They have the record for having won the most Super Bowls in the history of the NFL. The Penguins also have had recent success winning the Stanley Cup.I found some more information here.
One of the most prominent players in Steelers history is Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw. Bradshaw was the quarterback at the helm for the Steelers first 4 Super Bowl championships. He won the Most Valuable Player award in each of those Super Bowls. The Steelers were also known for their impenetrable team defense during that period.
The Penguins have had their fair share of superstars as well. When they were a dominant team in the early 90′s Mario Lemieux was the best player in all of professional hockey. Today Sidney Crosby is the player that led the team to championship glory. There are no shortage of sports heroes to be found in the rich and storied history of this blue collar sports town.
