How anyone can leave out the the Steelers' and Patriots' game and mention the New Orleans Aints and Dallas Lil Boys is beyond me. Only jealousy and Sainst/Cowboys blindness and favortism can account for such a lapse or dereliction. Since the author hates the Steelers he will have a rough rest of the pro football season and will hate the Super Bowl matchup again. Maybe the Steelers will get some JFP love or at least a mention this year as the 2012 Super Bowl Champion. Needless to say, but I will anyway, the Eagles soared over the cowboys, the Rams rammed on the saints, and the Steelers looks like they're well on their way to a third trip to the Super Bowl in 3 years and a 9th overall. The Steelers finally are fairly healthy or so it seems since our backups players played as well or better than the injured starters. This is the first time we've played the Patriots in years when Coach Billsandblankchecks wasn't cheating on us in some way. His gigs is up with us and he knows it. I won't even mention the fact that Big Ben is now getting his motivation from home and thereby alleviating any chance for garden tools (hoes that is) making false allegations he tried to rape them. Again the Steeler nation don't have to take any. This Sunday the Baltimore Cravens are going to have to pay up too for the not-quite-ready-whipping they put on us in week one. Yes I called them the Cravens. They hate us because they can't be us. Jealousy and hatred is a powerful combination. It won't be enought Sunday though. I'm as happy as a lark. To all my fellow members of the Steeler nation, y'all stay up. It looks like we might be seeing the Packers again in February. They won't be packing enough luck this time. And so it is. We out. How you do dat der. Queen, you have my greatest empathy, and you're always welcome to join the Steeler nation at any time. Haters (Saints and Cowboys fan) hate on! Don't hate us because we're beautiful. Beauty is a gift from the Lord.


There is nothing more difficult to watch than a Happy Steeler! This is proof in the pudding! lol!!!!
