The Terrible Towel is more than just a towel, it's a symbol, a representation of everything that Steelers live and die for. The Terrible Towel for Pittsburgh is the US flag for the US.

When I win my first Oscar for directing, bet your ass I'm waiting that thing on my way down the aisle to accept it.

They aren't copying us because 75% or more of those towels will be littering their trash cans and parking lots after the game even if they win. A Terrible Towel is handed down from father to son. Mine is in my will. This is just a one-time publicity stunt that gets a faceless corporation mentioned in the local rag. If the word "Verizon" appears on the towel then it's beyond stupid.

Nobody hands Terrible Towels out. They are purchased for charity, and handed down. Not even close to copying us.

Being highly fucntioning autistic, the towel to me is more than just about my football team but it's part of being autistic too. Myron's son has autism. He had all the profits from the proceeds go to the home his son lives in I believe. I find it amusing when fans of other teams badmouth the towel but then their teams decide it's a good idea to get their own version. They have every right to mimic it but really it seems like every team when they play the Steelers in a big home game has to come up with their own version of it and it's lame really. Create your own traditions. Traditions are made not spoteasous. We didn't always have the terrible towel but we now have an icon.

I'm not even sure the Steelers were first.
Lynn Swann was the first to actually start waving the terrible towel... it caught on after that.
Its said that Steeler Nation is the 12th man... and the Terrible Towel is the 13th. In addition, its said to have almost "Voo-Doo" style powers. So be careful talking about the towel...
