A friend told me to watch the Steelers as the national anthem is performed. At the Nov. 10 game, which I attended, veterans were honored. I looked at the Buffalo sideline. The entire team and staff were lined up along the sideline. The Steelers were standing, some along the sideline, some in small groups, some walking around.
My attention was especially attracted to one staff member walking around who did not even remove his hat. I know he was on the staff because he was wearing a khaki Steelers hoodie, like the ones the entire league had for Veterans Day. He was wearing a black-and-gold knitted cap.
I was shocked at the difference between the two teams during our national anthem.
