Man, talk about being blinded by hate - I understand and actually respect the depth of competition that makes the Steelers-Ravens rivalry among the best league has ever seen - but some of the "Ratbird" statements remind of stuff I (and some of my friends) might have said in 4th or 5th grade. No offense, but holy cow. I'd rather root for a team with one ring and a rivalry, than a team with 5 going on 6 rings that I have no feeling for one way or the other.

Some of you are acting as though the "Stairway to Seven" is only just around the corner. May I remind you how long it took just to get to ring number 6? While I'm as hopeful as any other fan of the black and gold that seven is just around the corner, to blithely assume that it's no big deal if the 49ers tie us because we'll be gettin' number 7 in a year or two - well, just be careful what you wish for.

Good point.
I would be willing to bet if Vegas had odds on which team would win 7 first right now, the 49ers would be a slight favorite even before this Super Bowl is played. If the 49ers win, they would definately be a favorite to get there first.

That being said. Can't cheer for the Ravens. Just can't do it.

I got to breathe or die, I dont't got to root for the Ravens. I hate the Ravens, the Raven Players, the Raven coaches, the Raven Fans, and the Raven loving media. I am a hater, a hater of anything Raven, I hate Raven Symone, Raven haired swim suit models. I hope the 49ers beat them the worst any team has ever been beat in a SB. I hope Ray Lewis is stabbed in the tunnel by the families of his victims and they get a deal to beat the rap while exalting the Lord almighty in a way most convincing.

Maybe Steelers Fever Moderators and Admins can make a suggestion on what shots to down, or what medication to take for a SB pairing such as this - I usually get excited to watch the SB, no matter who is in it. It would be different if someone else was in over our hated rivals, or if they were in, but they were going up against the Falcons. To have the NFC equivalents of the Ravens and my 2nd least favorite coach go up against my most hated team - this is a BAD SB - and, honestly - I will watch it - but won't be paying close attention like I normally do - probably because of the beer and wings

All that said, let's at least keep 1 thing clear - we'll get to see 2 Harbaughs crying and whining - which is good joking material - AND 1 of them will go home heartbroken, while the other knows they had to beat their brother to do it. Seems poetic for a couple of whiners to me.

The way I look at it is that SF may win its sixth, but we've been to eight, which is more than they can say.

Yeah SB's are hard to come by, if niners tie us guess what?. They'll be almost just as good next year unless the ole SB hangover takes affect.
