Just because you live in Dallas doesn't mean you live in Texas. It may also shock you that there is a Steelerless Pittsburg out there. I have noticed there are some areas, towns, and cities here (Texas) that have the same namse as places back in Pennsylvania. I have made a list of all the places that share the same name. Some of these may surprise you as they did me.  (Some spellings differ)
