GREENSBURG (KDKA) — Rick and Kristi Steele live deep in the heart of Steelers country, but they are devoted cheeseheads.
Their home in Greensburg is filled with Green Bay memorabilia and both their kids, including 5-year-old Brett (named after Brett Favre), are Packer fans.
Kristi and Rick both grew up here, but Kristi says, “I’ve always like the Green Bay Packers as a little girl.”
Rick says once they were married, he was converted from a Steelers fan into a Packers fan after a trip to Lambeau Field.
As for their home, “I guess it’s our shrine, to some people it would be considered a museum,” Rick says. They have everything from autographed footballs and jerseys to old turnstiles.
Although both say they’re enduring some teasing lately for their Green Bay allegiance, Kristi says, “There’s nothing like being a cheesehead!”
