'twas the night before.....

T'was the night before Tampa, when all thru the town

Steelers fans were ready for the Cardinals to go down.

The flags and banners were all hung with care,

All over Tampa, the Steelers are there.

The players were nestled, all snug in their beds,

While visions of Super Bowl danced in their heads.

With Tomlin in charge, I had no fear

And settled down for the game of the year.

When in the stadium there arose such a clatter

Cardinal's fans wondered just what was the matter

For at the stadium there was a great flash,

Someone had entered with no ticket, no cash.

The light from the moon's glow,

Gave the luster of mid-day to the man standing below.

The smoke from his cigar made the air gloomy

They knew in a moment it was Art Rooney

He held the team's roster, his plan of attack

Big Ben to Hines Ward and Willie Parker is the back.

He saw in the defense a Curtain of Steel

If they can't sack Warner then nobody will.

Troy will cover the field, he'll be everywhere

I'm telling you Cardinals you better beware

His long locks of hair will flow in the breeze

He will catch Warner's passes with the greatest of ease.

Mr. Rooney walked the sidelines, he paced to and fro

He wore black and gold from his head to his toe

terrible towel he held oh so tight

As he looked to the heavens on that Tampa night.

Then the words that he spoke left a feeling of Gold and Black

Lord, get us home to Pittsburgh with a six pack!

Well, BG.... you know I am not going to be able to leave this post alone! : )

"Twas the night after Tampa, and not even a clown
could hold back a tear for how the Steelers went down.
All the little red birds sang happily from their nests
as the Steelers limped home in need of a rest."

I passed along a bloggy award to you today. It was a great way to get some people over to see your fablulous photos too! I'm not a big football fan but will be watching for the great commercials. ; )

I can't even imagine how excited you are. I'm rooting for them just for you. I don't even watch football. LOL!
