I know there are tons of Steelers fans (hopefully as Pittsburgh transplants) in the Jax area.

This list offers four "Steelers bars" in Jax: Steeler Nation - Steelers Bars (http://www.post-gazette.com/steelernation/steelerbars_list.asp#Florida - broken link)

But for the inside scoop, check this out: MySpace.com - JAXB.A.G. (Jacksonville Black and Gold) - 49 - Male - Jackson-Burgh, Florida - www.myspace.com/jaxbag

I hate the Steelers, but after an excellent experience rooting for the Jags at a Steelers bar in Chicago during last year's playoffs, I have much respect for Pittsburgh fans.

The Alibi on Edgewood Avenue is one place to watch the Steelers. I've been there a few times and that place seems to have a Steelers atmosphere.

Love Seein' a Steelers thread on a Jax message board!

A few months after moving down here, my wife and I were at the Landing the Saturday before a Steelers / Jags MNF game. You would have thought we were in Station Square (any Pittsburgher will know where I'm talking about) with all of the black and gold walking around. Of course, I had to suffer through that loss, and two more last year, before getting some sweet revenge this season.

Hey JR - I know what you mean. I get apprehensive every timne the Steelers play JA - what's up with all of their wins! Oh welk we have the last laugh! Steelers are driving me crazy this year - so much 4th Q tension!

So how are you liking Jax? We are coming down this weekend on our way to vacation and then back to Jax the beginning of Jan. Looking for a place to live - plan on moving sometime early spring.
