Body
WHEREAS, The Steeler Nation is mighty and vast, covering the globe in black and gold in support of the world's greatest football team; and,
 
WHEREAS, The Steeler Nation gathers together across the country at welcoming establishments each and every Sunday to cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers and share their common kinship, no matter where they may be; and,
WHEREAS, Giovanni Poggi's La Botticella, located just off of Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy has long provided for the needs of the Steeler Nation with libations that maintain the traditions of Pittsburgh hospitality in a venue decorated with Myron Cope's mighty, mysterious and all powerful TERRIBLE TOWEL, or "Asciugamano Terribile," and Steeler and Pittsburgh memorabilia to celebrate Steeler victories; and,
 
WHEREAS, Giovanni Poggi is truly worthy of recognition for his efforts to cheer on the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers in the great City of Rome and to provide a home away from home for Pittsburghers who find themselves far from Heinz Field.
