I know yinz remember the masks worn by some fellas in the stands during the playoff game vs. San Diego:

Well, I , like many other in Steeler Nation, was very excited to see them on TV and wanted to get one for myself.

Living in Mexico City, I was able to track down a distributor of wrestling masks and asked about these two particular models. I was able to find the one on the left

And I'm still trying to track down the one on the right. If anybody is interested in purchasing these, let me know on this thread and I can get a volume discount and ship to the US to you guys.

I saw it on eBay for $100 bucks

But I'm sure we can get them here in Mexico for considerably lower. These are professional grade lycra masks. If yinz are interested let me know and depending on how many we purchase in bulk we can get a better price.

Looking forward to hearing from yinz!

I think I would go on Ebay and get a 3" fabric logo patch and cover that circle on the ear.

I couldn't get it to work either. Until I tried it with photobucket.

I don't know...the Lucha Libre thing reminds me a little too much of "Bring out the Gimp."

Then again, I've never been a fan of wrestling, so I may be alone in such thoughts.

Thanks so much. I use imageshack cause you don't need to create an account and I am lazy. Do you need one for photobucket?

Yes, but IIRC, there's not much to creating one.
