To a proud Steeler's Nation

I am sorry for I have failed you. I am not a superstitious man for the most part, unless of course it involves our six time World champion Pittsburgh Steelers. I, much like a lot of you, have my traditions, quirks and habits on game-day and this year I have failed. I only make meals that are connected to epic wins on game-day. My head must be shaved. A jersey must be worn, and worn again the following week after a win. Losing at the half? Re-shave the head. Losing at the start of the fourth? Jersey MUST be changed! Worked for years but has been woefully "below the line" this year. If our beloved Polamalu has a splash play, my dog Polamalu gets a treat.....tradition. This year has been hard for the Nation. Just good enough to offer hope, no more. Much like Bain in the last Batman..."There cannot be true suffering without hope." This is how this season has felt, for me at least. I wish everyone a good Christmas and health. Better fortunes for all of us in the Nation the next season and we get to watch the continued growth of the young guns on both sides of the ball for the next three games. At least we can sour the playoff hopes of others........
