    The Terrible Towel and why the Steelers need to win the Super Bowl this

    THIS IS AN EMAIL I JUST GOT FROM A STEELER FRIEND OF MINE!!

    Members of the Steeler Nation know all too well the story of the
    Terrible Towel. It was a brainchild of beloved and dearly departed
    Myron Cope during the Noll Dynasty. The magic of the towel lasted beyond
    the retirement of Chuck Noll, maintained its staying power throughout
    the entire Cowher age, and is still going strong in the early years of
    the Tomlin era.

    The towels are manufactured in Wisconsin by Chippewa River Industries.
    Proceeds from the sale of the towels benefit Chippewa, which employs the
    mentally disabled, and helps to pay for their care. Myron Cope also
    collected royalties and donated all of them to the Allegheny Valley
    School, a special needs place where his autistic son is a resident.
    Before he died, Cope bequeathed the Towel rights to the school, ensuring
    proper care for his son and for many others.

    What you may not know is that greed has found its way in to this
    benevolent endeavor. The NFL is quietly working on a promotion to
    produce larger towels for every other team in the league besides the
    Steelers. They plan to unveil this gimmick after the conference
    championships this week and push it through the super bowl. The plan is
    to market these towels and capture the enthusiasm of the super bowl
    contestants. To get things moving, free towels were handed out at every
    stadium during the divisional playoffs this week.

    You may have seen the Tennessee fans waving those powder blue things.
    Of course, they would not have brought their own. Did anyone notice
    the complete backfire? All the home teams lost EXCEPT the Steelers!
    This is why the Steelers need to win the Superbowl. The sanctity of the
    Terrible Towel must be preserved!

    Also of note:
    After the 2005 season members of the Cincinnati Bengals, AFC North
    division champs, stomped all over the Terrible Towel before their
    playoff game with the wild card Steelers. The Bengals still have not
    recovered from their loss that day. The Steelers went on to win their
    Fifth Super Bowl.

    On Dec. 21, 2008 members of the Titans stomped on the towel. Three
    weeks later, the Titans took an early dismissal from the playoffs. Early
    on in that game with the Ravens, many fans were waving their freebie
    blue towels marked TITANS! Later, as the rain began to fall, and it got
    colder, they put the towels on their necks to stay warm. Appropriately,
    as the game went on, their necks began to TIGHTEN! And their team
    choked.

    If the Steelers win the Superbowl this year, they will have to win two
    games against teams named after birds. Then the opposing fans can use
    their new towels to clean up all the bird S&%#. Also, a Steeler
    Super Bowl victory will make the sacrilegious theft of the spirit of
    the Terrible Towel the worst marketing idea since the NFL network!

    GO STEELERS !
    Send this to every Steeler fan you know!

    THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS.....DON'T F*CK WITH OUR TERRIBLE TOWEL!!!

    I saw Ed Reed cleaning his *** and feet on U-tube with the Terible Towel as well. Also, Ray Lewis was seen walking around some crack infested neighborhood using only the Terible Towel to cover himself (twig & berries) as he staggered naked from crack house to crack house. I guess we know whats coming to those bastards.....

    Yes, the NFL's statements that their hope that the towels would co-exist in harmony were ridiculous. If anybody has a way to spread the word that the players should refuse to accept these phony iminations outright, please do! I don't know it that would be the "classy" thing that the Rooneys would want, but I think a simple "No thanks, we've already got one" wouldn't hurt anyone.

    let them make their towels. If those towels are only created to counteract the affect that the Terrible Towel has it is a meaningless gesture.

    Long Live the Terrible Towel

    I know the NFL was making an effort to get these out during the Conference Championship games and I saw some of the Cardinals fans and players with them... did they have them at the Steelers game too or were they handing out TT's at the door?

    One thing that seperates us from everybody else is that people buy the Towels and the team doesn't make anything off them. Everywhere else they are free (usually with a big sponsor's logo on it) or somebody (**cough*NFL) is making money off of it. If the NFL has any sense left at all, they will not push this joke against the Terrible Towel.
