It’s an exciting time for young Tampa resident Ian Chapkis. Not only is his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the Super Bowl, but he turned 13 just in time for the big game. And, since Ian is Jewish, we all know what that means — Steelers Bar Mitzvah 2009!
Chapkis picked up Steelers fandom from his father, who is from Pittsburgh. The family says it had been planning the theme long before the team ended up making Super Bowl. Should the favored Steelers lose to the Cardinals on Sunday, Ian is required for the first time in his life to take it like a man.
