As a Wisconsin resident, I won't surprise anyone by announcing my alliegance to the Green Bay Packers.

Eesh. First Styx, now the Steelers. Why exactly do we put up with you, Jim?

The Steelers are actually my favorite AFC team, I've liked them since the Rocky Bleier days.

My husband and I are usually rather indifferent to sports, but we've been bitten this year. Maybe it was that Favre moved on /img/vbsmilies/smilies/bounce.gifbut we're actually having friends over to watch the game. On our 52" TV. Which we bought so we could watch nature programming! /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

GO PACK !!!

As 40-year Chicago-area residents, we are... lukewarm Bears fans.

We are, however, sort-of-rabid Stillers fans. My daughter and her family moved to Picksburg about six years ago and, about three days after arriving, were rabid Stillers fans.  The whole dang town is.  Every game weekend, everybody in town wears the jersey, including, on Fridays, the staff and the executives at her office. My daughter has a tailgate party (even with only the family) every game day. We picked  up her enthusiasm on various visits, and made sure we had a Terrible Towel to wave for good luck during games.

The Terrible Towel was launched by a long-time and well-liked Piksburg sports broadcaster to let people show support for the team.  ALL sales proceeds go to a  local childrens' charity.  So- we bought one. Don't know where the name came from.

Watch the shots of the stands this Sunday.  There will be...several...Terrible Towels on display./img/vbsmilies/smilies/peace.gif

Trying to give you outlanders a little insight on the local dialect, too. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

Have a great weekend.

GO COWBOYS !!!!!!

Oh wait, I'm sorry, we're just hosting.

Forgot we s  k.

It was cheaper to get a table up close to see Prince @ a small venue, than seats for the game.

Although JerryWorld offered season seat and suite holders 800. tickets to stand outside

and watch the game on a screen. Today it's 13 deg. snow tonight with rolling blackouts all through the state.

Go Steelers

Wasn't that the home of Iron City Beer?

The stale pale ale with the foam on the bottom.

The veggies are washed and cut, the fruit is ready to be cut for salad, the salmon spread made, the almond macaroons dipped in chocolate, and the guests will be here before long. One of them is bringing the beer, as I have no idea what to purchase or how much. One guy is bringing Irish whiskey, so that'll put a shine on things!

Whichever team you're rooting for, I hope you have fun watching the game.

 -2 1/2
O/U - 44 1/2

These 2 teams are similarly built and very evenly matched. I think that a lot of luck and good bounces will have a lot to do w/ the outcome. Stopping the run is important, but won't stop either QB. Both have ratings over 100 when the run isn't working and both can handle good pass-rush defenses. Both offenses are well aware of the other defense and vice versa. Just for fun, the O/U on 53 1/2 is +280, and overtime is +800.

I'm going w/:  
 26 - 21

I'm a fan of [color= rgb(255, 64, 0)]'da[/color]  [color= rgb(0, 0, 64)]BEARS[/color]. I would not mind a big Steeler victory, including a lot of Packer injuries.

You hope for injuries? Seriously, what is wrong with you?

There is nothing wrong with me. I'm a BEAR fan, I seriously dislike the Packers. Now just like a whole lot of other times, you have read way more into what I said than was really there. Did I say "maimed" or "crippled"?. NO. Did I say I wanted to see a career-ending injury? NO. Was I at all upset to see Woodson out of the game? No. That is part of the game. Boo-Hoo. I've just gone through 2 weeks of hearing about the Bears' QB Jay Cutler not being a real player, not having any toughness, blah blah yatta yatta, after a game-ending injury. 

I have no idea if you know anything about this game, but it's a very painful memory for me, a BEAR fan. 

In a 1986 game against the Green Bay Packers, [QB Jim] McMahon sustained a season ending injury when defensive lineman Charles Martin grabbed him from behind and body-slammed him to the ground on his previously injured shoulder (after McMahon had passed the ball for an interception and officials had turned their attention downfield).

There was no reason for this, both players were well away from the play, and would have no further impact on it's outcome. It ended McMahon's season. I seriously dislike the Packers. I don't like the Vikings either. I really hate the Red Wings and I can't stand the Mets. I'm a sports fan, a Chicago sports fan.

I'm sorry if you didn't care for what I had to say. I'm sorry being that you are a moderator that you didn't just have the courtesy to ask me in a PM to edit my post. That I would have done very quickly. I'm also sorry that since you asked me publicly if there was anything wrong with me that I had to make this post now.
