Steelers Fans Having a Little Fun (at Ravens’ Expense)

With all the weekly reminders that the Pittsburgh Steelers have the hardest schedule in the N.F.L. this season, Steelers fans have been keeping a tight lid on their expectations. But after the team clinched the division and a first-round bye last Sunday with a win in Baltimore, a few fans permitted themselves a moment of gloating before hunkering back down for this weekend’s match-up against the Titans.

On Penn Avenue in the Strip District, where street vendors sell black-and-gold striped socks, toggle caps and team jerseys, a gift shop called Art of Steel posts a daily joke on a sandwich board out front.

The sign one day this week: “What do you call 40 guys watching the Super Bowl on television?

The Baltimore Ravens.”

I've spent the week on the ratnest board helping them get over their devastating loss.

They haven't banned me yet.

“What do you call 40 guys serving the Patriots* drinks and food watching the Super Bowl on television?

The Cleveland Browns.”

Fixed it for you.


Fixed it again.

I do believe it should be:

“What do you call 40 girls watching the Super Bowl on television?"

I was a guest on a ratbird message board yesterday and their freakin' wailing, crying, bitchin' and moanin' like a little school girl had me rolling on the floor!!!

It's amazing how them losing to the Steelers just brings them back down to earth!

They are STILL crying in their beers.

It's hilarious. Their team just gave up a 92 yd drive, and they whine about the last 6 inches.

I'm sorry but I have to correct you. Whining is what my 3 year old does when she doesn't get her way. What the ratbird fans are doing constitutes far more than what their pulling in baltimoronville!
