AFC Championship Game: 23-14 (W)  

Here we go, Steelers, here we go...

Let Polamalu's fourth-quarter pick-six hereby be known as The Pittsburgh Miracle.

Get well soon, Willis!

I can hear the fireworks from my apartment. I know everyone else in the world will be cheering for the Cards. I don't care. I love my black and gold, always have, always will. This season, we were dealt the hardest regular season schedule in two decades. We thought we'd probably go 8-8, 10-6 if we were lucky. Instead, we went 12-4, and surpassed all the "to beat" teams in the League.

We're the Steelers, we're the real deal. And now, we might be the first team to Number Six!!

Stay strong, D- and get your feet back under you, O!

I normally don't care about sports, but for you, I sincerely hope that the Steelers take home a nice big fat Bowl ring. :D

Thanks! Never dreamed we might go all the way this year. Still not a done deal, but I'm thrilled to get this far!

I have to work early tomorrow, but I'm afraid I won't be getting to sleep for the next, oh, couple o' YEARS here... *bouncebouncebounce*

My Dad reckons he heard Mum and me screaming, when Troy intercepted that ball, from oh about 16 miles away! lol He was just leaving work and had the game on the radio when Troy made the interception/touch down. He was right. Mum and I were screaming like banshees in this house!

I prayed a lot! We made halupki for dinner tonight. I must have tossed about half a container of salt over my shoulder. And my voice is a bit iffy and I am bruised from crossing myself repeatedly and muttering 'please God, The Chief, and Myron..'

I do hope Willis is okay and it's just one hell of a concussion. Shite I even prayed for him after that play.

now to nag for sure about that icon...

Oh man, I squealed like a stuck pig when Troy got that TD- the one he was robbed of earlier in the season! I live in an apartment building, so that's not the most considerate thing, but I couldn't help myself. My family promptly called so that we could squeal together over the telephone.

Besides, we've been playing the fight song for hours, and hearing chants of "PITTSBURGH'S GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL" pretty consistently from downstairs...

I was in Albany in 2005, so I missed all the fun around Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl run-up, and all the fun afterward. I'm going to savor the run-up this year, and if we're lucky enough to win, I wanna go to the victory parade! =D

Ha! At least you're in Steeler Country! The neighbours are probably going just as mad with glee as you are. I'm in Raider turf...with Dallas fans next door. We heard a good natured 'shut up already.'

Dude you end up going to the victory parade I want bloody pics and loads of them!!!!
Miusheri: steeler_dorkmiusheri on January 19th, 2009 04:38 am (UTC)
Yikes! I don't think it's anything you realistically need to worry about, but could you imagine the carnage wrought by their fans if the Raiders made it to the big game? ^_^*

Oh yes, there will be parade pics if we're all that fortunate! My sister grabbed me some from the last parade, I can dig them up if you're interested.

(I'll probably be making several Steelers posts in the run-up to the Super Bowl...)

I was here when the Raiders got in last time and lost to the Bucs...It weren't pretty.

We got Superbowl pics a few years back from some cousins...I'm related to the bunch behind the ZERO TOLERANCE movement. ^^ They couldn't make the victory parade for some reason...or at least the ones who did, didn't share pics...arseholes. =p

(and I'll be replying to them with glee!)

Please, as if I'd be cheering for the Cards. Sister solidarity; go Steelers!

Thank you, little sis! We'll do our best to avenge Philly!
