Back in college I decided to teach myself how to create a website, initially to fulfill a job requirement. From there I decided to take it a step farther
and do a site on a subject that I love--football. More particularly, the Super Bowl. At the time, there wasn't a single site that combined the kind of detailed
information I sought to provide. I started including more and more information, updated the appearance of the site, went from free hosting to paying for it
on my own, and here we are.
Since the start of this site, the Internet has exploded in many ways. There are many sites that have the information presented here, but I still think I
do it better than most. Much information is displayed in a clear and concise format, free of advertisements and junk. And the information on championship rings
is hard to find elsewhere. Not only the Super Bowl rings, but the conference championship rings as well as some pre-Super Bowl ones.
So look around, and visit the sitemap to get a clear view of what I exactly have online. Also, take a look below and see if you could possibly contribute
any of the information I have requested. I'll be willing to give you credit, for whatever that's worth! ;) Any information or comments can be sent to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and as always, go Steelers!
