"Every Nation has a Flag...Steelers Nation has the Terrible Towel" has an amazingly written article about The Terrible Towel.

For those of you out there who just "dont get it" read this :)

The towel isn't just about the Steelers, its about Pittsburgh, and what we stand for.

'Terrible' influence yields good results
By Greg Garber

TAMPA, Fla. -- Technically, Super Bowl XLIII is a home game for the Arizona Cardinals, who will wear their red jerseys for their first trip to the big show.

But Sunday, Raymond James Stadium likely will look and feel like Pittsburgh's Heinz Field. Steelers fans have descended on this city all week long in increasing, improbable numbers. The Terrible Towel, the madly twirling, swirling instrument of their passion, is likely to dominate the game.

Home or away, Steelers fans are immediately recognized by their Terrible Towels.The living legacy of the Terrible Towel lies nearly 900 miles north, just west of Pittsburgh, in the small village of Corapolis, Pa., on the banks of the Ohio River. Drive over the brick streets of the town center, up a steep hill and, finally, around a sharp turn and you will discover the Allegheny Valley School.

There are group houses scattered comfortably around what looks like a prep school campus, an achingly quiet, insular community that is home for the autistic and mentally disabled.

This is the story of how the disparate worlds of the Allegheny Valley School, where communication is often difficult, and the thunderous, full-throated ecstasy of Pittsburgh's fanatics are tied together by a common, 100 percent-cotton thread, the very fabric of Steeler Nation.

"This towel is very, very powerful," said Regis Champ, the president of the school. "The people of Pittsburgh understand what this towel does and they love the Steelers. It's a great combination for us."

The Steelers themselves are acutely aware of the power.

"I think every great nation has a flag," Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu said. "I think the Steeler Nation, it's obvious that that's our flag."

Added Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, "When they wave that towel, it's just something that comes from in their soul and tries to reach out to us players."

The Terrible Towel has evolved over 33 years into the best-known fan symbol in professional sports. According to the Steelers, more than 6 million towels have passed into the population, not to mention a myriad of related items, such as scarves, tote bags and gloves. The price is relatively modest; for $7.95 you can own a piece of history.

The most devoted Steelers fans have towels for each of the past five Super Bowls in which their team appeared. For nearly two weeks, the McArthur Towel and Sports Company of Baraboo, Wis., has been cranking out the signature towel for Super Bowl XLIII. So far, 500,000 have come out of the factory. If the Steelers win, according to president Gregg McArthur, a victory over the Cardinals would create a demand for 500,000 more.

Do the math. That's a million Terrible Towels, roughly the same number produced when the Steelers defeated Seattle in Super Bowl XL three years ago. McArthur attended the 2009 AFC Championship Game against Baltimore.

"I never experienced anything like that," McArthur said. "It was amazing. No one holds a candle to what the Steelers do with the Terrible Towel."

It's not much to look at, really. It measures only 16 by 25 inches and weighs a little more than 3 ounces, but the Terrible Towel inspires an almost irrational loyalty.

When President Barack Obama visited Pittsburgh last April, he was presented with a Terrible Towel; eight months later they were seen among the sprawling crowd at his inauguration. When Kevin Cherilla, a native of Hampton, Pa., scaled Mount Everest in 2007, he left the Sherpas behind, but not the Terrible Towel. When he shares his slide show with local schoolchildren, the shot of the towel flapping at the summit invariably draws the most applause. The Terrible Towel has appeared on "Saturday Night Live," been waved at Vatican City, the Great Wall of China and has traveled with soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After the Steelers beat the Ravens to advance to the Super Bowl, Mike Fincke celebrated. Fincke, who grew up in Emsworth, a small suburb of Pittsburgh, is the commander of NASA's Expedition 18 to the International Space Station. He looked into the camera and, in the gravity-free atmosphere high above the Earth, he unfurled his Terrible Towel and laughed.

Great things are sometimes born of desperation and the Terrible Towel is no exception.

The Steelers won their first Super Bowl at the end of the 1974 season and the following season they won 12 of 14 games and advanced to the playoffs. The brain trust at WTAE, the team's flagship radio station -- general manager Ted Atkins, sales manager Larry Garrett and broadcaster Myron Cope -- tried to come up with a gimmick that would ride the crest of the team's success.

