PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Merry Christmas Steeler Nation!
Steelers training camp in December?
That's what Sarah Swenson thinks about when she attends camp in the summer!
"I picked a photo from each training camp visit I've made and had an ornament made. I have 2 on my tree now and just need to have 1 made from this year's trip. Thought you might enjoy my festive tree." -- Sarah

Book - The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan
Written By: Bruce A. Tollner, Rep 1 Sports Foreword by: Stephen R. Covey, #1 Bestselling Author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People"
Ben on the book: "As a quarterback, I have played on some championship teams—and I have experienced some painful losses. Regardless of the outcome of any one game, my dad has been there to cheer me on. Whether I throw a winning touchdown pass or an interception, I know my dad is there to say, 'Good job, Son, I am proud of you!' My parents have had a major influence on the way I live life, as well as the way I play football. Because of their influence, and that of my coaches and others, I am blessed to be able to live out a childhood dream to play professional football. The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan can help you to help your child live out their childhood dreams. Read this book, and put together a winning game plan for your child."—Ben Roethlisberger, two-time Super Bowl Champion Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers
