Steelers


I am a happy person this morning after the Steelers victory yesterday at the RCA Dome against the Colts...A side note, I am glad I have TiVo because to wait and go through commericals and those inane halftime show would just drive me crazy...

The Steelers are the first team since the inception of this current wildcard system in 1990 to be a sixth seed and make the Championship game...

Championship games in the last 10 years have not been kind to the Steelers, including losses to the Patriots twice at home...the Steelers have been the Red Sox and Cubs all rolled up in one for these years...Being a Red Sox fan as well, maybe there is a glimmer of hope for the Steelers...

I try not to get too excited about the win because the idea of high expectations goes with lowest lows for a fan...

I will be tuned to my TiVo next Sunday with my 34 jersey with my surname on it, sitting in my favorite recliner, rooting for "my" Steelers and talking to the TV like a crazy man...

If the Steelers win, I will be a little happier than this week, and then repeat the same process for SuperBowl XL ...

If the Steelers lose, I will be a little more sadder than if it was this week, I will put up my 34 jersey, and take a shot of Herradura from my Steelers shot glass, a end of the year of tradition...

GO STEELERS!
