What now, Steeler Nation?
Denise Williams doesn't want the Steelers season to end.
Now that football season is over and Sundays are nothing more than the day before going back to work, Williams, 44, of St. Clair Village plans to relive the season, week by week.
"I'm going to replay the games that we watched all year," she said. "They had such a great season. I couldn't think of anything better to do with a few extra hours."
With the Penguins slumping and a Pirates team that hasn't had a winning season in 16 years, Steelers fans are looking for any outlet to occupy their time.
Ray Havic, 29, of Butler is going to paint his living room.
"My wife has been telling me to do it since last summer," Havic said. "I was busy and didn't get around to it, then Steelers season came, and you know I wasn't doing it then. Now that the season's done with, it means I have to do chores around the house, unless I find another excuse."
Duane Jackson, 31, of the Hill District plans to spend more time with his family.
"When the Steelers were playing, it was daddy time. My kids weren't allowed near me. It was like a vacation," Jackson said. "Now that the Steelers are done playing -- and especially since they won the Super Bowl -- my kids are top priority every Sunday. Movies, shopping, playing outside, we're going to have a blast."
Beechview resident Ashley Fortino, 38, plans to "pay more attention to cooking."
"If the Steelers game was on, I would just throw something together that was quick and easy so I didn't miss much," she said. "I think I'll go back to spending more time in the kitchen and making healthy meals."
Joe Gawaldo plans on getting out of the house -- and the bar -- more often.
Gawaldo, 43, of Jackson, Wyo., and formerly of Ross, watched the Super Bowl in the South Side and the parade on Grant Street before heading home today.
"I usually watch the Steelers at one of two Steelers bars, but now that the season is over, I'm going to ski," he said. "Jackson has the best skiing in the country."
It's all downhill until training camp.
