I have a tradition of raising my Steelers flag for the first game of the season. And leaving up atop the flag pole for the entire season. But today, 9/11, I will have to break that tradition. Instead I will fly my United States of America, Red, White, and Blue, Old Glory, at half staff. God Bless all that lost thier live four years ago. God Bless America.

Certainly an excellent tribute cleve, cant argue w/ that. I was kinda curious as to if the NFL would start the season on this date this year, but they did. Here's to all of our men and women in the police, firefighters, armed forces, and everywhere else where help is needed when trajedy strikes. Thank You !!!!

What kind of made me angry last night was when Ray came out of the tunnel with the Flag (which was rolled up) gave it to the Marine and then started dancing. To me it looked like he put more time and preperation into his breakdancing then saluting our country. Maybe it was just me but I think he could have saved the dance until next week. Hate that guy even though he is a great player.

Amen, I`m glad Im not the only one who saw that, and was totally annoyed. He is trash, a great player, but trash.
