Steelers Rule

I have been doing a little happy dance since last night. Why you ask, well because my favorite NFL football team in the world is the Pittsburgh Steelers. And last night the Steelers won the AFC Championship and are now going to be playing in the Superbowl vs. the Green Bay Packers. So I am on fucking cloud nine right now.

You see I am originally from Pittsburgh and have been a Steelers fan since before I was born. And now my team is playing to get a record SEVENTH Superbowl title. They are 6-1 in Superbowl games. And now with this upcoming Superbowl they have been to the Superbowl 3 times in the last 6 years. Even if you hate them, you have to respect their talent as they have been very relevant for a long time.

And the ironic thing is that I predicted before the season that the Steelers would go 12-4 in regular season and they did. At the beginning of the playoffs I predicted that it would be the Steelers and the Packers in the Superbowl. What is even more ironic is that they will be playing the Superbowl in the stadium of the Dallas Cowboys, the only team to ever beat the Steelers in a Superbowl. All of my friends are Cowboys fans so it is burning their insides to have the Steelers playing in THEIR stadium at the Superbowl.

Here is a little picture of me that I took last Friday. I am holding up one finger for each championship that the Steelers have.


Yes I know I colored out my face, but since I am in the FBI witness protection program due to a couple of bloggers wanting to “bump” me off, well I had protect my identity. I am kidding they don’t want to bump me off, but I am sure they are cheering for the Packers to win.

As for these bloggers they are Bruce and his twin Evil Bruce who made a little bet with me (as he is a Jets fans) and the loser had to post a nice post about the others team. I am looking forward to his post about the Steelers. But really his blogs are fucking hilarious and you should go check them out. He even writes about his awesome black lab puppy that he has. Good stuff I tell you.

The other blogger who is mad at me right now is Mrs. Hyde over at A Bitch Called Mom. You see she lives in Baltimore and is a huge Ravens fan. So needless to say she was a TAD bit pissed off when my Steelers beat down her team a week ago. But don’t let her anger and angst for me and the Steelers stop you from reading her blog, she is hilarious and her blog is excellent.

And here is a bonus blog for you to check out. His name is Bluzdude and you should check out his blog Darwinfish. He is also a fellow Steelers fan and he writes about living in the Devils back yard (ie Baltimore – because he is in Ravens country) and other stuff. So you should check out his blog as it is good stuff.

And since it is Superbowl time around here, next week all of my posts will be Superbowl related. I cannot wait for Sunday February 6th to get here.

  1. Yikes on the picture and congrats on your team. Since you are on a wee roll of predictions could you kindly forward 6 numbers for me to play this weeks Powerball. If the lucky #'s are a winner then I will gladly buy you a ticket to the game and a meet and greet with Big Ben.

  4. I'm picking the Steelers over the Packers too, because it fits in with my betting system. Guys tell me my system is ridiculous and laugh that it's all 'girly', but I have a better win average in the pool than a lot of the hecklers.

  5. Congrats on your Steelers winning. I will be rooting for them in the Superbowl, sticking w/ a PA team!

  6. I must need more coffee...I sear I thought that said ther were bloggers that wanted to hump you off so you had to protect your identity.

    Wow

    I'll be sad to see the end of football season. Makes the rest of winter drag by...and no...that wasn't sarcasm.

  7. not much of a football fan but congrats to your team

  8. Thanks for the plug!

    And now more good news: I won't have to schedule a cardiac stress test this year. Last night should qualify. So I should be able to use my health care spending account to cover this month's cable bill, right?

  9. Couldn't really give a toss about pro-football (as previously mentioned, I'm a college ball girl) (that sounded wrong, didn't it?), but I did actually predict that the Packers would get to the Superbowl this year, so I'm fairly chuffed at the lineup.

    Best luck to your Steelers, though I must say that Rodgers (who looks alarmingly like Jake Gyllenhaal) is much more aesthetically scrumptious than Roethlisberger (who looks a little like a serial killer) and really - I only watch for the men meat anyhow.

    Please tell me you're not surprised.

  10. Hockey... I don't understand unless you're talking about hockey.

    I only watch the superbowl for the commercials. Forgive me I'm Canadian.

