Cue the lawyers

They'll have a field day with this story.

Steelers? Isn't that a gang?

Just when you think stupid people have reached their peak, someone even dumber comes along.

Not even Palin is that dumb. :)

Reminds me of those high school kids in Calif that were sent home a couple years back for wearing a shirt with an American flag on the day the school was appreciating Mexico's independence day.

Hmmmm this all sounds vaguely familiar:


A lot of Steeler hatred in this country?

Heh. Flashbacks to Dallas circa 1994. I lived literally down the street from the grocery store that fired one of its clerks for daring to refuse to wear a Dallas Cowboys jersey one Sunday. (He got an invite to talk to David Letterman, and the anal retentive manager took a lot of grief, from me included, for being such a jerk.) At the same time, I was working for ITT Hartford in its worker's comp division, and we all got the same ultimatum: come in with Cowboys gear or don't bother coming in.

Of course, that was when everyone was going nuts over the Cowboys winning two Superbowls in a row, and every beer-gutted dolt in the state was talking about a football "dynasty". That said, it just cemented the impression that The People In Charge were thin-skinned gimps who thought that a Cowboys-only casual day was some kind of reward. The good news is that for the last fifteen years or so, we've kinda shut up about Cowboys Pride for obvious reasons. (As one of the great philosophers of the Twentieth Century said, "I don't want you goin' to Dallas at all. That place is crawlin' with crackheads and debutantes, and half of 'em play for the Cowboys.")
