Steelers Prevail...

and in their honor I will post the following list that someone forwarded to me:

You Know You're From or In Pennsylvania If:

You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but "Philly." And New Jersey has always been "Jersey."

You refer to Pennsylvania as "PA" (pronounced Pee-ay). How many other states do that?

"You guys" is a perfectly acceptable reference to a group of men & women.

You know how to respond to the question "Djeetyet?" (Didyoueatyet?)

You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala Cynwyd, Duquesne, New Tripoli, Tunkhannock, Punxsutawney, Tamaqua, Susquehanna, Allegheny, and Monongahela.

You know what a "Mummer" is, and are disappointed if you can't catch at least highlights of the parade.

The first day of buck and the first day of doe season are school holidays.

You can use the phrase "fire hall wedding reception" and not even bat an eye.

You can't go to a wedding without hearing the "Chicken Dance," at least one Polka and either an Italian song (sung in Italian,) or "Hava Nagila."

At least 5 people on your block have electric "candles" in all or most of their windows all year long.

You know what a "Hex sign" is.

You know what a "State Store" is, and your out of state friends find it incredulous that you can't purchase liquor at the mini-mart.

You own only three condiments "salt, pepper and Heinz ketchup".

Words like "hoagie", "crick", "chipped ham", "sticky buns", "shoo-fly pie", "pierogies" and "pocketbook" actually mean something to you.

You can eat cold pizza (even for breakfast) and know others who do the same. (Those from NY find this "barbaric".)

You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know it comes in several colors: Red, White, Brown, Gold.

You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, Summer Sausage.

Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans on a great game and a great win.

Congratulations to all who along with Fitz supported the Steelers. Yes my team are good losers as we are when we win. Theres always next year. I hope this string of winning continues for Fitz as he fights for justice. I didn't really like the half time that much. I love the Rolling Stones but something was missing. To all enjoy your evening and remember it starts all over again Monday.

And yeah I guess sliding the ball over the goal line is OK now...

Heh heh I'm not surprised with the win!

They really did good this year, that means we're going to have justice in the courts.

And I guess no attacks...since no neocons or lori neuer ended up trying to blow up the stadium...

As always I'll send my protection....the neocon zionist fascists and so forth are finished. They will no longer scapegoat good americans or people for their ridiculous crimes or the cartel....

I was happy to see the Steelers win. Congrats to the people of Pittsburgh and the Rooneys. And thanks for not setting your town on fire.

But as far as the half-time show, I thought the Kitty Half-Time on Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl was far more exciting.

Watching the Stones made me sad and embarrassed to be a human being.

Mick Jagger has Sharon Stone arms. I'm sorry, but someone has to say it. Time for long sleeves, or three-quarter sleeves any way. Keith Richards moved like he needed a walker. Plus the sound mix was terrible.

Also, is "Satisfaction" a throwback or what? "When I'm watchin' my tv, and that man comes on to tell me, how white my shirts can be. Well he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke the same cigarettes as me."

White shirts? Cigarettes on TV? Might as well be singing "Clang, clang, clang goes the trolley." Or "Once I built a railroad, made it run."

What a drag it is getting old,

Steelers Rock! I love the Bus. He is one classy dude! What a great way to end a great football career is to win the Super Bowl in your hometown.

I just can't wait til the Steelers come to Baltimore next year and cream the Ravens! My brother will hate me for saying this. He is the biggest Ravens fan in Maryland. He lost a lot of money on the Super Bowl.

Even though, I am a Marylander I can't stomach the Ravens. Those who grew up in Southern Maryland and the DC Burbs (Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties) are loyal Redskin fans. Now maybe the Skins will be in the Super Bowl.

My Italian Stallion who lives in Philly who is originally from Pittsburgh was so excited about the win.

Congratulations to the Steelers - they outplayed the Seahawks and so did the refs. The only time I watch Football is at Superbowl so I should keep my mouth shut but was the Seattle quarterback weak? The halftime show was hilarious! Mick Jagger's incredibly rickety bump and grind was so pathetic! that it was almost entertaining. It was certainly funny. He looked like a spastic skinny senior worm. They prove that rock n roll is for the young. They defintely ain't sexy - yuck.
