Play the above song while reading this post! To all of the Jets fans, sorry I am subjecting you to read this... SIKE! My long time readers probably know or have figured out that I am a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan... not that this is any surprise considering I am Pittsburgh born and bred. If you don't follow football, or somehow don't know, the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the New York Jets this Sunday at 6:30pm eastern time. You can bet I will be right in front of the TV screaming the entire time (this is the only exception for me to break the lady-like rules--and I scream LOUD). Luckily, the Steelers are playing at home in the good ol' Steel City and fingers crossed, they will win the AFC championship and head to Texas for Superbowl XLV.
In case you didn't know, Pittsburgh (also known as SIXburgh) is the team with the most Superbowl wins in the NFL. The last time we won the Superbowl, was two years ago when Pittsburgh defeated the Arizona Cardinals in Superbowl XLIII. Three years previous to that, Pittsburgh defeated the Seattle Seahawks in Superbowl XL.
So with that in mind, if your team is out, or you don't know which side to take, go with the "STILLERS". My Current background on my computer is this:

However, this music video is AWESOME because it is all filmed in Pittsburgh and he has a Terrible Towel!
If you happen to be in Pittsburgh, any given football Sunday, then you would be privileged to see:
The Duquesne incline (Pittsburgh has two) decked out in black and yellow Steelers garb. If you were at the game, you would eat:
A Primanti's "sammich".
If you were in Pittsburgh and you were thirsty on gameday, you would have a nice cold...
Iron City beer in hand... pronounced "arhn city" for all the "yinzers" out there. Of course, all Steelers fans like to say a little prayer before each game and it goes a little something like this...
So, if you need more convincing on why you should cheer on Pittsburgh on Sunday, I've written several "Pittsburgh themed" posts in the past which you can find here, here, here, here, and here. Did I mention I love Pittsburgh? Have a fabulous weekend, GO STEELERS!!!!!!!"
