I didn’t think being a Steelers fan sucked that bad, but then I did a little research. Here are the three saddest facts I found.
1. They have a 4-5 record.
2. Their mascot is named “Steely McBeam” and he is a caricatured steelworker who looks like the top to Purdue Pete’s bottom.
3. They just lost a heartbreaker to Dallas courtesy of a game-winning TD at the hands (and feet) of Zeke.
Apparently that third one put one Steelers fan (and family man) over the edge this past weekend.
Ever heard the saying “don’t shoot the messenger?” Because if you smash your television with a baseball bat because you’re mad at something you just saw on it, that’s exactly what you’re doing. Should you kick an airline worker in the teeth because they just informed you your flight has been delayed five hours? No. Should you hoist your doctor by the nards because he just told you that you have pubic lice? No. Should you shove your entire fist up that same doctor’s rectum after he lets you know that your pubic lice themselves have gonorrhea and he refers to you as a “walking, talking, STD-ridden sleezebag?” Maybe; it all depends on his tone. But there are zero circumstances in which you should lay a finger on your poor, defenseless Vizio. Not even if a rerun of the last episode of The Sopranos is on. Not ever.
And to this guy’s wife: maybe take the kids and go stay at your sister’s until the offseason. Or, better yet, just never come back..
