Local stars Brett Keisel, Troy Polamalu and, of course, Charlie Batch search for the "true meaning of the season" in this Charlie Brown parody.
As the playoffs draw closer, Pittsburgh's favorite backup quarterback is searching for the true "meaning of the season" this Christmas—at least on YouTube. A new parody of the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas features Peanuts versions of some of your favorite Steelers from Patch communities, including Brett Keisel (Cranberry Township area) and Troy Polamalu (Pine Township). The video stars Charlie Batch, who asks a beard-petting Keisel as well as new father Ben Roethlisberger to help him find the true meaning of the Steelers season. "The playoffs season is coming up, and this whole team has stopped believing," the Batch character complains.

For the first time, the Pittsburgh Steelers will wear their horizontally striped throwback jerseys and socks in a game when they take on the Washington Redskins today at Heinz Field. What's your take on the 1934 replicas?
Killer bees? Depression chic? Those are some of the kinder phrases thrown about by some Pittsburgh Steelers fans who are less than thrilled that players will be donning throwback uniforms at 1 p.m. today when they meet the Washington Redskins at Heinz Field. Steelers officials unveiled the black-and-gold horizontally striped jerseys and socks earlier this year in honor of the team's 80th anniversary. The Steelers haven't worn this style of uniform since 1934, and the throwback garb is intended to reflect the team's Depression-era roots. Steelers’ players are looking forward to wearing the throwbacks today for the first time in a game, according to the team's official blog on its website.
