Western Avenue Peppi’s Sandwich Shop
. Just a quick walk from Heinz Field, this friendly joint has old-school steak sandwiches, sides of fries, and walls laden with photos memorializing visiting Steelers and other celebs. 

Paper Lion
. Bone up for next year’s 50th anniversary of George Plimpton’s famed book about “trying out” for the 1963 Detroit Lions.

Steelers Standpipe
. Because there is nothing that cannot be improved by adding the Steelers logo.

All the Right Moves. Need some relief from all the gloomy news about real-life football? This 1983 Tom Cruise film follows one outstanding high school football player from a dying Western Pa. mill town (filmed in Johnstown).

Empty Grocery Stores. No better time for nonsports fans to go grocery shopping than during a Steelers game. No other carts in your way and there's always an open register.
