    When I was a kid growing up in Cleveland Browns territory, about halfway towards Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Steelers were our mortal enemies. Then when I went to grad school, I shared an apartment with a guy from Pittsburgh, and we had a lot of fun when Browns/Steelers games turned up on TV. Now I'm happy to root for Pittsburgh, except when they play the Browns, of course.

    Meh, Green Bay....

    ....But I predict Betty White will be the real winner.
     
  6. Lets see if the refs play favorites with the Stealers, again.

  9. Packers through and through. I grew up in GB. Wasn't a big fan growing up, but not having the crazy green and gold EVERYWHERE makes me miss home. So I watch and root for them now. Plus, if I rooted for another team, my family may never speak to me again.
     
  10. I'm excited for Puppy Bowl! I have all kinds of special food prepared, mostly featuring the hot dog and kibble type foods.

    Anyone who picks the steelers will be banned :D
     
  12. Steelers will win. Their defense is relentless. Rodgers is great but he just isnt the same after he takes a big hit (which will happen early and often). And Ben is a winner. 24-20 Steelers. Ben hits Mike Wallace with :49 left. You heard it here first.
     
  13. Crap. Im sorry greg! I typed that before you posted. I swear! Well I guess this is goodbye...
     
  14. Did you know Chase Blackburn, the linebacker for the NY Giants has a degree in Mathematics?
     
  15. It's probably not a good thing to be able to calculate your odds of getting a concussion on any specific play

    When I was a kid in the 1960s, my parents and I took a vacation road trip up through Michigan and the U.P., and down through Wisconsin to Chicago where my father had an army reunion. My father and I thought it worth stopping in Green Bay to get a picture of the stadium.

    This is the reason I'm rooting for the Packers. I'm a Seahawks fan, and watching the refs hate on the Hawks just turned me against the Stealers.
     
  18. The refs did a number on the Ravens against the Steelers their last meeting. A phantom holding call on a punt return for a touchdown, and then calling a defensive holding on what would have been a failed 3rd down attempt by Pittsburgh when it was the offense that was holding resulted in an 8 point swing in what ended up as a 7 point game.

    Good, the Steelers deserved it.
     
  20. I'm not a Big Ben fan and I like Aaron Rodgers. Go cheeseheads!

    My stepmom and step brothers and sisters used to live next door to Bob Skoronski, so I have to root for the Packers.

    Well, except when they played the Broncos.
