Guest Column-10 things I hate about Pittsburgh Steelers fans

This was in my inbox when I arrived home from work.
Thanks to my good friend Big Don for sending it!

Guest columnists on ThoughtsofRS aren't necessarily the opinions of TRS and are the opinions of the guest columnist.
Although on this one.......

TEN THINGS I DISLIKE ABOUT PITTSBURGH STEELERS FANS
BY BIG DON
A SUBURBAN PITTSBURGHER AND NOT A STEELERS FAN

10. STEELER FANS ARE THE LOUDEST PEOPLE (I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE USED TO SCREAMING AT YOUR TELEVISION SET TO WATCH YOUR STEELER HEROES, OR YOU HAVE TO SCREAM OVER PEOPLE AT THE BAR YOU SIT IN ALL DAY, BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE SO LOUD IN A NORMAL SITUATION)
9. STEELERS FANS THAT TAKE THEIR SHIRT OFF WHEN IT IS TEN DEGREES OUTSIDE. (THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO GET ON TELEVISION!)
8. IF STEELER FANS LOVE THEIR TEAM SO MUCH, THEN WHY DO THEY PRONOUNCE IT BY SAYING "PICKSBURGH STILLERS" OR "PITTSBURGH STILLERS."
7. "HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO" SOUNDS LIKE IT SHOULD BE LYRICS FROM A SYNTH-POP SONG FROM THE 1980'S.
6.  THE SUPER SEVENTIES STEELERS WERE NOT SO SUPER (A FEW PLAYERS ON THOSE TEAMS HAVE ADMITTED TO USING STEROIDS, (BUT STEELER FANS DON'T VIEW THAT IS CHEATING BECAUSE THOSE PLAYERS WORE A STEELER UNIFORM.)
5. AT THE END OF A 7-9 OR 6-10 SEASON, THERE ARE 10,000 TO 20,000 NO SHOWS AT A STEELERS HOME GAME. (REAL FANS DON'T HOP ON AND OFF THE BANDWAGON, THEY STICK WITH THEIR TEAM. (EXAMPLES: CLEVELAND, BUFFALO, GREEN BAY, WASHINGTON, KANSAS CITY)
4. JUST BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING CITIES HAVE TEAMS IN YOUR STEELERS' DIVISION, YOU HATE THE CITIES OF CLEVELAND, CINCINNATI, AND BALTIMORE, AND MOST OF YOU HAVE NEVER VISITED ANY OF THESE CITIES. (I HAVE VISITED ALL THREE OF THESE PLACES, AND EACH CITY HAS SOMETHING TO OFFER.)
3. STEELER FANS HAVE A "STEELER FLAG" HANGING OUTSIDE THEIR HOUSE. (THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - NOBODY WAS INJURED OR DIED DEFENDING A STEELER FLAG. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED OR KILLED DEFENDING THE AMERICAN FLAG.)
2. MOST STEELERS FANS SAY "WE ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL" (UNLESS YOU HAVE A TICKET TO THE GAME, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL)
1. STEELERS FANS ON WELFARE IN THE PITTSBURGH AREA SHOULD NOT BE SPENDING MY TAX MONEY ON A $150 - $200 STEELER JERSEY THAT HAS THE LATEST SUPER BOWL PATCH ON IT. (I WILL GLADLY TAKE MY TAX MONEY BACK AND SPEND IT ON TWO OR THREE WEEKS OF FOOD FOR ME, THE ONE THAT EARNED THE MONEY.)
Editors Note-An Honorable Mention from the editor
Why is it a must for Steelers fans to update their Facebook status with every play?
Think about it like this-The people that care are watching the game themselves.
I say this with "love" as some of my Facebook friends are Steeler fans and most of them do this.
For the life of me,I cannot figure out why.....

Hey now, some of us LIKE synth-pop songs from the 1980's.