"I said, 'I'm not a gimmick guy,'" Cope said in a December 2006 interview with ESPN. "One of them reminded me my contract was coming up for negotiation ... and I said, 'I'm a gimmick guy.'"

The first idea was a black mask in the likeness of head coach Chuck Noll embossed in gold letters with his credo, "Whatever it takes." When the local novelty manufacturer quoted a price of 50 cents per piece, the Terrible Towel quickly became Plan B.

"Larry Garrett said, 'How about a towel -- everybody has a towel,'" remembered Bill Hillgrove, who broadcasts Steelers games today on WDVE. "And Cope immediately said, 'We'll call it the Terrible Towel and it will wreak its powers terribly on the opposition.'

"He's the only guy who could have given that life."

Cope was a character. He had a vivid imagination and he hyped the Terrible Towel in the days leading up to the 1975 divisional championship game against the Baltimore Colts at Three Rivers Stadium. He raved about it on his radio shows. He talked about it as if it were alive. He tossed towels at the anchor and weatherman on the 11 o'clock news.

"The Terrible Towel is poised to strike," Cope said, over and over again. "Bring a yellow, gold or black towel to the playoff game, and if you don't have one, buy one, if you don't want to buy one, dye one."

On the day of the game, the Steelers placed two gold towels in each player's locker. They weren't impressed. Safety Mike Wagner was in the tunnel, awaiting the introduction of the defense, when his pregame concentration was interrupted.

"All of a sudden, a couple of fellows were trying, were sticking these yellow rags, these things in our hands and asking us to run on the field for introduction spinning them around," Wagner said. "We looked at the fellows and said, 'I don't think so. We're trying to play football here.'"

The Steelers of the 1970s were a no-nonsense group, cast in the stoic image of Noll and the Rooney family, which owned the team. But when the defense was introduced, an estimated 30,000 of 50,000 fans pulled out their towels and started waving them and cheering. The players were impressed, but hardly moved. But when linebacker Andy Russell returned a fumble 93 yards for a touchdown, Three Rivers became a sea of shimmering, living gold.

The following Sunday, in the AFC Championship Game against the Raiders, wide receiver Lynn Swann put the towel completely over the top when the offense was introduced at Three Rivers.

"You have to understand that we were doing things as a team and that things weren't premeditated," Swann said. "Back in the '70s there were no Sharpies in your sock and I wasn't hiding a phone in the goalpost. It was a cold day, a wet day and I didn't have a towel. I grabbed the Terrible Towel and put it in my hand, and it was almost a nervousness.

"There was no choreographed move here, and I was standing there looking up into the stands, and I had the towel in my hand, and so I just started waving the towel. And when they saw me just hitting it against my leg and they saw me waving it, then all the sudden they picked up their towels and started waving their towels."

Said Hillgrove, "When Swannie, who was one of the leaders of that team, came out with the towel, I think the others took their cues. He was the guy. When Swann said 'Let's do it,' you know, I think the fans just grabbed. And they're still grabbing."

Wagner, an old-school guy to the end, never, ever waved the towel. His punishment? He's autographed thousands of them for fans over the years. Try autographing a towel with a Sharpie -- it's not that easy.

"Myron Cope was the unique guy," Wagner said. "He always was referring to it, and he was able to do it in a way that the fans here in Pittsburgh said, 'Yes, yes, this is important to us. This is our role here. Our role is to own a Terrible Towel, to wave it at opportune times, to work its magic.'"

Cope was ecstatic over the success of the Terrible Towel, but uneasy with the perception that he was making a financial killing. He donated his portion of the proceeds to several area charities, but in 1996 he signed over his copyright to the Allegheny Valley School.

He came in, shut the door, came over and threw a sheaf of papers on my desk," remembered Champ, the school's CEO. "[He] said 'These are from my attorney. You are now the proud owner of the Terrible Towel. The Terrible Towel, it's yours, take care of it, protect it.'

"I was speechless. I immediately understood the importance of this. This was a very powerful symbol for Pittsburgh, all of Pittsburgh and he was turning it over to us."

Cope, as it turns out, had been visiting the school for years, along with his wife, Mildred, and daughter Elizabeth. The charismatic broadcaster who made a living crafting words had a son, Danny, who has never spoken a word in his life. He is autistic and for 27 years the Allegheny Valley School has been his home.

