Billy Mays, who grew up outside of Pittsburgh, was a Steelers fan.  If Billy was hired by the Rooney family to do a commercial, it would go something like this:


"Hey, I'm Billy Mays here with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Are you tired of sitting at home watching your football team give up touchdown after touchdown, and they can't score themselves.  Well, do I have a surprise stored for you.  It's the Pittsburgh Steelers!  The Pittsburgh Steelers have the best defense in the NFL AND they have an unbelievable setup on offense.  The key to the great Pittsburgh Steelers is their success in the draft and their willingness on the field.  Don't be delayed, turn on your television, and watch today!  Look, your team is getting crushed, by the Steelers!  As an add in bonus, if you turn your television on to watch the Steelers, you can watch them win the Super Bowl!  Unbelievable!"
