    Yep, definitely go for the jersey. Like I do around here when I wear my Black and Gold or Maize and Blue, it's fun to agitate the locals

    I have to share another story about wearing a jersey in enemy territory. Used to know two transplants that were Chiefs season ticket holders and went to the Chiefs/Clowns game in Cleveland a few years ago. If you remember the game, it was week 1 and the Stains had seemingly stopped KC after John Tait rumbled down the field for about 20 yards with no time left. One of the Stains players, in true Browns fashion, took off his helmet and threw it up in the air at the end of the play. You guys, of course, know what that meant. 15 yard misconduct penalty and one more play for the offense because the game can't end on a defensive penalty. KC kicks a field goal with no time left to win the game, and these guys had to literally be escorted out by security so they wouldn't get killed. Ahh, Cleveland. Gotta love 'em!

    Dude! I thought the same thing when I read that sentence but thought it would get past most of us here. Freaking hilarious. [/quote:1unzcush]

    I only pointed it out because Costanza's got a very good sense of humor and I knew he wouldn't get offended.

    Since he's such a good sport I even made something for him:



    :P

    Ah, the Dwayne Rudd game. A classic example of Cleveland ineptitude.

    Re: Steelers Eagles - Wearing Your Jersey?

    I gotta agree, where it. I wore my Barry Foster jersey into the old Cleveland stadium in '94 without hesitation. I kinda figured there'd be nothing better to die in that day than my Steelers jersey. And hey, the Stains fans didn't have the balls to lay a hand on me...I was Okey-fine, especially since we won! LOL

    Hell, this guy wore his Dale Earnhardt shirt right into the Rusty Wallace section in Bristol...... just sayin

    Wear a black jersey. It hides the stains better.

    Seriously bro...I don't know. If it were me and my friends...especially the ever so large rpm...I would certainly wear it.

I'm actually glad I didn't after the fact because a fight broke out between Steeler and Brown fans...and we about got caught up in it. No doubt in my mind...one of those drunk morons would have taken a swing...and I would have been forced to defend myself (and I suppose the wife. )...possibily leading to me going to jail.

    So...it doesn't make you less of a fan if you don't want to deal with the nonsense. It just means you are a pussy.


    Being a big guy can also have its drawbacks. Especially when the drunks get their beer muscles going and want to test you. Bad move.

    SMG makes a good point though. If you're with your wife/girlfriend and/or kids, then you have to think about their safety. I brought my wife (my gf at the time) to a Steelers/Jets game here and it wasn't bad - we were both in B&G - I wore my 58, she was in 95. We were left alone but we saw some pretty bad fights and harassment. Last years Jets game was tame compared to that, but probably because THE NATION took over the stadium. I guess you can hope for the same to happen in Philly today.

    Not saying that being big doesn't help, but the best thing you can do is NOT BACK DOWN from punks who are looking to start something. Remember when your dad told you to stand up to bullies in school, same rules apply here. Nine times out of ten, they'll back down (just ask the Cinci bun thrower ). And that remaining one time when they don't, hey whatever. Getting a beating doesn't feel nearly as bad as backing down from a guy.

    SMG and Armpit -- good advice. If I was bringing my girlfriend with me, I would go without the jersey.

    It's not so much that I'm afraid to take a beating -- I just want to enjoy the game as much as possible, and also support the team at the same time. In any other stadium, except maybe Oakland, I wouldn't hesitate. But Philly is pretty nuts to begin with, and with the 4 o'clock game, all parties will have that extra 3 hours of drinking.

    I'm certainly hoping that the Steelers Nation takes over the stadium. There are a ton of Steelers fans over here, so I think it is just a matter of whether they can get tickets.

    Re: Steelers Eagles - Wearing Your Jersey?

    2006 Jags game here in Florida, I flew the colors and was with an even smaller buddy of mine who happened to be a Jags fan. I can't tell you how many fans tried to start a fight with me... "Hey, let's kick Hines Ward's AZZZZ." We lost and I didn't have a good time. But, I rocked the jersey and wore it with pride and gave some lip back regarding our 5 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS...... Our history should give you the courage to face the day. Just remember... when you wear the colors, its like Jack Lambert is sitting right next to you.
