Most of you know that I have a superstitious streak a mile long....Every game brings the same routine. Play (and beat) the opposing team on Madden....have the wife buy the fixings for sub sandwiches ....grab the terrible towels...and put on my Steelers jersey. BUT...I purchased a new Jack Lambert throwback jersey and have worn it two times...During the Arizona game and the Bronco game. My old standby Jerome Bettis jersey on the other hand is now 5-0.... So in true democratic fashion, I leave it to the Steelers Nation. Do I flaunt disdain at superstition and wear the Lambert jesey or do I not tempt fate and stick with Bettis?

I will wear whatever Jersey the Forum decides.

So far everyone who has responded with a post has said Bettis...yet Lambert has three votes...You dont think they are Ravens fans trying to curse me ..do you?

Am I the only one wearing the penultimate number? 35, in honor of Myron.
The man created the Terrible Towel.
I normally switch every year, but I'm sticking with this.
The day I ask others for advice on which number I wear is the day I lose my man card.
P.S. I only drink Rolling Rock from my '79 Burger Chef Steelers glass or else the Stillers lose.
O.K. never mind, I'll shut up now.
Anyone else have any unique superstions?
Which way does your "towel" face?, etc.

I vote for the Bettis Jersey. Seems to have been lucky! But now, if you wear it and the unthinkable happens tonight, it may lose its lustre...

WOW tough choice. I still say Bettis!

I will be sportin Polamalu!

I say you wear a Steelers shirt instead. Threads like these might piss off the Football Gods

I thought I was the only superstitious Steelers fan. I will be watching the game online. Both times I watched it on T.V. they lost.

Go with Bettis for now, but if we have a good lead in the division, give the Lambert one another chance later this year.

People, I already covered this when I wore my Jersey to work on Friday for jeans day. So I took care of that curse. Tonight's game is in the bank.

Well it is, but not for that reason. It is in the bank because the Superior Team is in Black and throw back Gold.

I'm not the superstitious one, but with the unfavorable weather conditions tonight we could use a guy like Jerome Bettis...

When I have a kid, I do not care who my kid roots for as long as it isn't the Ravens, Bengals, Raiders, or Patriots. If my kid adopts any of those teams, I will disown the lil sh*t!

And LLT, go with the Bettis jersey.

I voted for the Bus' jersey, but I loved
Lambert and his free will to play the best LBer
in the NFL history and I think that he has
left his niche in Steelers History
Amen?

The Steeler Nation is all wise!!!!

Wore the Bettis jersey and the results were obvious!!!!!! I gotta get ahold of that shaman to sprinkle holy water on the lambert jersey while doing the hokey-pokey.
