To some, November says Thanksgiving and a time to fully embrace the autumn weather, but in Pittsburgh, the fall really only means one thing: the arrival of football season. To commemorate the team’s 80th NFL season, Sports Illustrated has published Pittsburgh Steelers: Pride in Black and Gold. The coffee table collector’s item takes readers on a visual tour of our hometown heroes’ triumphs. More than 150 vivid photos depict legends from the “Steel Curtain” era at Three Rivers Stadium to the present-day roster at Heinz Field. Acclaimed Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Tim Layden prefaces the book, commending Steelers football as an institution buried deep in the soul of our city. Talk about hometown pride! Available wherever books are sold. Pittsburgh Steelers, steelers.com.
