Traditionally the Terrible Towel was originally just meant for the playoffs and Big time games for the Steelers..but as the years rolled back, its been an icon for all games..and the Black Towel has been mainly for playoff games..

Anybody have a Black TT they are breaking out for this game or are you sticking w/ the original Yellow one? Ive got a black one I havent used much over the years because its pretty special to me and one that they dont make anymore, that style anyways.

Not sure if I should buck the good luck of the yellow towel this weekend and break out the big guns black towel or not?

I have a black one, but its just not the same! Its on my pool table, I also have the original which is a reall faded yellow color! Tomorrow I`ll stick with the newer brighter yellow!

Way to superstitous to change now. Bradshaw throwback, same seat, remote pointed just the right way, volume set on 27. on and on! Nothing changes!

Yeah thats what Im thinking too cleve. I havent used the black one all year and Im afraid to change it.

I have a faded old style TT that I have since retired and used for player autographs. Lloyd, Woodson,Lipps,Tuman,Faneca to name a few.

I have two...I have a 79 Super Bowl anniversary TT from last year (looks much like the original). I also have a regular black one. I break them both out for the playoffs. If someone is over to watch the game with me then they get the black one.:sign08:

The black TT was an afterthought and was forced to be made upon conception. Gold is power and needs to be waved in the playoffs. Always in the direction the Steelers are going so the winds of fortune are behind their backs and the opposition has to go against it. Use the Gold/yellow towel. It is magical.

do not change anything. it will disrupt the ebb and flow of the universe and throw everything off kilter. use the black if you have been using it all year. use the yellow if you have been using it all year. there is too much at risk to change anything now, and if you do change something we will know and we will find you:wink: . GO STEELERS GO, YEAH!:banana:
