Hello all,

Well I finally got a chance to get back on the internet. I left the states a few days after the Super Bowl and I'm now in the great Sandbox.. Bahrain that is, the tiny island off the coast of Saudi Arabia, oh how wonderfull to be in a tent with 8 other guys and sleeping on a cot. Oh how wonderfull to have the water supply go down right in the middle of a shower and the food, now that is another story. But atleast I can get access to the internet to email the wife and check out the forum....

I'm trying to read up on all I can but I only get 30 minutes a day so I have to spend my time on here wisely!!!!!

Anyways just wanted to say WORLD CHAMPIONS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah but it's not all bad.

They have good shwarma's and you can always go over to the Rock Bottom club to pick up English flight attendants.

Thanks for all the comments and those of you that have been here, you know!!!

It's my 8th trip to the box, so you get used to what is here. I just wish I was home still celebrating!!!!

It's crazy how many posts are up in the forum, awesome to see how fast it's growing. More Steeler fans the better!!!!!!!!!

I love being able to get updated news and just to know what is going on with the players, keep up the great work mods!!!

Everybody keep waving those towels, even in the off season.
