1) That Mike Tomlin is hot.

2) That Tomlin is like an older Omar Epps...And he speaks well too....

3) Ben has really lost some weight...He looks cute again...sort of


I enjoy watching the game with them because they truly get that Steeler football is special, and the organization is one of the best in the league. But.....I am going to have to write up a list of things that cannot be uttered during a game....And calling anyone on the field hot, is going to be #1.

Anyone else had similar experiences watching games in mixed company.

Been there brother, and I feel your pain....We used to have a young lady who worked here who used to live in western PA....I thought she had my back until we wre watching a game at work and she suddely blurted out..."The emblem fell off one side of that players helmet"......

Rule # 3: If you are gonna call yourself a fan...do a little homework....love them enough to KNOW them....otherwise your no better than a Bengal fan. I was so embarrassed for her that I almost pissed my stripes.
