"The Terrible Towel is poised to STRIKE!" There will never again be anyone like Myron Cope and I miss him just like countless others. But I am proud that we can have his legacy live on in the Terrible Towel forever. And you know he'll be helping us out come Sunday.

HERE WE GO STEELERS

"This is the story of how the disparate worlds of the Allegheny Valley School, where communication is often difficult, and the thunderous, full-throated ecstasy of Pittsburgh's fanatics are tied together by a common, 100 percent-cotton thread, the very fabric of Steeler Nation."

I love it.

I forwarded a link to this to a friend who decided he was going to be a cardinal fan this season & he just cannot grasp the meaning of the Terrible Towel.

This was his response;

"Troy should take note on the issue of the Terrible Towel that's received so much press the last couple of days surrounding the mayor of Phoenix and the Cardinal's mascot. A Phoenix sports writer was quoted in saying " the Pittsburgh fans found much glory and glee as they posted a picture of a roadside dead Cardinal and little do they know about disrespect is that our last dead Cardinal name was Pat Tillman who lost his life in Afghanistan". A true hero that is our team's symbol and his memory will long surpass a towel."

They just don't get it, do they?

Don't waste your time trying to talk to a Turdnial fan. Either they are drunk on bandwagon koolaid or they have been staning out in the "ootball desert (of no wins) and their brains are fried.
