Default My Last Super Bowl

This will most likely be my last Super Bowl as I am terminally ill.

I have been a Steelers fan since 1971. Growing up in New York and then Chicago was tough going against the Giants, Jets and Bears but I hung in there and got in lots of fights over it which I always won, lol!

Many of my friends have asked me what I would like to do if I could do anything. I always answer the same; I want to see the Steelers win 1 more Super Bowl. They all think that I should be asking for something more or different but what's better than watching our Steelers win the Super Bowl? Especially knowing that they would be the first team to win 6!

Ok so my second wish would be to talk to my childhood hero, Lynn Swann too, lol.

I am leaving a 9 year old son that is a Cardinals fan and my 17 year old daughter is a Bears fan (his favorite color is red and she was born in Chicago). Since I have never seen a Pittsburgh home game they all have promised to take my ashes to Heinz Field 1 day for a game.

I so hope they win this year and hope that all you get to see their 20th Super Bowl win!

I hope this wasn't too morbid for any of you...Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go!

This needs to get the attention of a news reporter. They need to get you to Tampa, fly you down. Does anyone on here have connections that can help? Go Steelers Man! You are one of many reasons that they Steelers Nation is so GREAT! Good luck, I hope you can see many more SBs

Well, there was that one espn.com reporter who posted in the rituals/superstitions thread earlier:

I mean, who knows if anything you read on the Internet is 100 percent legit (no disrespect intended, but that goes for both this and the alleged reporter), but if both are this time, that could have been some pretty fortunate timing.

I wish I had some connections, because if I did, you`d be standing right beside MT on the sidelines w/ the players. All that said, there was once a time in life when 5 different Doc`s told my wife she had MAYBE 5 years to live, likely 1-2 (cancer), now 13 years later and they are scratching heads and saying..."ummm....well...you shoulda....I mean....ummm...well how about that!" DO NOT SUCCUMB TO OTHERS OPINIONS!" We will all meet our maker someday, but if you do not feel that it is your time...make it so! I pray that we win the SB and that gives you either the peace you seek or the motivation to hang for #7!!!!!
I can think of no better reason for our boys to pull out all stops and do this thing. I wish for you...PEACE!
