Yes, there's some overlap, but I just think it's silly to hate the Pirates because of Steelers fans being total jackasses.
I guess I would be an exception to the rule. I've been a Steelers fan since I was a little kid and the Pirates are my favorite NL team. I remember some about Clemente, but it was the Stargell - "We Are Family" era that drew my interest.
Even though I'm a lifelong Chicagoan, I've always liked the Pittsburgh teams. The Pirates will never replace the Sox atop my list, nor the Penguins instead of the Hawks, but I just like Pittsburgh teams.
