Was wondering what you guys received as Christmas gifts.

I got an old time leather Steelers helmet, a Big Ben book, Steelers Super Bowl XL DVD, some Xbox 360 stuff (Controller, Assassins Creed, Xbox Live one year subscription) and a lot of candy for some reason...

Anyone else get anything exciting or Steelers related? :tt02:

:sofunny:....... at first I thought.......wow! That's quite a haul!! Sorry you had to wake up!

Check out some of the internet sites for Steelers merchandise and sign up for the e-mail notices. You'll get notified of any offseason sales and you can pick up one of those jerseys at a steal. I like footaction.com. Right after the season last year, we got like $283 worth of stuff for about $85.

Aren't you lucky? The Cheapest I can ever get Steelers Jerseys for unless a sale is going on is about $75.

Right after Thanksgiving last year, I got a Premier Polamalu jersey 40% off for $69! (Reebok.com)

Then on the footaction site, I got the ladies cut Ben jersey for $18! (it was on sale plus an extra 40% off)

I haven't seen any thing that good yet this year.....I'm hoping after the season is over, I can get a Holmes jersey at a good price. I really want a James Harrison Premier jersey, but I can only find the cheaper one so far. I expect since he's going to the ProBowl, they'll expand his line for next season.

My kids gave me gift cards, bath and body work stuff (they know what I like) and lots of cute stocking stuffers, others gave me cash, clothes (no Browns stuff this year *sniff*). My wonderful BF gave me a diamond bracelet and matching earrings (to go with the diamond necklace from last year).

All in all, it was a very relaxing and happy Christmas.

I'm glad to hear everyone else had a good one as well.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Got a sweet throwback hat, neon Steelers helmet, and an awesome huge Steelers blanket.

Also a couple of Z06 hats, driving gloves, a couple of bottles of Tequila (one Cazadores Anejo, and one Don Julio Anejo) and a Magnum of Champagne. I'm eally difficult to buy for because I usually buy everything I want for myself, and get into trouble. This years Christmas present to myself is what I bought earlier this year. (My wife makes damn sure to let me know it too)

Tony you bust me up! Yella stripes on a Z06? Classic!

I've been looking for a way to Steelerize her, but have yet to come up with something. But you know why I bought a Black one!

She's got 563 HP at the crank (that's 490 rwhp) with just a Vararam intake & tune! I wear one of my Steelers hats when I drive her hard. (the only way) Her top speed is right around 200 mph, but 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds. I'd rather drive through the twisties at a high rate of speed, that's where the fun is at. Had a nice run with a Ferarri F430, and had two car lengths by 135 mph. Pure adrenaline!

Sorry for hijacking the thread!
