Sports Outside the Beltway

Steelers en Espanol?

Is this the first officially promoted team website in Spanish?

The Steelers aren’t the only team to have a Spanish website – Dallas, for example, has a Spanish version of their news site. However, they are showing it prominently on their front page, which no other team seems to be doing right now. Western Pennsylvania does not have many Spanish speaking people, so this request must be coming from fans elsewhere. Dallas may be America’s Team (couldn’t help that one, James!), but the Steelers are making a move to become the World’s Team. I do expect to see more of this as the NFL’s influence continues to creep south of the Mexican border.
