Pittsburgh's Going to the Super Bowl! (again)

I've been a Steeler fan since the early 70's. Of course, I grew up in Pittsburgh, so it just makes sense. But through sojourns in North Carolina, Washington DC area, and St. Louis area, I remain (and will remain) a Steeler fan. Now, my own son is learning the joys of fandom, and watching the games with his dear-old-dad. And Pittsburgh's going to the Super Bowl!

It doesn't get much better than that!

i only watched the last 5 or 10 minutes. i get too nervous. i'm not a football fan per se but i know how much the wins mean to the fans and the team and our terrific coach.

go stillerz!

it's just icing on the cake that president obama is a fan and that dan rooney is one of obama's biggest fans. he gave obama one of the game balls!

just cool to have a prez rooting for the hometown team.

I'd've figured Obama for a Bears fan, what with his Chicago connections.... No matter. As long as he doesn't pull a Nixon, and start suggesting plays for the SUper Bowl!

no, maybe basketball stuff. he likes to play that. nixon, oh geez that was a blast from the past. ; )

people are going nuts here buying anything that has anything to do with the steelers! there is some really strange stuff but it's fun.
