Hey there all. Koopa extended an invite to join up here so hopefully I don't ruin his rep!
I started lurking around another Steeler site before the Super Bowl. Then I kinda stuck around. I discovered that I learned a lot about other teams in the NFL by being part of a forum in another region. I also like talking about water cooler topics on forums as well. It looks like this forum is off to a great start. So here I am.
I should go ahead and get this (the elephant in the room) out of the way. I am not one of those people who thinks the refs "stole" the Super Bowl (many of you would probably be surprised to know how rare it is to find someone out here in Seattle who is still caught up about that - we're awfully excited about the upcoming season right now). So don't expect me to be one of those opposing team fans who weakly tries to rain on your parade. Your team earned the SB victory and you fans should relish every moment you are champs. Lord knows us Seahawk fans can appreciate that championships don't fall off trees.
However, that doesn't mean I don't think we'd beat you in a rematch this year. After all, my avatar is Hawk Believer.
Anyway, I look forward to getting in on a few of the threads around here.
