When I lived in Pittsburgh many years ago [90s] I could not even walk past news stands after a Steeler loss. As I'd walk to my classes at Pitt along Forbes or 5th avenues I consciously knew the locations of those green paper machines and would avoid eye contact at all costs! Even as the years progressed and internet took over I would avoid Steeler news sites etc. until the next victory.
I can now at least visit Steeler based message boards and websites mere days following a loss but I'm still unable to visit non partisan sites like Yahoo and ESPN. Even on normal days I can't stomach the Brady and Flacco gushing, but after a loss it's unbearable.
Here I am, less than 48 hours following a miserable loss, posting on a Steelers message board. Maybe we can treat this thread as a "support" thread for those of us who normally avoid Steelers news until the next victory. I'm slowly getting better! Some day I might even be able to watch Sunday/Monday night football after we lose. Let's just pray I don't have to test that out any time soon.
