Inspired by the overwhelming fan base that is Steeler Nation, Josh Miller, a former Steelers punter and current host on 93.7 The Fan, teamed up with beer connoisseur and successful businessman Shawn Allen to meet as many of these fans as they could. Their mission: Visit 100 Steelers bars across the country in one football season. The result: The visually entertaining and informative book “Always a Home Game: Our Journey Through Steelers Country in 140 Days.” “No matter where we went, the bars were packed,” Miller says. “It’s more than watching a game; it’s like being part of a family.” And, his favorite part about visiting the members of his extended Steelers family was having the support of Art Rooney. “I asked him, ‘Wouldn’t you love to say thank you to every Steeler fan across the country?’ And, he said, ‘I’d love to, but that’s impossible.’ This made that possible.”
