Today is one of the most important days/nights of my life.
Because it's the Super Bowl.
And because the Steelers are IN!
And because, well, I hail from the 'burgh.
Two Fisted Chris and Mermaidelicious are hosting a Pittsburgh Steeler fan 'ONLY' Super Bowl party.
So, we, are like 'there'.
Or, 'here', so to speak, since I'm sittin in front of the big screen, wearing my Jack Lambert '76 retro jersey, being totally and completely anti-social. Cuz', I usually don't do Super Bowl parties.
Why? do you ask?
Cuz, I tend to get just a teeny, tiny, little bit mouthy.
And I'm here with my bro, and we're the only people here that are Pittsburgh bred and bled, so, we're just a teeny, tiny, little bit SERIOUS about this.
This is not a game.
Oh....no.........no, no no.
You just wouldn't understand.
I lived in Pittsburgh when they won their first four Super Bowls.
I was old enough to remember, and I'm old enough to talk the talk.
To me, living in Pittsburgh when the Steelers win a Super Bowl is as equivalent of a sporting experience as it was when Billy Two Swords took me to my first NASCAR race which just happened to be the one where Senior died.
It's like you're THERE, man.
You can move from the 'burgh.
You can get mad when they lose for a couple years.
But, if you are a REAL Steeler, you will be a Steeler for life. And there ain't nothin' you can do about it.
Just like Sam Elliott just said - "from a town built on steel, where being terrible is a good thing."
Let's go #7!
Note to self - why did Terry Bradshaw wear a freaking FUCHSIA blazer while interviewing Ben Roethlisberger? Ugh. Who knows why Terry Bradshaw doth what he does.
