SCB Biographies

Welcome to the Steel City Blitz Biography Page. This is the crew that brings you the best opinions and analysis of the Pittsburgh Steelers! Please note there are probably an unlimited number of fabrications in Marc’s bio.

Marc Uhlmann, Co-Creator, Owner and Lead Writer


I’ve been a fan of the Steelers since the age of 2 when I caught a glimpse of the black and gold on a television set and was instantly enamored! My goal here at SCB is to give the reader pragmatic, honest opinions of all things “Steelers.” I believe there are many great sources of Steelers’ news out there but I’ve always felt that many aren’t willing to be critical when it’s necessary. I hope you enjoy the content and interaction here at SCB! In my life away from the blog I’m an educator of social studies at a high school in Southwest Michigan. I’m now into my third decade of educating.

I reside in Portage, Michigan with my wife, daughter and son.

Ben Anderson, SCB Contributor, Cap Specialist and All-Around Wise-Ass

Lifelong Steelers fan. Deep thinker who can often be found sitting in his study, which is ensconced in mahogany, smells of rich, Corinthian leather and is filled on all sides with numerous leather bound books on all manner of compelling, important subjects. He sits by the fireplace in his black and gold robe, smoking a pipe, contemplating life, and the Steelers, with a furrowed brow and takes his many social media posts very seriously.

A compassionate, altruistic man who… well, maybe that’s overstating it. Sometimes he goes out of his way to help…. well,…. he has occasional moments when…… ok, never mind that part.

Lover of dogs. His are cuter than yours. Just ask him.

Lives in Portland. Doesn’t like the hippies. Loves the Dave Matthews Band. Go figure.
Connoisseur of fine wines, or maybe it’s just ordinary bourbons. Yeah, one of those.

Loves a good cheesesteak. Eater of pizza and pierogies… and tacos, lots of tacos. Feels strongly that people who order vegetarian or vegan substitutions in restaurants should have their dish garnished with a dollop of congealed, whipped bacon grease for making the rest of us listen to someone asking “if the kitchen has a chicken flavored tofu substitute they can use instead.”

Recipient of free beer, as often as possible. He’ll never turn one down.

You can always send him your complaints via Twitter @benanderson58. Compliments are nice too, but he prefers gift cards.

Ian McMeans, Jack of All Trades Including Steelers, Pitt and WPIAL Content and likely more

Ian has lived in Western Pennsylvania his whole life has been going to Steelers games since Bubby Brister was throwing to Louis Lipps. I have attended all 7 AFC Championship Games in Pittsburgh during my lifetime. I started blogging about the Steelers shortly after graduating from Allegheny College. Over time I expanded my scope to cover Western PA High School Football (WPIAL) and some other things that interest me like Bracketology, the Olympics, World Cup Soccer, and Battlebots. “Salary Cap aficionado and Kevin Colbert apologist.”
When I was in high school, I would keep track of WPIAL results and standings in a Microsoft Works spreadsheet (that dates me a bit!) because the Post-Gazette’s standings were wrong. Now, I have my own WPIAL Standings Page that is the only one in existence that tracks and accounts for all the necessary tiebreakers.
I’ve been doing NCAA Tournament bracket projections for the last 7 years and have been tracking RPI data for the last decade. I’m ranked in the Top 50 Bracketologists in the nation on The Bracket Matrix and have bested ESPN’s Joe Lunardi in 4 of the last 7 years and swept CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm in 7 straight years.
I now live in the South Hills with my wife and 3 sons (who were wrapped in Terrible Towels after they were born). I have a wide array of interests spanning from sports to Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, James Bond, various other movies and TV shows, classic rock, craft beer, vexillology (the study of Flags), and a bunch of other random things. Lover of memes, GIFs and Crying Jordans. Hit me up on Twitter @thesteelersnat.

Chrissy Dummer, SCB Contributor From Behind The Scenes

I’ve been a fan of the cluster of Pittsburgh sports teams since I was just a little lady. No teams are better, in my opinion. Pittsburgh is home.  I grew up here and stayed here for college at SRU and graduate work at Duquesne University. I hang out behind the scenes of this wonderful site. I create graphics and keep our site looking beautiful. A big personality and a big smile. Follow me on instagram! @chrissow



Ryan Scarpino, SCB Contributor

Ryan, a lifelong Pittsburgher and Ohio University grad, worked for the Steelers PR Department from 2010 to 2017. He often shares anecdotes about his seven seasons with the Black and Gold, ranging from his car rides with Mr. Dan Rooney to when he had to carry 250 media guides up six levels at Wembley Stadium in London. He’s also a huge stats guy.

A lover of all sports, Ryan also enjoys home renovation projects, the outdoors and the gym. He’s a self-proclaimed classic rock guru and he claims he’d be the number-one draft pick for bar music trivia. He taught himself how to play guitar, and after hearing him, you’d know he’s telling the truth. Ryan and his wife have two dogs, and they all enjoy watching a variety of TV shows on the tube.

When it comes to the Steelers and the NFL, the bottom line is he’s tough but fair. Follow him on Twitter @scarpizio
