Here We Go
Kickoff is finally here. Well, almost. Two weeks is too goddam long. Too much hype. Too much full-court media nonsense. I don't know if the media buildup is more annoying if your team is in the game or if they're not. Can't stand it any more.
I wrote a long, impassioned post about what the Steelers mean to Pittsburgh and what a win today would mean to our city, but Blogger was down for maintenence and in re-reading it, it was a bit mawkish. So rather than post it I'm simply going to ask that everyone out there who plans on watching the game and really doesn't care who wins to switch your allegience to the Steelers, and to send all your positive waves to the guys wearing the white shirts and the black hats. We thank you for your support.
UPDATE: I just got a call from my buddy Mark as he was walking into Ford Field. He was drunk and pumped and in very fine voice. By his estimate Steeler fans outnumber Seahawk fans by about 50-1. I believe that Seahawk fans are very supportive and devoted and deserve the 12th Man accolade the team bestowed on them. But they must be prepared to be ground into dust under the heels of the vast Steeler Nation.
Heading to a party in about an hour. My lucky bean/nacho dip is chilling in the fridge. The Yuengling is in the garage and is at the perfect temperature. I'm pumped. I'm psyched. I wanna hit someone. Someone small. HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!!!!
