Opinion from a life-long Steeler fan:

All the talk (hype) about a sixth Super Bowl victory, other wise known as the "Six Pack," is beginning to sound premature. Why not just make a rap video and complete the cycle.

And personally, I think it is a stupid name. I am surprised it is not followed by a "git er done" in all caps.

If Pittsburgh wins... then people can come up with some cute sounding cliché (and hopefully a better one). But until Sunday night, anything referring to a SB win feels a lot like those "19-0" shirts sent to Nicaragua.

I am sure crazy fans drunk on SB media hype disagree. Sorry friends, sober up until Pittsburgh gets number 6.

Go Steelers!

Opinion from a life long Steelers fan:

Its absolutely positively no different from all the "one for the thumb" hype.

Be grateful it didn't really start until we got into the playoffs... I think 1 for the thumb in 81 started early in the season.

At least they weren't arrogant enough to trademark it.

Go Steelers!

I think you're confusing the fananticism of the Steeler Nation with the NFL Pittsburgh Steelers football team.

Don't question the resolve of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have met every challenge in the post-season. They are strong, focused and have done nothing to indicate that they will treat this game with disregard.

How can you blame the fans for being excited that their team is in the SuperBowl? Fans that have had reason to celebrate 5 Superbowl Championships? Of course we expect to win #6; winning is in our blood!

Here we go Steelers, here we go! :tt02:

Agreed on both accounts. "Sixburgh" is much better than "Six Pack" and neither should be used before next Monday.

I agree, I think the phrase is as cheap as a half dozen cans of Old-Milwaukee.

It wasn't a comment on intellect - it was an anatomical reference. :sofunny:

But of course, I kid.

The fans do not influence the game at all. We all have our superstitions, but in the end, we don't do anything to affect the game.

Get over yourself, we can be excited. If we listened to you, we would have to get rid of all of the theme songs, delete all the youtube videos, cancel the rally, and remove NFL network from our cable.

GO STEELERS, I WANT THE SIX-PACK! BRING THE SIXPACK TO SIXBURGH!


WHOOOOOOOOOO!

Unbelievable there is a t-shirt. That's exactly what I was picturing (except I also imagined some slight webbing between the digits).:chuckle:

Well, we're not being nearly as annoying and arrogant about it as the Patriots. Plus we don't cheat and we don't have a gay quarterback. So I think we'll be OK.

Let me get this straight.

Fans are NOT supposed to want thier team to win the next game they play in? By winning thier next game the Steelers will be champs and the franchise will have 6 trophys and the ONLY team to do so. Whats not to cheer for? Outside of home field advantage the fans have NO bearing on the game. We can't "jinx" the team and to suggest that we can is retarded!

Check the sig psuedo fans!

Iron City is the one that is amrketing the "Road to the Six Pack," that's where I got my sig. Thought it was funny. If the Steelers win on Sunday, I'm perfectly happy with first to six or recordbreakers as the theme.

We've had three year to figure this out and I haven't heard anything better. I think "6 pack" is appropriate for the city of Pittsburgh! I don't drink beer, yet I'll buy me a 6-pack of Iron City beer to sit on the shelf of my Steelers shrine.

1st, way to stay classy with all the WV Steeler fans:headshake:




Moving on, there might be something to it had the media talked about it more....because all I've seen is how great a story Kurt Warner is and maybe the Steelers #1 D can "slow" down Larry if they have a good day.:coffee:

Look, if you want to go for the cheap and easy joke, "One for the thumb" as a 6th ring should be a 3 Mile Island reference.
