Yea, I fucking said it. What are you going to do about it? Fuck the Steelers. Yea, fuck 'em. They're a bunch of fucking faggots. Seriously, how could you root for the Steelers? Ooo. Black and Gold. Ooo. We won championships. Ooo. Fucking frontrunners.
It's been awhile, honestly, since I've felt this much animosity towards this NFL team from that state in the East. The Browns have always been no. 1 in my heart, but whenever we faced the Steelers, it just didn't have the same pizzazz, the same jen-ne-se-quois (that's as close as you're getting for a spelling. I don't look up French words, I just let em ride). I'll even admit it, we've been punching bags.
But that's changed. Oh fuck yes, it's changed.
This whole rant is coming from an isolated incident that happened about 10 minutes ago. You'll notice, if you read the chat transcript from ESPN.com's Scouts, Inc. chat, that I posed a question to Mr. Matt Williamson, a native Pittsburghian, asking why he thought that, on a short week after a physical game facing an opponent looking for revenge, that the Steelers would waltz to an easy win. Harmless enough, right? Well, here's his response...
Matt Williamson: (1:37 PM ET ) Yeah, I think they handle them. Heinz Field is a brutal place to play and the short week won't affect PGH. They own the Browns and are still a far more talented overall team. Ben and Willie P should both have big days and just own the time of possession.
PS: Not a real Browns fan...now get less ugly...IMMEDIATELY.
That's just a sample of what's to come. Basically, I'm pissed. I hate the Steelers, but honestly, I welcome the personal animosity. I enjoy hating my rivals. I love hating Michigan and the Pistons and the Steelers. I love hating the Tigers, Twins and any team that ends in Sox. Passion in sports is a good thing. And when both your and your rival's teams are good, passion in sports is a great thing.
