Last night I was leaving the bar where the local Steeler Club meets to watch the game... as you can imagine I was rather p*ssed off. So I am heading to my car and some idiot wearing a Tony Gonzales jersey sees I am wearing my #36 Bettis jersey and makes the following snarky comment: "You know Jerome Bettis doesn't play anymore."

Well after a Steeler loss is the WRONG time to mouth off to me, so I responded "Bite me!" In retrospect, I realize I could have been the bigger person and just let it pass, but like I said, I was p*ssed. :pissed: I know as Steeler fans we pride ourselves on being respectful to fans of opposing teams (with a few possible exceptions) so I know I broke a cardinal rule.

I am quite contrite now and ask for absolution. Thank you. :chuckle:

Yeah I wouldn't worry about that. That is a fairly ignorant statement that idiot made. He asked for that one. :thumbsup:

I think you were fine in your response.

While being well within reasonable limits for a response, a better comeback might have been....."sorry, next time I'll wear my Heath Miller jersey. He's a TE still playing that DOES have a Super Bowl Ring..did you know that?"

But the correct answer to someone wearing a Gonzales jersey...is ....."Bettis retired a Super Bowl champion. How are those Chiefs doing?"

You should have told him that the Chiefs haven't played for several seasons. :laughing: With a 1-6 KC record, I don't think this schmo really has anything to thump his chest about.

Well it seems I made a mistake. Gonzales' jersey # is #88.

I just looked up the jersey (based on what I remember) and it seems he was wearing a 49ers throwback jersey (#87 was Dwight Clark).

I don't think that would help his defense any...you'd both be wearing "throwbacks".:chuckle:

No Worries. Going back to some of the 20/20 hindsite comments, I like the "neither do the chiefs" response.

"Memphis"?

You going to need me to come protect you at the Titans game? You got a couch?

Okay, so he's talking trash about your jersey while he's wearing the jersey of a retired player himself? The guy is a goon, and deserved the response.

Bite me was a fine choice, although,
"Well, neither does your enitre team" would have been pretty good too. :laughing:

That's the plan anyway. A fellow Steeler fan from another forum said he could hook me up with a ticket.

I would have never said that to anyone. I'm more of a " kiss my ass " sort of guy.

No need to ask for forgiveness for that.

You can wear your Bettis jersey whenever you want, even 10 years from now.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You should have given him a *finger* to go with the "Bite me!" ;)

You need 2 see Preacher 4 this kind of stuff. :wink02: (whispering) But I still think "Bite me" was nice choice. I would've said "I don't know who the hell is Gonzales", which would've been true. :chuckle:

I living in the city Oakland has thier spring training in.

My best response...

"Blah blah blah blah..." to which I respond, "Yeah, well, the immaculate reception WAS legal."

Usually sets them off every time. If they say "what?" I chalk it up to a bandwagon fan and walk off.

Bite me? Sure, it works, but "Yep, the same hour we won our 5th Superbowl" would have worked too!!
