Funny article from SportsPickle.com:
Fan Rushed to the Hospital After Bleeding Team Colors
A lifelong, diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan was rushed to a city hospital this afternoon after bleeding black and gold out of a superficial wound received in a minor car accident.

“Woooo! Woooo! I f—king told you! I f—king told everyone,” the man, whose identity has been concealed, yelled at the sight of his blood. “Black and gold, baby! Black and gold! Steelers for life! Here we go, Steelers, here we go! Woooo!”

While the fan was in no way alarmed by the black and gold spilling out of his veins – in fact, he claims he would have been surprised if red or any other colors came out – the doctor assigned to the patient admits his concern.

“I have never seen anything like this in 30 years in medicine,” said Dr. Peter Radzovich. “Granted, I am new to the area. Some of the nurses have told me that people regularly bleed black and gold around here. But if I trusted nurses on everything, we would have a lot of dead people. They think everyone just needs an IV, some ibuprofen and a few hours of 1970s Steelers highlight tapes.”

Dr. Radzovich says he is developing a working theory on the man’s condition, but one that in no way lessens his concern.

“I think the gold might be pus from an infection. And the black is likely bile,” he said. “But that’s not a good thing, of course. How have such quantities of pus and bile seeped into his veins? It worries me. Furthermore, I don’t understand why the liquids aren’t mixing together to form a single, brownish liquid. He is bleeding a distinct black and a distinct gold, side by side.”

Despite the peculiar condition, Dr. Radzovich says his client remains in good spirits.

“Oh, yeah. He’s happy as can be,” said the doctor. “I just wish his friends would stop waving their Terrible Towels when they visit him in his hospital room. For some reason, that quickens his pulse and increases the amount of black and gold coursing through his veins.”
