kick some money to the Allegheny Valley School(a school for hanicapped kids) they get the proceeds of the sales from the real Terrible Towels that Steeler fans buy and take to the games they are not give aways like the crappy rags teams have been handing out the past year.

So, you propose they donate a percentage of sales from giveaways?

When would you try to think that a small towel, the size of a golf bag towel is a trademark? If so, then would Fortune Brands (marketer it "Titleist") or any golf company call a trump card over the Steelers or the makers of the towel. That is unless they trademarked teh size of the towel.

During the late 70's or even early 80's when the NBA was unwatchable, Spurs fans had a give away called "The Horrible Hankie". Just becaust it is people in a certain area make it prominent to the media does not make it theris. If this is the case, the Steelers, or the AVS should give money to all European soocer teams since towels/scarfs whould also be considered intellectual property. Get real!

For those non-Steeler fans: Q-How many Steeler fans dos it take to change a lightbulb?

A- Five. One to change the blub; the other four need to tell you how great they were in the 1970's.

My understanding is that Myron Cope, who was the Steeler's announcer for so long, thought up the idea of the Terrible Towel way back in the 70's. And that blurb about the lightbulb thing--that was funny. It also might very well be true, since so many people around here seem STUCK in that time period...and last year's squad warped them right back into that time capsule. But oh well, I'll digress for now...3 December is still over a month away...

But yeah--figured I'd throw out the blurb about Myron Cope and the Terrible Towel. Dude's name is even OT the towel...take a look at one and you'll see.

That's funny but it's hardly realistic. Who's going to believe there is actually a Steeler fan out there with the mental capacity to change a light bulb? :D

Correct - Myron Cope is the brainchild behind the Terrible Towel. Which is fascinating if you've ever actually heard him do a Steeler game. He's retired now, but man, if you heard him once, you'd never forget it.

Western Pennsylvania's (i.e., not Pittsburgh itself, but everywhere around it) stuck in about, oh, 1980. When I lived there they were in the early 70's but have progressed considerably. :D
