NFL football lovin' mamas! - Page 5

post #81 of 250
See now, you learn something every day! Who knew we had such a bad boy? I guess I try to ignore the trash talk since we get so much of it

In other news, I won my fantasy this week-phew! How'd everyone else do?
post #82 of 250
As terrible as the Hawks (and the entire NFC West) were last week, I'm looking forward to the first home game tomorrow (we have season tickets). I wear a Trufant jersey and the weather's supposed to be gorgeous. Nothing like sitting in our seats in the sunshine looking out on Elliot Bay. (Of course, it's more fun when they win, but DH and I will enjoy our day together either way--kiddos will have a blast at SIL's)

oh yay!!! I love football -- go 49ers and KC -- you guessed it -- a Joe Montana fan -- almost named one of my daughters Montana, but her dad is a Cowboys (booooo!) fan... lol

I keep waiting for my 49ers to get back on track and judging by last week, it doesn't look like it's going to be this year

yay football!!!

Yeahhhh... did you see this tackle? I love Polomalu, though. He's so... soft-spoken and loves his dogs. Hehe.

Oh well, sweetie - they spend more time in my presence than yours and they will love my boys as much as me. So there! I even taught my older DD (when she was learning to speak) to say "Go Steelers!" I think my dad cried when he heard her! Now whenever she sees football on TV, she cheers for our boys. Warms my heart. :
I have already located all the newborn Steelers gear on the merchandise website and put my name on the waiting list for season tickets so that when we do manage to have children, we can drag them to the games. They put something in the water in Pittsburgh that makes you like the Steelers, but we're stuck here in Michigan so I'm going to have to use some other means of indoctrination.

We don't get most of the games here (instead they think we want to watch the Browns, God forbid) so we go to a bar in Ann Arbor that has a Steeler Nation branch - all these displaced Pittsburghers screaming at big-screen TVs. It's pretty awesome. If you can't get the games you should search for a Steeler Nation branch near you, because it's so much fun. Kinda makes me wish I were eating a hamburger at Tessaro's though.

GO STEELERS!

it's rough not having most of the steelers games broadcast out here (darn west coast!), but we just found a local sports bar owned by a guy who used to live in canonsburg, pa and is a die hard fan : we're hoping we can recruit some friends to join us for games, because it would be nice if we weren't the only ones wearing ward and parker jerseys while screaming and twirling our terrible towels... now if only we could get some pittsburgh beers out here. i'm also planning to try to convince the bar owner to put pierogies, kielbasa, and haluski on the menu for game days :

binkin, funny you should mention the steelers baby gear... i recently learned how to knit wool soakers and of course had to make the 1st one out of black & gold yarn!

portland is great, but football season sure reminds me where my heart is
post #88 of 250
pittnurse08, I totally agree. Pittsburgh will always be home for me. I really hope we can move back someday, agh. Football season makes my heart hurt.

Also I am rofl at the pierogies, kielbasa, and haluski. Most people here (DH included, until I told him) have never eaten a pierogie or heard of haluski at all. Seriously, guys, we're not THAT far from Chicago. Yeesh.

Hm, I should try to make this about football again yeah? My tradition before we moved was to hop a bus down to the Strip and get a fish sandwich at Wholey's on game days. This helped the Steelers to win the Superbowl.

Miss Pittsburgh? Listen to Pants N'at!

I think Montana would be an AWESOME name for a girl! Your DH doesn't know what he's missing.

I do remember that tackle! I do like how soft spoken he is too. I should find out is SD has a Viking bar! I know they have a Bears bar, so I could go down there for two games when the Vikes play the Bears, but other than that I'm SOL. Something to Google later...

So both my teams need to redeem themselves this week! Chargers @Denver, and Vikes play at home vs the Colts.

I don't get to watch the Viking game : (I have to watch the Raiders and Chiefs), so I'll have to check often the play by plays online.

GO BOLTS AND VIKES!!!

As DH says (who has been a suffering Radiers fan for years) Nothing will change until Al Davis finally dies...he won't give anyone the control to build a good team!

I have to agree with your DH! It's hard to build up a great team with someone as controlling as he is and all the coach turnover as a result.

I'm also a Chiefs fan. What is happening today? Ugh.

Also a fan of ds's. :

My dad is a Vikings fan and my stepdad is a Vikings fan.

Argh, Bears what were you doing the second half? Why did you suck so much and lose? Why do you do this to me? I even had my lucky 2006 conference champs jersey on
post #95 of 250
GRRRR What the heck happened with the Chiefs?!

Okay, next game, Broncos are on!

That's at the refs in Denver. The Chargers should have won that game, if it wasn't for the ref that screwed them with the incomplete pass call. For that matter, both that call and the call they got wrong in the 1st quarter. It just sucks.
