Hell. Yes.

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Steelers blog, Blog 'n' Gold, a reader sent this info:
"Many B'more local bars are posting signs saying no Steelers fans allowed for the game. ... Not the most gracious of hosts....


I'm heading to Canton later today to take in the game and I can only hope this rumor is true, but I'm not totally sold. Baltimore's bars have a reputation of being all too hospitable to the opposition, especially when the Yankees and Red Sox are in town. The Baltimore Sun published an article (that I'm too lazy to look up) about this trend, and I was at one Orioles game when the Red Sox were in town last season and the CAMDEN Pub, of all places, was hosting a Boston College alumni event and was chock full of pink Boston hats and stupid VARITEK jerseys with the hockey captain's C on the front and the erroneously-displayed name on the back. But that's a topic for another day.

Here's hoping for a Steelers-fan-free evening at Lager's.
