And, lastly, just this past season, the Steelers were 6-3 and one of the front-runners to win the SuperBowl (before BB's injury).
So, to be disappointed with this season speaks volumes to just how effing SPOILED Steelers fans can be.
My brother-in-law & I drive our wives nuts, when we complain about losing play-off games... because, our wives are Chargers fans, and most years, all that they want is to even make the play-offs (winning a SuperBowl is not even on their radar). So, again, Steelers fans are a spolied bunch... but, that might be why the team is so successful: a great season to a Chargers fan is "the worst season ever" to a Steelers fan.
Anyway... I like Cold Stone better than Dairy Queen.
I think it's okay to be disappointed with this season. On the other hand, I do agree with you and him that it does speak volumes about us but then again, I do think it goes with the territory, we have as you said been to 15 championship games and won 6 SBs. So, I think expectations go up with that. On the other hand, I look at the local Redskins who have a pretty decent tradition and they just hosted their first playoff game since 1999 this season. As for the ice cream, I'm a Baskin Robbins guy but ice cream is ice cream, you're bound to get something good wherever you go.
