Zambia Thanks The Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl championship merchandise

You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?

It all gets shipped to some third-world country.

While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.

The Empire State Building Goes Green And Gold

Empire State Building

As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the north and south sides in green and gold and the east […]

And We’re Back!

Super Bowl XLV

It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated. In my case, a little too long. Yesterday’s hangover was brutal. It was also the best hangover I’ve ever had. Hell, I might […]

Lombardi Trophy Comes Home

Nick Collins

In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame another spate of injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home. It was an amazing game from the start. The Packers dominated the first half, scoring two […]

McCarthy: Sunday Is Our Night

Mike McCarthy

Confidence instills confidence. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is supremely confident about this game and I suspect his team is too. After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice for our game plan, so we’re ready to go. The one thing you want to […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Steelers

Aaron Rodgers

Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]

Pouncey Confirmed Out

Maurkice Pouncey

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted he had a 75 percent chance of playing Sunday. He didn’t practice on Friday, which […]

Here’s The Gayest Thing You’ll See All Day

Actually, I take that back. Calling this gay is an insult to my homosexual friends. This is something else entirely. It’s lame. It’s loserish. It’s a sign this guy is never getting laid for the rest of his life, unless he runs into a 300-pound hillbilly with five teeth from West Virginia. They like the […]

Remember That Super Bowl Ticket Contest? A Homeless Couple Won

Dallas Super Bowl Ticket Hunt

If you recall, last Friday and Saturday we helped with a Super Bowl ticket giveaway by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau. The objective of the contest for participants was to find a mystery man roaming the streets of Green Bay. The winner received two tickets to see the Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh […]

In Taiwan, They Think Roethlisberger Has A Clock For A Penis And Favre Has A Gun

Here’s another video animation from those crazy bastards at Next Media Animation. This time, they’re apparently trying to describe the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and the Super Bowl to a nation that cares little about it. They’ve spiced things up by including a naked Ben Roethlisberger, who not only gets caged and Tasered, but […]

While Roethlisberger Is Out Boozing, Rodgers Is Watching Film

Aaron Rodgers

Does anyone else feel like the first-time Super Bowl jitters do not apply to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers? There’s all kinds of evidence to suggest the Super Bowl-experienced signal caller has an advantage over a guy making his first appearance in the game, but Rodgers has always been unflappable, whether it be dealing […]

Seven Questions (And Answers) About The Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger

In case you haven’t heard, the Green Bay Packers are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to trade a little info on our respective teams with Chris at Nice Pick, Cowher, one of the best Steelers blogs we’ve seen. And yes, I chose seven questions […]

Packers Seem Likely To Lose One Defensive Coach At Most

The names of several Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been flying around as candidates for the various defensive coordinator openings around the league, but it’s now looking less likely the Packers staff will be purged. On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the four teams with an opening, hired Juan Castillo, their own offensive […]

No One Likes Ben Roethlisberger And Republicans Like The Packers

Ben Roethlisberger

Maybe it’s his stupid, fat face. Maybe it’s his plodding style of play. Maybe it’s because he’s a rapist. Whatever it is, no one like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That is, at least according to a poll set to be published in the Hollywood Reporter. The poll, conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, showed Roesthlisberger […]

This Is How The Steelers Prepare For The Super Bowl

Hines Ward

Hey, they’ve been in the Super Bowl a few times in recent years, so maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t need to worry about the usual distractions. Maybe they have their own way of preparing. I’m sure if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t engaged, he’d be out boozing and trying to rape hook up with some local […]

Troy Polamalu Says Troy Polamalu Didn’t Deserve DPOY Award

Troy Polamalu

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award by two votes over Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, but Polamalu says he doesn’t deserve the award. After he won the award, Polamalu turned to Twitter with these words. Thanks for the congrats. @jharrison9292 @ClayMatthews52 Ed Reed Julius Peppers way […]

Matthews Is NOT Defensive Player Of The Year

Clay Matthews

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews finished second to Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu in the NFL Defensive Player of the Year vote. The award, voted on by the Associated Press, is the NFL’s official award. Early reports from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bob Glauber of Newsday and your own Green Bay […]

Here’s One Reason To Be Optimistic About Sunday

Aaron Rodgers

We haven’t talked a lot about the Pittsburgh Steelers, particularly in a negative light. That’s because the Pittsburgh Steelers scare me. More than the Philadelphia Eagles, more than the Atlanta Falcons and certainly more than the Chicago Bears. Coming into the playoffs, I thought there were two teams who could give the Green Bay Packers […]

Jeremy Piven Does Not Like Your Super Bowl Matchup

Jeremy Piven, of Entourage fame, doesn’t like anything about this year’s Super Bowl matchup. Piven was looking for a New York Jets-Chicago Bears game for, who knows why. Probably because he sucks. There honestly couldn’t have been a shittier Super Bowl matchup than that. Anyway, Piven voiced his displeasure over the Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers […]

The Terrible Towel vs. The Titletown Towel

Titletown Towel

One my idiot friends who’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fan alerted me to the controversy surrounding the newly-released Titletown Towel. Why is there controversy? Well, Steelers fans feel ripped off because, you know, THEY WAVE TOWELS AT THE GAME, GODDAMMIT! That’s right, Steelers fans wave towels at the games because they don’t know how to cheer […]
