event.html
