17. The Ingots
The Pittsburgh Steelers like to pretend they’re new age by not having cheerleaders. As of 2020, they’re one of six teams in the NFL without any. However, the fact is that they did back in the 1960s. They probably won’t like anybody reminding them about the ‘Steelerettes’ or even worse, their male equivalents, the ‘Ingots.’
After the Steelers scored a touchdown, the Ingots would fire off a blank from a cannon. In short, this wasn’t a good idea. They stopped this after Buddy Dial’s soul nearly left his body. Soon the Ingots and the hard-hat-wearing Steelerettes were no more.
