‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl

‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl, when along the gulf shore,
Steelers fans were praying for “just one more;”

The players were nestled all snug in the sack,
With visions of the first NFL Six-Pack;

Coach Tomlin was young, but wise for his years,
So I drifted off to sleep without any fears;

When at the stadium there arose some strange chatter,
The Cardinals feared, what was the matter;

We heard “Okel Dokel”, we heard “Double Yoi,”
We jumped from our beds, our hearts jumped for joy;

He stood at the fifty with a grin ear to ear,
Steelers fans everywhere started to cheer;

Then in an instant to our surprise,
This little old man had tears in his eyes;

He went to the booth and there took his chair,
While Terrible Towels waved in the air;

Then over the airwaves came his shrill voice,
The Steelers Nation began to rejoice;

He said, “I am back, but you know I can’t stay,
I just had to see my Steelers play;

From my home up above, I have a great view,
But I wanted to celebrate here with you;

So bring on the Birds, we’ll send them a flyin’,
On the way back to Phoenix, they will be cryin’;

Ben, Hines, Troy, Jeff and all of the rest,
No matter the outcome, to me you’re the best;”

The airwaves went silent, the stadium still,
Was this just a dream, it seemed so real;

In our team we have faith, in our team we have hope,
But the game’s not the same without Myron Cope.

‘one for the other thumb’

SteelerLadies.com

Some genius decided to take Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” and change the lyrics a bit. The result is much better than some of the other Steelers parodies I’ve seen out there. Check out the website to listen to the whole song as well as a transcript of the lyrics.

Our Father who art in Pittsburgh

The Steelers Prayer:

Our Father who art in Pittsburgh,
Football be thy game.
Thy kingdom come,
Five Super Bowls won,
On earth as it is at Heinz Field.
Give us this day, a playoff victory
and forgive us our penalties,
As we defeat those who play against us,
But lead us into victory
And deliver us to Tampa.

Amen.

(By the way, does anyone know where I can find these M&Ms?)

Sandwiches, anyone?

Pennsylvania Gov Rendell is betting sandwiches on a Pittsburgh-Philadelphia Superbowl.

“He will bet cheese steaks to go to a Pittsburgh-area senior center as well as a Pittsburgh-area homeless shelter if the Steelers win and Primanti (Bros.) sandwiches to go to a Philadelphia homeless shelter and senior center if the Eagles win,” Rendell spokesman Chuck Ardo said.
