San Francisco 49ers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
If metals are your thing, you couldn’t help but get excited about an NFL matchup between the gold-hunting San Francisco 49ers and mill-working Pittsburgh Steelers.
The California gold rush of the 1840s and 1850s essentially made the state, while Pittsburgh’s steel mills created an industry that built America. That’s pretty cool stuff.
For bragging rights, the Steelers own more Super Bowls than any other team in the NFL, although the Niners are close behind with five rings of their own.
But for my money, the 49ers come away with the win here simply because most of us would probably rather have gold than steel.
Plus, Niner Noise is a San Francisco fan site anyway (sorry, we’re biased).
