Hometown: Champion, Pennsylvania
Season Ticket Holder Since: 2011
Michael was nominated to be Season Ticket Holder of the Game because: He has made a family tradition of attending Steelers games. His daughter was born in 1970, and Michael raised her to "bleed black and gold." Now that he is a Season Ticket Holder, he attends the games with his daughter, wife, and brother-in-law. They tailgate each home game in the Cardello parking lot. Michael's daughter gifted him a three-foot-tall, carved bear statue dressed in a Jerome Bettis jersey, and while the bear cannot attend the games, he is always present for the tailgates!
Favorite current player: Chris Boswell
Favorite all-time player: Terry Bradshaw
Favorite Steelers moment: Michael's favorite Steelers moment was Ben Roethlisberger's shoestring tackle to prevent a scoop-and-score for Indianapolis in the Steelers vs. Colts AFC Divisional playoff game.
First Steelers game: Michael's first game was Steelers vs. Browns on October 5, 2003.
Farthest away game trip: Houston, Texas
