Default Goodbye old Friend

As I mentioned in another post...last night was a sad time in our household....we laid to rest my old steeler sweatshirt after 12 years...numerous wins, (some losses)...playoff appearances, championship games..and two superbowls.

My old friend was there to catch both my tears...and my chili-cheese dip. He kept me warm at games...and let the world know that I was a fan of the Greatest Team in the World.

I am so glad that he got to see a Superbowl win before he went to that big Laundromat in the sky.

So please join me in saying ..Goodbye...compadre...amigo...friend.

If I tried to frame that old shirt and put it on the wall in my house...my wife MAY have burnt the house down around it to keep others from knowing about my "problem"

In my Steelers basement, I have seven black bar stools at the bar, I reupholster them all the time with old Steelers shirts, it helps protect the black leather underneath and it looks cool in the all Steelers room

Now THAT is cool!!!..I am in the middle of re-decorating the bathroom off of the family room....It is Black on the bottom and Gold on the top..I painted a Logo on one wall and a helmet on the other....I am going to steal an idea from another member in the forum and put all my "road to the Superbowl" SI covers in black frames....I painted the door trim black and the door itself gold..with 8 inch letters (painted black) that spell Steelers down the door....

My deepest sympathy on your loss. The warmth he held in you and the pride he exuded will always be with you. I know he's hanging on one of those big plush hangers looking good as new. Right next to my old Joe Greene jersey from when I was a kid.

Take heart in knowing that they lived a long full life. Unlike the many Bengals shirts and jerseys that have been discarded by their owners. Many new with tags...born to fans with no love...its sad.

His Steeelers legacy lives on in the many grand jerseys and great grand jerseys we all have. they are gone but not forgotten.

My bathroom, in the garage, is covered in black framed, 70`c 80`, 90`s Steelers SI`s, with a memoribilia shelf, and Steelers border around the top. It also has 41 different Steelers, Pirates and Penguins beer cans. My Steelers collection of collectibles is well over 1000 items now. Running out of space, my entire basement, part of my home office, and garage bathroom, and my best friend even put the Steelers logo in my new sidewalk going to the pool deck, and the deck is surrouned with Steelers walking stones in the mulch beds, I`ve got a disease!
