I could not care less about the Steelers or Pens. In fact some bigtime Steeler fan here could buy a Super Bowl XIII Terrbile Towel from me. Mint condition, first C-note takes it. :o :o :o :o :o

If you can't get any $$$ for it, I'd recommend using it to clean yourself. You know, after Mexican night... :lol:

Yea...how on earth can you hate fans if they are looking forward to football starting tomorrow. Enough is enough with this baseball team. Moss at cleanup(and I don't blame Russell) is pretty bad...no, really bad!

I just wish this season would come to a merciful conclusion. I will continue to watch or listen when I can but will be relieved when I don't have to tune in cause it's finally over.

Young arms are done and young bats are tired from their first exposure to the length of the season. Everyone including me needs a rest.

I didn't realize our record was that bad. I haven't looked at any box scores, followed any Buc games. I've got ESPN360 online.. been watching college football and helping my kid with her homework..

I like the Steelers and the Ravens. lol Charlie Batch and Hines Ward are my favorite Steelers. I was glad they came back and won tonight. I want to see a Steelers-Ravens AFC final.

I pay more attention to the NFC, being a Lions fan. I think we'll be better than everyone thinks. Matthew Stafford has the best arm of any Lions QB I've seen in my 38 years as a fan. Coupled with Kevin Smith and two freaks of nature, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Pettigrew.. we're gonna be fun to watch!! (Detroit may give up 35 points a game though.)

Hockey.. I'm very curious how the new and improved Canadiens will do. Was kinda glad to see Koivu, Kovalev, Higgins all moved (though Koivu was a fan favorite, the captain and all.) I want to beat the Bruins so badly..

I am not a fan of either team but I will root for them if I see them on TV. I like all the teams in "my" own division as well. My former co-worker roots for the Browns but also likes the Steelers (I thought THAT was impossible.) He has relatives in PA though. He had Browns season tickets for years.

Ollie's notes: At my former workplace it is commonly noted that Pennsylvanians are crazy (LOTS of PA folks in the place.) I can't tell you how many times I heard that in 24 years. The only difference I ever noticed are the accents.

Being a Lions fan I listen to Detroit radio daily (I always get confused with the local weather because I only hear Detroit forecasts. Ha!) Michiganders are all hunters. Every friggin' caller on their sports talk shows wants to talk hunting (the inner city callers are the exception.)

You know, this site is a good one, guys. I can not find a messageboard devoted to the Lions like this site. I often say to myself "I wish you guys were all Lions fans." That would be perfect! Ha!

Or at least I wish Pittsburgh sports talk appealed to me more. When I listen to Pittsburgh stations there is no Pirates talk. For me Detroit sports talk is second to none. They have successful franchises in other sports but fans truly LOVE the Lions (love bashing them. Ha!) Even with the Tigers being playoff bound, people want to talk Lions. Maybe there are just more football fans period. (Also the majority of sports talk hosts here in Cleveland are terrible. Just loud mouthes.)

Oh yeah, and there are no mountains between me and Detroit. I can pick up all the Detroit channels during the day. Ha!

Like this board there are differing views on Detroit sports talk.. some callers refuse to think current management is trying to do things the right way (based on fifty years of futility) The majority of fans are totally realistic. Maybe football is different.. I see Lions fans as being way more patient than Pirates fans (but the Lions have had only nine losing seasons in a row, ten years since reaching the playoffs.. granted, it's even a little easier to make the playoffs in the NFL.)

There are several Lions messageboards but there are too many posters.. people don't seem to get to know one another as well. And there are soooo many people who really know football.. I get lost in the shuffle (let's face it.. I am lost in the shuffle of life!!)

Correction here.

First: In fact some bigtime Steeler fan here could buy a Super Bowl XIII Terrbile Towel from me.

Then later: It's a beautiful towel. Steelers/Rams Super Bowl.

XIII <> Steelers-Rams.

No, that was Super Bowl XIV (14 for you and me).

Super Bowl XIII was the Steelers-Cowgirls.

Upon further review, said Terrible Towel is indeed a Super Bowl XIV towel. I guess I had the right game, wrong Super Bowl. It is a dandy though. :? :? :? :?
