So to recap, this year we have collectively (and essentially unanimously) established that not only is Die Hard the greatest Christmas movie ever, mustard is better than ketchup, a hotdog / hamburger is not a sandwich and that bacon does make everything better. However, we have some work left to do.
First off thanks to Jack Szynka #59 who happened to join BTSC just last night and Mr. Die Hard himself aka Toronto Steeler Fan who’s comment made me remember that I had been thinking about using this as a question. So in the questions below you will get an opportunity to remember some of the standing traditions at BTSC.
- With every offseason we hear the same thing from the ‘experts’ - the Steelers are in salary cap hell. But with every offseason the front office always finds a way to make it work. Do you think their approach is by design, are they essentially clueless, or are they playing it really fast and loose?
- Given all the nonsense that the national media (and to a lesser degree the local media and us fans) comes up with our beloved Steelers, I am surprised that no one has thrown out the idea of trading Ben Roethlisberger to a Super Bowl contender. I ask for your thoughts on why or why not and what you would think of the possibility.
- There has been much debate about spending a first-round draft choice on a running back. If you ‘knew’ that the kid would be an All-Pro from years 2 - 4 but be out of the league after the following season would you do it?
- What is your favourite tradition, old bit, or for lack of a better word ‘thing’ that we do at BTSC that someone who is new wouldn’t understand or would at least need some explaining to get the full effect?
- You Americans love your cheese. I mean, y’all put that stuff on everything. So, which Cheese is best? Any yes, feel free to give your opinions on different cheeses for different situations.
