Absolutely! One of the best parts of being a fan. Now you have to admit Bob- in every poll out there- the Seahawks are not even close to 1) having the best fan base and 2) being America's team. You will find when you travel the country and even over seas for that matter that there are way more Steelers fans than Seahawks. Just do a search of Steeler bars in America- they are everywhere! Not to mention, here is a blurb from an article written in 2010- "There's also an exhaustive list of 1,800 Steelers bars and fan clubs from Aruba to the U.S. Virgin Islands"

Steeler fans are everywhere. No denying.

Back when the Mets were the worst team in baseball, they also had an extremely large and devoted fan base. And look at the Chicago Cubs- the perennial basement dwellers who have, it can be argued, some of the greatest fans in the sport.

Just goes to show that a team can stink and still have lots of fans. Like the Steelers, for example. Smile

So have you decided how much you want to wager yet?

Eighteen hundred Steelers bars in the Southeastern Caribbean? That's impressive!

I think they're mostly in Puerto Rico.

Ishould have thought Cuba: oppressed steel workers should appeal to a socialist/communist mentality, no?

Yeah, maybe that's one of the reasons I never got into sports!

But if you ever do, be sure to let us know so we can tell you why your team stinks! Smile

The good news is the Cubs are in mid season form. The bad news is the Cubs are in mid season form. Mr. Will is right.

Well, as I'm a New Englander, I pick my ears up when the Sports person on the news mentions either the Red Sox or the Patriots. But I don't watch any games except the Super Bowl (any excuse to watch funny commercials and eat junk food... and the commercials don't really have to be THAT good!)

But I've never cared for "talking smack." Even the "Star Wars" vs "Star Trek" people get on my nerves and I AM a sci-fi geek.

Well you don't HAVE to talk smack. But it helps if you know when people are just kidding. Smile

I am a Chiefs fan. I am hoping we defy all the odds and take the division this year. Denver has added a lot of talent in free agency, so it will be tough!

...Oh! And the Bruins (Boston) and the P-Bruins (their local farm team in Providence.) And there's the Celtics for basketball. I think that's it.

You're probably right. I don't follow sports. (me, while sports are on -> Smile)
You can't help but at least KNOW the names of the teams.
If they're not being shoved down your throat every night during the news,
you're hearing about them in ads or seeing their merchandise worn all over the place.

People get really too involved at what's supposed to be "fun?"

Yeah. Seattle will settle that with Green Bay when we play them at home in our first regular season game on September 4th. They'll get to experience the "12th Man" in person.

I confess that I do like the cheese heads, though. Just not when they play us.
