Wes Lyons makes his writing debut with 'The Pursuit with Patience.'
Whether or not Wes Lyons will play in the NFL again remains to be seen—he appeared in all four of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 2011 preseason games—but his writing career is off and running with the November publishing of his first book, "The Pursuit with Patience." Lyons, a Woodland Hills High School and West Virginia University alum, started writing the book after he was released by the Steelers in 2011. (He ended up back with the team in 2012 but is no longer with them.) The goal of the book, as Lyons says on his website, "is to inspire at least one person." He continues, "That would make all the hard work and time that I have dedicated to writing 'The Pursuit with Patience' worth it in the end." Wesley A. Lyons Jr. was raised in North …

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"-inspired versions of some of your favorite Pittsburgh Steelers from Patch communities, including Brett Keisel (Cranberry area) and Troy Polamalu (Pine). The video stars Homestead's 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. Players say they enjoy celebrating the team's …
