A traveling friend found a bar near the Los Angeles airport, [Steelers President Arthur J. Rooney II] Rooney said. "In one corner of the place he saw Steelers fans and walked up and tried to talk to them, but they all spoke Spanish. Mexico is a big Steelers nation, so to speak, and we recently put a Spanish language element to our Web site because so many Steelers fans speak Spanish."
Fabulous! I went to the Steelers website and surfed around for a while, but I couldn't find any Spanish-language material. Can anyone help me out?
Of course, the Spanish-speaking Steelers diaspora may also be the key to turning around the region's failure to attract Latino immigrants in large numbers. Who needs jobs? Who needs acceptance by natives? The Allegheny Conference should send this message to Latino communities around the U.S. and to Central and South America: Move to Pittsburgh, and the Steelers will get you you season tickets and a Big Ben jersey. Uno para el pulgar!
UPDATE: Steelers en espanol! (Thanks to Rust Belt. It was staring me right in the face!)
