Default Bye WEEK blues.........

So am I the only member of the NATION who just hates the bye week.
I understand the ramifications of my last statement- but I do . I know we need to regroup, and rebuild.
But on a personal level, I am bummed there is no Steeler Football this weekend , I guess I need a week of preperation to Kick SD's arse.
I need advice if you read this, I have been seeing this new girl( she's real) and I am thinking of asking her to watch the SD game with me.
But, I don't know if she can handle the perogis, Iron city, "Here WE GO " + renegade 100 times . What should I do , I think she should know what kind of fan I am , and if she likes me this is a huge part of my life.

Oh wise members of Steeler Nation this is only a 3rd date, should she be put up black n' gold alter this soon . NEED YOUR HELP.

( oh and please make fun of me at your will )
go steelers

I usually HATE a bye week, but in this case I welcome it. I think this week will allow Cowher to refocus the team and get everything back on track.

That's what I hope for anyway...

I would hope so--those blow up dolls can be very fickle... (hehe, I crack myself up )

Tell her --who knows--maybe she's a football fan as well, and even if she's not, she needs to know how important it is to you. If she likes you, it won't matter even if she doesn't like football.

You answered your own quiery here, wadester. Honesty is always the best policy. Invite her to take in the Chargers game with you, ask her what she likes to eat and drink and be sure to have all of her faves there. Good luck and have a great time!

It is all about TV - NFL charges the networks for 17 weeks of games while each team plays 16 games.

Well, you might ask, if there must be a bye week to get more $$$, why not have the byes start around mid-October rather than be over by week 10 so at least teams can get some rest after getting banged up earlier in the season rather than start byes in week 3?! Again, it is $$$ - networks want everyone playing for ratings by early November once baseball is over.

I hate the bye week

It works out great for me; we have a big fundraiser for The Drive to Survive, which benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Last year our small club of around 100 people raised over $8000; this year we're already over $10000, and we typically raise about 20% of the final amount on the day of the drive. So we're hoping to go over $12000 this year!

You're 3rd date and she doesn't know how you feel about the Steelers???!!! And any girl that wouldn't love perogis and beer?????....well she wouldn't be worth having! I can't believe that you didn't check out all of these prerequisites in advance! Have fun.

I agree, it's gonna suck with our Steelers football this weekend. On the plus side, Troy has more time to get back healthy.

And their isn't really any good college games either. I'm going over to Nantucket to watch the Blue Angels if it doesn't get rained out.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.
