    Actually, sound is such a great option on this board. The ability we have to imbed video into our threads is a great feature and something I hope we freqently use when the season kicks into gear.

    The start of the season seemed like an eternity away to me, so 100 days actually sounded pretty good. Heck it might even by 99 days by now!

    I've gotten too emotionally involved in the Steelers the last two years, it hurt way too much when they finally lost their last games of the year. I'm going to be more laid back this year, just take it for what it is - a game, a simple diversion, and nothing to get too worked up about.

    HA HA!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    I tell myself that same thing every year, but find myself all knotted up in front of the TV with face all contorted and my wife telling me I look miserable.... This is obviously when the good guys in Black/Gold are not winning. When they're winning, I'm so loud that my wife kicked me out of the house last year during the MN game against the Ravens, when we thumped them. I think emotional involvement is just part of the heritage attached to the Nation's active participants.

    no that still doesnt help at all. after the nba finals are over it will be the worst time of year for sports. stuck with just baseball, there is nothing worse.

    Yes, I have barely enough self-awareness to know that it doesn't matter what my stated intentions are ... I will be a drooling automaton slave to the Steelers schedule this fall. The worst part is when church runs over, and I miss half the first quarter.

    I used to live in Minnesota, near the Wisconsin border. Half the folks were Packer fans, and half were Vikings fans. The minister used to wear a green sash over one shoulder and a purple sash (or whatever you call those things) over the other, so as not to offend anyone in the congregation. And to REALLY not offend, he NEVER went past noon!

    Our minister down here is a nice guy, but seriously lacking in NFL awareness. I guess I'm being tempted (tortured) in some minor biblical way ...

    SA, I solved that problem by attending the early service at 8:30am... But it can make for an early morning if I was up late watching college ball on The Gameplan....

    ...I'm not sure how this is going to be ultimately viewed by the "big guy" upstairs, though... Arranging church attendance around the Steelers...... :P
