ANYONE But the Steelers.

I think it's a pretty well know fact that I live for football season. My heart belongs to the Florida Gators. Even though they are good enough to play in the NFL Superbowl, alas, they aren't a recognized  pansy "professional" (and I use that term loosely) team. Brent has a unhealthy obsession with the Dallas Cowboys, but since they blew it and crushed our dreams gave it their best shot, they still didn't make it to the Superbowl. And since you can't watch the game without having a team to root for, we have decided to go with the Packers. So, for the next eight hours, the Clark household has devoted itself to being die hard cheese heads.  

Let me explain our reasoning to you.  It's not that we have followed the Packers or are proud life long fans, because let's be honest...we didn't love Favre. Out with the old and in with the new... and we think Aaron Rodgers is a stud. 

 Our biggest deciding factor: ANYONE but the Steelers. 

In a school just outside Pittsburgh, a first grade teacher Explained to her class that she is a Steelers Fan. She asked her students to raise their hands if they are Steelers fans too.

Not really knowing what a Steelers fan is, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands all fly into the air with one exception. 

A little boy named Timmy has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks him why he has decided to be different. "Because I am not a Steelers fan." says Timmy. The teacher asks "Then what are you?" 

Timmy says "I am a proud Green Bay Packers fan!" The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Timmy why he is a Green Bay fan. 

"Well, my Mom and Dad are Packers fans so I'm a Packers fan, too." Timmy responds. 

The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your Mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot? Then what would you be?"

Timmy smiled and said, "Then I'd be a Steelers fan."

Happy SUPERBOWL everyone! :)


  1. Ha! Love the joke at the end! Today I will be sitting in my house NOT watching the Super Bowl. Tomorrow I will watch every commercial over the internet and that is all I need! ;)

  2. wahaha I love that joke. Awesome. We don't have any loyalty to either team but decided to also cheer for the Packers ... why? because Maddox loves cheese. He liked seeing people wearing cheese hats lol
