    LOL. IMHO, the wafer transforms into the body of christ, so that sacrament should make it gluten free.

    It reminds me of hearing guys argue that they wanted to keep real wine for the blood because the alcohol would be more sanitary since we're all drinking from the same cup. Anyone that thinks they're going to get infected by the body or blood of christ clearly doesn't have faith and is missing the whole point of going to church. Or it's like these folks are accepting Jesus is like Santa. Conceptually good, but you know.....I'm not going to go there because I don't want to offend anyone and I generally think God and church and stuff is all good for many people, but it does make me laugh a little.

    Had a buddy whose brother was just a plain bad dude. He would go into bars specifically looking to beat the S out of people. Been in and out of jail a few times, but doesn't seem to care who he hurts or maims.

    "Fan" is short for fanatic, football is a religion to some, see below.

    1.
    a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause.

    synonyms: zealot, extremist, militant, dogmatist, devotee, sectarian, bigot, chauvinist, partisan, radical, diehard, ultra, activist, apologist, adherent
    Now, add in the alcohol and a "fan" from another team and you have a highly combustible situation. I would also say that the brawlers have issues at work, home, friends, the neighbors, something that lights the fuse and alcohol helps cultivate. It's ridiculous to me but that's me.

    Perhaps they should call them fanatoholics.

    Last time I went to a Steelers game an insane person wanted to fight me in the parking lot, threatening to call his son and throw me under a car. To be fair, I don't think this guy was a fan tailgating in the parking lot, waiting for the gates to open. He was just whacked in the head.

    Then, same day, inside the stadium a nice man belligerently accused me of cutting in front of him in the restroom, which I did not do. He later apologized and informed me, "sorry, I havn't pi$$ed in a week."

    I also witnessed multiple altercations and 1 fight when I took my son to the Penguins vs. Flyers stadium series game. Usually the hockey crowd is much more laid back, but all day tailgating + Heinz Field + Philadelphia = my son learning new words.

    I believe I read that both of the people fighting in the video were both raven fans fighting over who the QB should be

    C'mon, man...I apologized for that. Let it go, will ya???
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.
