This past Sunday, Steelers Today had the privilege of watching the Steelers-Bengals game with the Steelers Fans of Rochester. I came upon the Steelers Fans of Rochester when I decided to try to find a Steelers bar in Rochester, New York.
Located approximately 1 hour from Buffalo, Rochester is in the heart of Buffalo Bills country. In fact, the Bills hold their annual training camp at St. John Fisher College in Rochester. Obviously, that make Rochester hostile territory as far as Steelers fans are concerned. In addition to all of the Bills fans, Rochester also has a large base of New York Giants and New York Jets supporters. But nestled in the midst of all of that enemy territory, I found an oasis of black and gold.
The Steelers Fans of Rochester are a Steelers fan club that meets for each Steelers game, just like hundreds of other Steelers fan clubs around the country world. Not only does the club meet to support the Steelers, the club’s leaders, Kathy, Cindy, Art, Chuck, and Diana, also collect money at each event to be donated to charity. This year’s charity is the Golisano Childrens Hospital. Last year, they collected over $1,300 for Special Olympics.
If you ever find yourself in Rochester, and you’re looking for a place to watch the Steelers, consider hooking up with the Steelers Fans of Rochester. They meet at Six Pockets Billiard Cafe, which is located at 716 E. Ridge Road in Rochester, NY. They’re a great group of devoted Steelers fans. Tell them that you heard about them on Steelers Today.
Special thanks to Kevin Leysath of CreativEye Photo in Rochester, NY. CreativeEye Photo took a beautiful photo of the group. Unfortunately, I had to crop it and shrink it down to fit this website. Sorry Kevin.
