Default The Big Lie Continues: Ushers Handing out Terrible Towels

Apparently on the Michael Medved show, a caller said he was at the game and said ushers were handing out Terrible Towels to people as they walked in.

Yeah, ludicrious, I know. But people are repeating this crap all over the place, on the radio, on message boards, and soon to be -- on tv.

We need to quash this rumor quickly. No false charges can go unanswered. If we allow this to stand, they can say anything. The Nazi propoganda machine was a proponent of The Big Lie: "If we say something long enough and loud enough, people will believe it." Sadly, that sentiment is true today...

Here's something I posted on one message board:


Quote:
"they even conveniently sold those yellow Terrible Towels here Sunday at Ford Field."

Why would they sell them if they were handing them out? That does not make sense.

WTF, let me guess they had people follow them around forcing them to wave them too....wow, people get really stupid when they lose (or maybe they are always that stupid).

Koopa, that was my freakin point!!! Who cares if they were giving them away, selling them, etc......you still need to raise it proudly above your head and wave it strong! And come on guys, how many would they have sold, you think a Steeler fan would travel to Detroit without a towel??

I'll tell you that I care because it's just another way the Seahawks sympathizers and Steelers haters will try to bring down the achievements of our Steelers.

My friends were there, and I know they weren't passing Terrible Towels out at the game. But the Seat Cushions they passed out looked great!