  11. Maybe next year, Texans, maybe next year...

  12. The Texans better make the playoffs next year at least.

  13. @ Sausage, thank you. And if it were only that easy to do, I would have done it a long time ago.

    @ Copyboy, I am sorry you have to suffer through the friends.

    @ Bruce, I am looking forward to it.

    @ Venom, thank you. And girls are just as good as guys for picking winners and losers. I mean I am still single so some women are picking good right? lol

    @ Birdshit, thank you.

    @ Daffy, I did say that, but I was kidding. No one wants to bump me off. And I agree about football ending making winter last longer.

    @ Becca, thank you.

    @ Bluzdude, you are welcome. And I agree you should be able to pay your cable bill from your health care spending account.

    @ Barreness, I am shocked by what you have said. I have heard tons of women say that.

    @ Hero, it is ok. I don't mind. I like hockey as well. Maybe the Pens can win another Cup this year.

    @ Jarhead, I would like to see them make the playoffs, but I doubt that they will.

    @ Watchman, It would be nice, but unlikely.

  14. I have as much to say about football as you do about my nerdy music preferences. The picture is VERY funny, though. You, um, look quite handsome, Mr. O.

  15. I'm glad you posted this. I haven't watched any football *ducks at objects thrown in her direction*, but like to know who'll play in the Superbowl. It's been a rare 72 degrees in Nor Cal, so I've been outside.

    I'll root for the Steelers just because they're your fav.

  16. Congratulations!!!! Not a sports fan but can understand the excitement felt by fans when their beloved team won. I was all gearing up to have Super Bowl fever and to watch the game for once NOT for the commercials, alas Da Bears lost. (Oh they kind of sucked. Doink.) Anyway, congrats and YEAH Super Bowl!

  20. @ Robyn, thank you. I am trying to give Jack a run for his money.

    @ Kernut, I don't throw things are people who don't watch football. Just like I don't want people throwing things at me for stuff that doesn't interest me. And thank you.

    @ Absence, thank you very much.

    @ Bruce, thank you. Sorry your team lost. They will be back next year.

    @ Kelley, thank you.

    @ Heather, thank you. We need all the help we can get now.

  23. @ S, we will need the luck. Hey I think we beat you the last time you went to a Superbowl. lol

    @ Bruce, oh I know it is all in good fun. And I came up with that nice little pose with six fingers for the Cowboys fans in my office to remind them that we have ONE more title than they do.

  24. I'm from near philly. I was hoping for an Eagles/Pittsburgh final, but I'll take what I can get. Go Steelers.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ Bothered, I would love to see a Pitt vs Philly Superbowl. I have been saying that for a few years now.

    @ Vault, thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Whew!! Thank goodness you said that you whited your face out. I thought you were in desperate need of a tanning booth.
    As far as the Steelers, I'm a Giants (so I got my own problems). But, I absolutely loved seeing that fat pantload, Rex Ryan, whip his headset off in disgust when he knew the party was over. Priceless.
    I live near Philly, so I'm also loving all the angst here over the Birds never having won the Big Dance (despite the fact they ripped my heart out when they last played the G-Men).
    Steelers over the Pack.

  27. I suppose I can be happy for the Steelers since they are from PA (even if it is the crap side of my awesome state). I am Switzerland when it comes to football...don't really care who wins...but it's always fun to watch how amped up people get.

    Love the post...and the picture. Go STEELERS!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm going to let you in on a little secret...I don't hate the Steelers as much as I let on. Don't tell my hubby. If I meet that Troy Polamalu on the street...let's just say you won't see his ass for awhile.

    Oh, and tell that Bluzdude I'm coming for his traitor ASS!

  29. @ Al, I feel sorry for you having to deal with the Philly fans. They are worse than Packers fans.

    @ Jewels, just accept it, Latrobe is the best part of the state.

    @ Sharaf, ty.

    @ Hyde, Ah ok. Well I am glad you don't them that much. I hope you like how I pimped you out before you gave me that award. And I won't tell your hubbs. And you should read his blog, it is funny how he deals with the ratbird fans.

  31. @ Brans, yes YAY!!!!

    @ Kage, it is ok everyone gets busy.

    Yes Steelers I say. The town used to be made of all steel but now it is made more of composite materials as people are trying to be more "green" friendly. And thank you.
