PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – From chicken wings and fries to Big Ben t-shirts and black and yellow cookies, the Pittsburghers spent Friday shopping for essentials for the negative. for the Sunday game.
“I love him for the business, I really want Ben to stay,” said Jim Coen, owner of Yinzers in Burgh.
Big Ben is meant to be big business and now he’s ready for another trip to the knockouts.
It’s Friday, the Steelers are in the playoffs, most people are off work on Monday, so who cares we might get some snow? The action won’t happen here on Sunday, but the Pittsburghers plan to party.
New merchandise at Yinzers in the Strip is flying off the shelves. The owner says he owes his clothing store’s success to Ben becoming QB.
Executives at flagship store DeLuca’s Diner in the Strip anticipate discomfort while waiting for home fries.
“They always come back in the fourth round, like they did that Baltimore game. They came back in the fourth quarter. They always start out slow and then they slowly, gradually – it’s like a nail biter. They have you on the edge of your chair,” said Steelers fan Donna Smith.
At the Oakmont Bakery, people are lining up for a big bite of a Roethlisburger, a yellow doughnut with a chocolate cake in the middle and Oreo crumbs. There is also Ginger Bens gingerbread.
The Steelers will join the Chiefs Sunday.