"Myron's love of his children was unsurpassed and he was so excited that he came up with the idea to donate it to the school and leave a legacy for his son," Champ said. "Not only his son, but all his son's friends and all the people we care for here at the Allegheny Valley School."

Daniel Torisky founded the Autism Society of Pittsburgh, along with Cope, with the $400 in royalties the Terrible Towel earned Cope in its first year.

"I don't want to sound preachy," Torisky said, "but [the towel is] a symbol of personal excellence, both in caring for people who are the most vulnerable citizens as well as caring for a pal who is helping you achieve an objective, like the Super Bowl.

"In the center of Pittsburgh is the Terrible Towel, believe it. This was the final meaning of his life -- talk about a legacy, pal. I believe he was aware that this would live beyond him."

Cope died last February. With snow falling outside Town Hall, more than 350 friends paid him tribute. They roared and waved the Terrible Towels that bore his name.

To date, the Allegheny Valley School has received more than $2.5 million from sales of the Terrible Towel and related merchandise.

Many major sports franchises have tried at some point to market a similar towel, but none of them has had the staying power of the Terrible Towel. Why? Exquisite timing, early in the curve of Pittsburgh's Super Bowl success. Luck. The belief of a frenzied fan base. The towel, like Dorothy's ruby slippers in "The Wizard of Oz," has no inherent magical power. It's what you bring to the towel. The Steelers' fans who wave it have an enduring optimism that something good will come of it.

And what of those who disrespect the towel? History is littered with casualties. In 2005, Cincinnati receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh wiped his feet with a Terrible Towel after scoring a touchdown. The Bengals won the game, but the Steelers extracted their revenge, beating Cincinnati in the playoffs during their road to Super Bowl XL. After Ravens receiver Derrick Mason jumped on the towel before a September 2008 matchup, Baltimore lost all three of its games against Pittsburgh. For those looking for an omen, consider this: On Monday, Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon pretended to blow his nose in the Terrible Towel and then threw it to the ground.

The Steelers' record in the 43-plus years before the towel is 230-299-20 (.435), with only four playoff victories and one Super Bowl. In the 33-plus years after the Terrible Towel was conceived it's 335-222-1 (.601), with 24 playoff victories and four Super Bowls. Pittsburgh has a chance to win an NFL-record sixth here in Tampa.

"The stadium will be moving," Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton said. "So many towels going around, you know, they're twirling in a circle motion. It's crazy."

Swann is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is an accomplished broadcaster. He was the Republican nominee for governor in Pennsylvania last year. But for some Steelers fans, he will be best remembered for bringing the Terrible Towel to life at Three Rivers Stadium.

"There is only one Terrible Towel for any team in the National Football League," Swann said. "Anyone who is waving any other color, means nothing. It's just one Terrible Towel."

I miss Myron so much this year, I wish he could be here to see this.
But I know hes watching in Heaven, whipping his Terrible Towel around and yelling

Welcome to Tampa, Mayor DamnYouHaveGotBallsNstahl!

As if the Douchbaggery of Mayor Attentionwhorenstahl changing his name for the AFC Championship game wasn't enough, now we have to add to the arrest, the celebwhoring and abuse of power and the misuse of government property and all the other unprofessional petty crap, with this...

City Sources Say There Will Be No Parade If Steelers Win Super Bowl
Wednesday, January 28, 2009 – updated: 7:18 pm EST January 28, 2009

PITTSBURGH -- City sources told Channel 11's Alan Jennings on Wednesday that if the Steelers win the Super Bowl, there won't be a parade in Pittsburgh.

Concerns are that the cost would be a budget buster and the parade would cause safety issues. The last parade drew a quarter million people into the Golden Triangle and was a public safety nightmare.

Steelers fans Jennings spoke with said there has to be a parade.

"I'm for celebrating the Steelers," said Steelers fan David Lineburg.

In 2006, the Steelers Super Bowl win was done in great fanfare. Thousands jammed Pittsburgh for the parade. Toni Gentile was there.

"I was right next to Highmark. I'll never forget it," said Gentile.

Some fans created a safety havoc by running up to the vehicles carrying the players. Crowd control was a challenge.

