Monday Moaning 12/31/18
Today we are going to talk about football...The NFL to be specific...To be more specific, we are going to talk about a fan base that is overrun by idiots...I'm talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers...Generally I just try to ignore them...I grew up in Cleveland and in my lifetime, the Steelers have dominated the Browns and in general had a better run...Seriously, the last 30 years for the Browns has been fucking awful...
But if you come across one of these idiot Steelers fans, you'll quickly realize they have no clue when it comes to the history of the sport...If you ask them, nothing counted before 1970...They will hang their hats on the fact that their beloved team has more Super Bowl wins then any other team...6...For some reason they don't count NFL Championships...Maybe because they won nothing before 1970!
Steelers fans, you aren't the franchise with the most wins, most titles, or most championships....The Green Bay Packers have 13...The New York Giants have 8...The Chicago Bears have 9...The Patriots, Redskins, 49ers and Cowboys are on your heels with 5...Even the lowly Cleveland Browns have 4 as they were a power in the 1950's and 1960's...
But no one in the media or even in the NFL's ivory tower calls bullshit on the Steelers and their fans...Well, I'm here to say fuck you! Read the history...Stats and records are kept for reasons...One of those is to show the history of the sport...To keep a tally of the winners...To be able to reference the past...To be able to win trivia contests...Like who won the 1945 NFL Championship?
The Cleveland Rams beat the Washington Redskins 15-14 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium.....YES, the Cleveland Rams!
The history is also kept so I can say 'hey Shittsburgh, You aren't the best...As a matter of fact, you got a long way to go!
Suck my ass!
Have a week!
Happy New year!
