Let's answer these one at a time.... 1) The "Stillers" is how 50% of Steeler fans in Western PA pronounces "Steelers" 2) I didn't write the copy. The ad director did. Pretty lame huh? 3) I hope the Steelers take the Jets seriously. They are a good team, don't think the Jets are just going to mail it in. 4) The Pirates have been in the tank for almost two decades and still show no signs of digging out. The Penguins, on the other hand, give rise to the slogan...Pittsburgh, City of Champions,...and the Pirates. 5) By flag desecration, I hope you mean altering of the colors, because I never meant it to be a desecration of the United States flag. Anyone who remembers me from times when I used to be a regular here can vouch for my integrity. I meant to convey the image of toughness and strength. My flag symbolizes a great deal to me. And someday, God willing, I'll get to meet Rick Monday and thank him.
