Steel, we are all happy for you, my friend. Enjoy the moment, it will be gone soon enough.
I understand the pride you feel for your favorite team. The Bengals don't have to win a Super Bowl for me to love the heck out of them.
But even if the Steelers weren't our division rivals, they would still be my very least favorite team in the entire universe because I don't like their style of football.
I don't think there is anything likable about Hines Ward, Joey Porter, Harrison- I mean, it's year after year of the same questionable hits.
Football is a physical game, but it doesn't mean you have to make unnecessary plays. The hit that Hines Ward put on Keith Rivers was one of the more unnecessary hits I've ever seen. If you want to argue it's legal, fine. But it wasn't necessary. I don't watch football for that kind of thing.
And they've done that since I was a kid, and it's why I'll never be a fan.
Anyhoo- none of that is about you. I'm thrilled for you. Just wish you had a different favorite team.
