“It was my first time in Mexico, I liked seeing how big the Steelers fan base is in another country, it was great. In Mexico they told me not to go through the streets, but I wanted to mingle with the people and meet them all, I walked with everyone, there were a lot of people, we went to the top of the Monument to the Revolution. I walked through the square and everywhere there were people, the fans are relaxed and cool, they like the Steelers and they are great fans”, he declared about the Mexican fans.
Harris also made statements that will undoubtedly move all Steelers fans in the country, as he assured that with the regular season of the NFLextended to 17 games, it is much more likely to see the team from pittsburgh playing an official duel at the Azteca Stadium:
“I was talking to people from Steelersasking if we have games there (in the Aztec stadium) and said that with the 17 regular season games it will be easier to play a game outside the country, in Mexico. All the fans asked me to play here. I don’t know how or when, but surely the Steelers are planning it”, he commented.
