I'm proud to say that I did my part last week to take the Terrible Towel to all corners of the Earth. I was blessed to be a part of a team that went to help build a hospital and ministry center in Northern Togo, a country in West Africa. The town was Mango. They do not have much there, but this hospital will go a long way in helping these people out. So, I took the opportunity to take the towel with me. So, even though I missed the two playoff games, I had a much greater mission. So, while the Steelers were winning playoff games, I was taking the Steelers iconic towel to this small corner of the Earth. These pictures are from Mango, Togo. I hope the pictures are viewable, I'm new to posting pictures here.

Hey DJ, nice job and everything but did you really have to get your picture taken next to a BIMBO sign? :moon :lol:

Great stuff. I took it up to Machu Picchu :) This was in July 2008 and guess what happened that year? It has been blessed by the Incas.

Thanks all, it was a great experience. I submitted these pics for the WPXI fan of the day contest. Any suggestions for other places to submit the pic? I was wondering if the Steelers organization keeps track of the whereabouts of the mysterious Terrible Towel.
