I've dropped about $300 on SB champs gear. And I'll probably buy more when I get back to Pittsburgh around Easter.

A week before the game, police had to shut down the main drag in the city's popular Strip District because fans buying merchandise were clogging the street.
I didn't hear about that, that's pretty crazy. and awesome

Yeah... everywhere except south-central Texas!!!

All the department stores down here will sell is burnt orange Longhorn gear. The Rose Bowl was great and all, but come on, it's the Superbowl?! Remember what that is?!

The only way I can get gear down here is for family up in the 'burgh to ship to me.

I feel your pain... Only green and gold up here in the frozen northland...

My dad in pittsburgh is inundating me with Steeler stuff, though. He sent me all of the clippings from the paper in the burgh during the runup and aftermath of our steamrolling through the playoffs. We had a superbowl party and it was ALL black and gold at my house...thanks to my parents!!!

That is pretty lame isn't it?? A 36-year-old getting "care packages" from his mommy and daddy??? Oh well... If that is what it takes to get black and gold stuff...so be it!!!

The D i c k s around here won't sell any Steeler stuff because they
only carry local teams."

Seeing how I live in Cleveland,I told the guya t the store "I guess you don't like to carry the gear worn by winners then."

My mother also sent me all the newspaper articles from about the Bengals game on through till after the XL. I live out near Philly. :) She also sent me a shirt with the last batch of articles. The stores around here actually have a nice selection of stuff now. That first week after the super bowl, the stores here were selling out as fast as they could stock up.
