Default You Know You're a Steelers fan when...

Let's see how long we can make this! I'll start.

You think paying $75 dollars for groceries is nuts, but think nothing of paying $1000 for Steeler garb.

You think the Giant Eagle is on the ends of the Earth, but when you go out of town you tell people that you live "right down the block" from Heinz Field.

You'd skip a family reunion to go watch the Steelers train up in Latrobe

You saved up all these years for your dream vacation, then spend the entire savings on a Steelers/Browns game

You have five T-shirts that says "Cleveland sucks"

You get Steeler fight songs stuck in your head

You consider The Wheels on the Bus a fight song

If the teacher at the local preschool doesn't teach The Wheels on the Bus, you accuse them of being a Browns fan

You've started calling people you don't like Seahawk fans or Browns fans

You own Steeler jerseys that they don't sell anymore (and you were born after '85)

When you meet out of towners, you only think of them by their football teams (ex: a person from New Orleans is automatically a saint fan, a person from Indy is a Colts fan... you get the idea)

You start comparing quarterbacks, whether or not they're Steelers, to Terry Bradshaw

You've tried to make a Brown's pinata, but couldn't for awhile because you didn't know what the heck a Brown was.

You then made a dog piniata instead of a Brown piniata, whatever a brown supposed to be

Church lets out early for Steeler games

You know the Four seasons: Preseason, football, playoffs, and offseason with nothing to do on Sundays

You own more than one Original Terrible Towel

When the Steelers are in the playoffs, the church crowd chants "Here we go Steelers, here we go!" on their way out.

Teachers cancelled classes after playoff games and the Super Bowl because they didn't want to deal with the hungover students that actually made it to class

that's all I can think of. Anybody got more?

good post.

you know youre a FOOTBALL fan when you visually imagine how far you could punt your neighbors yapping chuihuahua. when you see it sitting there you wonder if you could kick it over the telephone wires for a field goal.

you know youre a steelerfan:

when youre still convinced kordell stewart shouldve been able to win a superbowl if not 2.

when you think bumble bees look like flying insects in tiny steeler jerseys

when the childrens story "lambert the sheepish lion" offends you.

when you think terry bradshaw is the greatest tv personality of all time

when your convinced his daytime talk show shouldve been more succesfull than "dr. phil"

when you think painted curbs and road stripes are "gold"

when you get dressed and you think red, blue, black, and yellow match.

when you think a yellow shirt or tie goes best with a tuxedo.

when you see a brand new black vehicle you think how much cooler it would be with 2 huge yellow racing stripes across the hood and trunk.

You're going to see Failure to Launch just cause Terry Bradshaw's in it.

Great heres a few:

You know Lyn Swan is going to win governor for PA just by announcing his running.

You know you will vote for Swannie without even hearing what he will do for the state.

Whenever you go to a party everyone you meet always knows at least one Steelers fan not including yourself.

You keep very close track of where your Terrible Towel and Steelers jersey(s) are in case of fire they are the most valuable items that you would grab first out the door.

Nothing is ever "black and yellow" because with those two colors together it's always Black n Gold.

when your wife is in labor you tell her to hold it untill the game is over.

when we run into strangers wearing steelers gear we start talking like we knew each other for years.

you have a heart felt moment when your 2yrs old son says the words Cleveland Sucks.

First phrase my son will learn: "Here we go"

Second: "Browns suck!"

..any gold vehicle with black trim is automatically a Steelers car-you daydream about what Steelers stuff you could add to it, if it were yours. Especially if it's one of those "gold" Corvettes.
..shopping for a car, there are only certain colors you will consider, colors that will match any Steelers stuff you want to put on it. Of course, those colors would be black, gold, white, red or blue, my preferences are in that order.
..of course, before you even find that perfect car, you already have your Steelers accessories chosen, wondering if they make Steelers seat covers!

If you truly believe that the term "seahawks fan" is an oxymoron.
If you spend all day looking up stuff about the players personal lives.
If you have ever been to Ben's Blog.
If you have posted a relpy on Ben's Blog.
If you can't concentrate on your homework because you would rather be reading said blog.
If you went out and bought a "Drink Like a Champion Shirt"
If you spend your brake at work on any web sight related to the steelers.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.
