How do you celebrate winning the Super Bowl? If you're a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, you fire up great cigars, right in the locker room. Linebacker James Farrior, nose tackle Casey Hampton and linebacker Larry Foote puffed away with pride Sunday night in Tampa, Florida, celebrating their thrilling 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
Celebratory cigars are a Steelers' tradition-the franchise has won a record six Lombardi trophies, and founding owner Art Rooney was rarely seen without a cigar clamped in his jaws. Cigar Aficionado profiled two of his greatest players, each of whom inherited his love of cigars.
