Hi everyone! Tomorrow the Steelers start their run in the playoffs despite all their injured players. We have always been a diehard Steelers family. We dress Steelers, rewatch past Superbowls over and over, live and breathe Steelers. Our younger son dressed in nothing but black and gold until ,I think, he was 13. Our grandpets wear Steeler collars. My heart has been set on a specific black and gold SUV that I can slap a Steelers helmet decal on. I wear my Steelers coat into enemy territory (Ravens and Browns ). I dare them to sneer!! (smiles ) Because we love them, I have become a Steelers legend. Actually, it is because a few years ago , the men in this house noticed that as soon as I stepped into the family room to join the guys watching the game, our quarterback inexplicably would fumble, throw an interception, or get sacked. This happened over and over again.In reverse, as soon as I would LEAVE said family gathering, our player would make a spectacular catch and run it in!!! I began to get dirty looks as soon as my foot would touch the first step down. Now that the boys are on their own, I prepare the “lucky Steelers food” and retire to the bedroom, close the door so my “bad luck” doesn’t seep out, and watch movies, trying to ignore hubby’s cheers and groans from downstairs. (The boys have been known to call, when we throw an interception , to ask where I was when it happened.) I have taken the higher road—sacrificed myself for the good of my team. All forms of gratitude and appreciation can be forwarded to me!! GO STEELERS!!!!!
