Tired of the hate

For those of you living in a secluded cave in Antarctica equip with wifi, the Steelers did not win the Superbowl. This might come as a shock to all of you, but I'm okay with that.

I like the Steelers because I grew up outside of Pittsburgh and it is a birthright--sort of a requirement, if you will.  In fact, I'm surprised that we didn't have to take a Steel Curtain 101 class in high school.

My dad has always cheered for the Steelers.

My grandmother still cusses at the Steelers.

So I guess you can say that my family lives and breaths black and gold.

Does that mean that I love the choices that Big Ben has made?  Hardly.  Does that mean I agree with every coaching decision they make.  Not so much.  I'd like to believe that I'm a gracious loser.  That I know there is always next year.

What I can't understand is why people whom I call "friends" felt the need to spew nothing but hatred on their Facebook pages. 

F**k this and F**k that.  S**tsburgh loses.  Let me whip my *ss with your terrible towel.  Really?  This is how you celebrate?

What it comes down to is that this is a football game played by overpaid adolescences.  Apparently most of their fans are adolescences too. 

If you are a Green Bay fan, a true fan, than I say congratulations to you.  You played a great game.  You capitalized on all of our mistakes.  You turned those turnovers into point.  You brought your A game.  Pittsburgh did not.

To all of you routing for the the Packers just because you hate the Steelers, please don't FaceBook me.  I'm
 busy deleting some of my "friends".

Some people have lost sight of reality. Unfortunately, many of them are in politics as well as rabid fanism.

I got so frustrated when looking at my facebook page after the game. People are sooooo ridiculous some times. My parents were rooting for Green Bay and we were pulling for the Steelers but they didn't act like immature idiots after they won. Some people never grow up I guess.

Great post! I am a huge sports fan but get very disenchanted with the craziness of it all. Love Jill Scott!
