PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A couple of Steelers fanatics got married right in the middle of a tailgate outside Acrisure Stadium.
KDKA-TV's John Shumway talked with the bride and groom on Monday before the game against the Browns.
He grew up in Johnstown, a Steelers fanatic through and through. She grew up in Norfolk, Virginia, but has embraced Steelers fanaticism.
Paula Spruel is a preschool teacher, while Kevin Eash has a highly technical job in the oil and gas industry.
Their alter egos, however, when it comes to the black and gold, are "Steeler Princess" and "Steeler Warrior."
Of course, you've seen "Yinzer Pope," "Steelers Jesus," and many other characters, so it might not surprise you to hear that Eash reached out to "Yinzer Pope" to do the wedding, while "Steelers Jesus" walked Spruel down the aisle.
Eash has been to Pittsburgh for games and enjoys the reactions he gets driving his Steelers-wrapped truck around Houston.
Spruel's outfit for the wedding was a labor of love by Eash after he proposed this past New Year's Eve and realized she didn't have the right outfit for the special nuptials.
When they first met years ago in Norfolk, he was in the Navy. They both were in their first marriages. Spruel was the Christian education leader in their church, so she sees it as being a little interesting that she's being given away by "Steelers Jesus."
All of the planning for the big day was left up to Steelers fanatics.
The couple flew into Pittsburgh on Saturday and met with them at Tequila Cowboy to get the plan.
