Cool Bless me Steeler Nation for I have sinned...

Last night I was leaving the bar where the local Steeler Club meets to watch the game... as you can imagine I was rather p*ssed off. So I am heading to my car and some idiot wearing a Tony Gonzales jersey sees I am wearing my #36 Bettis jersey and makes the following snarky comment: "You know Jerome Bettis doesn't play anymore."

Well after a Steeler loss is the WRONG time to mouth off to me, so I responded "Bite me!" In retrospect, I realize I could have been the bigger person and just let it pass, but like I said, I was p*ssed. I know as Steeler fans we pride ourselves on being respectful to fans of opposing teams (with a few possible exceptions) so I know I broke a cardinal rule.

I am quite contrite now and ask for absolution. Thank you.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about that. That is a fairly ignorant statement that idiot made. He asked for that one.

I think you were fine in your response.

While being well within reasonable limits for a response, a better comeback might have been....."sorry, next time I'll wear my Heath Miller jersey. He's a TE still playing that DOES have a Super Bowl Ring..did you know that?"

But the correct answer to someone wearing a Gonzales jersey...is ....."Bettis retired a Super Bowl champion. How are those Chiefs doing?"

You should have told him that the Chiefs haven't played for several seasons. With a 1-6 KC record, I don't think this schmo really has anything to thump his chest about.

Well it seems I made a mistake. Gonzales' jersey # is #88.

I just looked up the jersey (based on what I remember) and it seems he was wearing a 49ers throwback jersey (#87 was Dwight Clark).

I don't think that would help his defense any...you'd both be wearing "throwbacks".

No Worries. Going back to some of the 20/20 hindsite comments, I like the "neither do the chiefs" response.

"Memphis"?

You going to need me to come protect you at the Titans game? You got a couch?

Okay, so he's talking trash about your jersey while he's wearing the jersey of a retired player himself? The guy is a goon, and deserved the response.

Bite me was a fine choice, although,
"Well, neither does your enitre team" would have been pretty good too.
