This was sent to me at work by another Steelers co-worker

'Twas the night before Tampa , when all through the town,
Steelers' fans were ready for the Cardinals to go down;
The flags and banners were all hung with care,
All Over Tampa, and the Steelers were there;

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Super Bowl danced in their heads;
With Tomlin in charge, I had a night cap,
And settled down for one more night's nap;

When down at Tampa there arose such a clatter,
Cardinals fans wondered just what was the matter;
For at the stadium there was a great flash,
Someone had entered with no ticket, not any cash;

The moon on the breast of the grass and the sand,
Gave the luster of mid-day to the man with a towel in his hand;
When what to their wondering eyes should appear,
Who this man was, it became quite clear;

The smoke from his cigar made the air gloomy,
But they knew in a moment that it was Art Rooney;
He held the team roster, the plan of attack,
Big Ben to Hines Ward or Fast Willie in the back;

He saw in the defense a curtain of steel,
If they can't sack Warner then nobody will;
Troy will cover the field, he'll be everywhere,
I'm telling you Cardinals, you better beware;

His long locks of hair will flow in the breeze,
He'll catch Curt's passes with the greatest of ease;
Mr. Rooney walked the sideline; he paced to and fro,
He wore white and gold from his head to his toe;

A terrible towel he held oh so tight,
As he looked to the heavens on that warm Tampa night;
Then the words that he spoke left all feeling quite numb,
Lord get us Home to Pittsburgh and one for my other thumb.

Just got this one emailed to me which is kind of simular but with Myron in it:


Twas the Night Before the Super Bowl

‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl, when along the gulf shore,
Steelers fans were praying for “just one more;”

The players were nestled all snug in the sack,
With visions of the first NFL Six-Pack;

Coach Tomlin was young, but wise for his years,
So I drifted off to sleep without any fears;

When at the stadium there arose some strange chatter,
The Cardinals feared, what was the matter;

We heard “Okel Dokel”, we heard “Double Yoi,”
We jumped from our beds, our hearts jumped for joy;

He stood at the fifty with a grin ear to ear,
Steelers fans everywhere started to cheer;

Then in an instant to our surprise,
This little old man had tears in his eyes;

He went to the booth and there took his chair,
While Terrible Towels waved high in the air;

Then over the airwaves came his shrill voice,
The Steelers Nation began to rejoice;

He said, “I am back, but you know I can’t stay,
I just had to see my Steelers play;

From my home up above, I have a great view,
But I wanted to celebrate down here with you;

So bring on the Birds, we’ll send them a flyin’,
On the way back to Phoenix, they will be cryin’;

Ben, Hines, Troy, Jeff and all of the rest,
No matter the outcome, to me you’re the best;”

The airwaves went silent, the stadium still,
Was this just a dream, it seemed so real;

In our team we have faith, in our team we have hope,
But the game’s not the same without Myron Cope;
