Super Steelers…Super Win…Super Bowl!

Download Audio


     How ‘bout them Stillers!  Last Sunday evening our beloved black ‘n gold pulled off one of their patented fourth quarter comebacks to defeat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in Super Bowl XLIII at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.  It was their 6th Super Bowl win, more than any other NFL team and six more than 15 of the league’s 32 teams!


     It was the culmination of one of the most exciting seasons in Steeler history and it was a tribute to the players, the coaching staff, the management and all the intrepid fans who hung in there all season long, supporting the team at every turn;  that is, all the fans who behaved themselves before, during, and after one of the greatest Super Bowls ever!  There certainly was more than justification for jubilation in Pittsburgh and throughout Steelers Nation!


     And, as expected, with all the excitement and reasons to celebrate, thousand of people, deliriously happy, flooded out of bars and residences on the South Side, Oakland,
Downtown, and the North Shore and went hog-wild.  Many of them were fortified with an abundance of beer and other alcoholic beverages which further fueled their enthusiasm.


     Unfortunately, there was one blemish on Sunday’s Super Bowl night.  The hooligan element took over in some places and turned the celebration into a night of irresponsible, reckless be behavior.  Despite a precautionary staffing of police, some fires were set; windows were broken; cars were spray painted and at least 40 people were arrested and several injuries were reported.


     But in spite of these troublemakers, the vast majority of fans celebrated in a sensible way and for that we congratulate the police and other security personnel who did an admirable job of keeping the fun and frivolity under control.


     And now, with the Super Bowl Steelers coveting yet another Lombardi Trophy, we can all look forward to a number 7 Super Bowl win a year from now.  So, after a few months rest and relaxation, it’ll be time again for our exhortation…


     Here we go Steelers…here we go…all the way the 7th heaven!
