Today is the day. The Steelers will meet the Ravens for the 3rd time this season, but this time it means so much more. Another chance to get to a Superbowl. Another shot at a ring.
I have laid out my Roethlisberger jersey, my Terrible Towel and my hat that is exactly like Tomlin wears on the sidelines, Reebok slouch cap. To make things even more crazy, I have not washed my Roethlisberger jersey since last weekend's game and I am not going to. I am kind of superstitious I guess. Washing it might be the end to his great play. Needless to say my stinky butt will be watching the game alone today. I prefer it that way. So I can focus. I want this win, I need it. It is so hard to get to an AFC Championship game. Who knows when they could make it back again?
This is me, a fan, a fanatic of NFL football. The season is almost over and the thought of no games starting next month is already making me crazy. I live for this, plain and simple.
