phila bars with pittsburgh fanbase

there has to be a local bar owned by a pittsburgh transplant in philadelphia. a haven for stillers fans amongst all the iggles loyalists...a good place to watch football or baseball and have decent drinks and food. does such a place exist here in phila? and if it does could someone tell me where and what it is? thanks in advance for all your help.
the "regular" bartender at Sassafras on 2nd street is from Pittsburgh - and he is very good friends with another bartender next door at Brownies, also from Pittsburgh. Sometimes when Brownies is feeling frisky, they have corndogs on the menu (from a box, but hey, who am I to complain?). Oh yes - and I am just about certain that they serve DiNics roast pork.....
And the Sass burgers are mighty good (buffalo and...lamb? do they have lamb burgers? I am kinda sure. oh maybe a Roethlisbuuuuuurrrrrger...sorry, couldn't help myself) Their wings are great - and their french onion soup is pretty good too. back to the burgers - I really think they do have a lamb burger - that was no joke.
You won't get a huge rowdy football crowd but for good beers, good food, and maybe a Steelers fan or two, try one of these places.
As an Eagles fan, I don't know why I am helping the enemy but...
During last year's Super Bowl season, Fox and Hound at 15th and Spruce, was a haven for Steelers fans most of the year.
If you look in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette online, somewhere in there is a list of Steeler Nation bars, all over the country. I would call to see if it is a real Steeler bar though. My cousin loves in Scottsdale AZ, and she reports that you have to have a ticket to get into the Steeler bar there for game days.