So let me get this right...holding a parade for the Steelers, if they were to become the FIRST TEAM IN NFL HISTORY TO WIN SIX CHAMPIONSHIP TITLES is a "budget buster"
But Mayor Luke Imawalkingjokenstahl and Dan Drinktaxoroto can head down to Tampa for the superbowl, with 2 Asshatnstahl brothers and some security jags and thats not straining the budget?

Ravenstahl taps campaign funds for Super Bowl trip
By The Tribune-Review
Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said today he will take a jet chartered by the Steelers to attend Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Fla.

Ravenstahl, 28, plans to leave Friday and return Monday. He said campaign funds — not taxpayer dollars — will be used to cover the cost of the plane ride, three days' lodging and a $1,000 ticket to the big game.

The mayor's brothers, Brad and Adam, will accompany him to the game, as will the mayor's two police security guards, who will travel separately. All costs will be covered by campaign funds, Ravenstahl said.

It's a great opportunity and a minimal expense for the amount of exposure that Pittsburgh will get," said Ravenstahl, who said he has been asked to appear on CBS and NBC's Today show while he's in Tampa.

The mayor said Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and his wife, Shelly, also will be on the chartered flight.

The Super Bowl showdown between the AFC champion Steelers and the NFC champion Arizona Cardinals will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Ravenstahl predicted the Steelers will beat the Cardinals 37-20.

"It's going to be a much higher scoring game than anybody thinks," Ravenstahl said

Whats that Mayor Pittsburghismyownpersonalplaygroundnstahl? You are using Campaign Funds for this? You say its a legitimate Campaign expense? Can you please explain how Mayor TampaisnotinPittsburghsotheyreallycantvoteforyounstahl?

I personally dont care what you think MayorDickheadnstahl. You sauntered into this job full of piss and vinegar and people, myself included, said wow, a young mayor, full of new ideas, someone to pull Pittsburgh out of the hole its been put into, how wrong I was...thanks for helping up sink a little deeper

Head on over to Mind Bling's blog, she has a few words for Mayor Clownshoenstahl too.

Why thank you, we appreciate your help sir!

Seems the Mayor of Phoenix disrespected The Terrible Towel at the Cards pep rally (18,000 fans came out to send off the Cards...over 30,000 hit Heinz Field friday night for our boys...Hmmm)

Gotta love the douchebag Cards fan with the upsidedown sign...jagoffs.

All I can say is thank you sir, thank you for not paying attention to history. Thank you for unleashing the Curse onto your team.
Please ask the Tennessee Titans and the Cincy Bungles what happens to teams who do this.

In the words of the sorely missed Myron Cope...

Hmm HA, That ain't Kosher!!

Go Steelers!

The place for smiles... giving it's employees something to smile about.

Eat 'n Park to close restaurants early on Super Bowl Sunday

Eat'n Park Restaurants will close all its locations at 3 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday, as a show of support to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Homestead-based Eat'n Park at first considered closing only its Pittsburgh-area stores, said spokesman Adam Golomb, but decided to give all its team members time to watch the game.

"It's the only day other than a major holiday that we're closing early," Golomb said. "It's a holiday in Pittsburgh."

In 2006, when the Steelers faced, and beat, the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL, Golomb said the restaurant had no sales. "We decided it wasn't the right thing for the company and for our team members to be open," he said.

The restaurants will reopen at 6 a.m. Monday Feb. 2.

Eat'n Park is close to selling out its Steelers Super Bowl pack, which includes a dozen Steeler Smiley Cookies and two Terrible Towels for $24.99. "We've done more sales in the past two weeks online as we did all of last year," Golomb said. "It's been all hands on deck, we're calling in team members to help. It's done much better than expected."

Superbowl Bound

Troysus Saves!

Corey Ivy never knew what hit him.

Penguins played yesterday and won too...
MAF showed the Steelers his support (@2:13, check out whats playing in the background too)

Looks like the NFL is out of original ideas...

NFL's plans to introduce Trophy Towel draw cries that it's a ripoff

In a Steelers-obsessed city where the fabric of society is terry cloth, a new twist on the towel will be on display at the conclusion of the American Football Conference championship game today.

The National Football League's marketing geniuses will magically produce Reebok hats and shirts, licensed and authorized by the league, for every winning player to entice fans to rush out and buy the same merchandise.

Now, for the first time, they will also hand out to players something called the Trophy Towel, a bath-sized textile in basic white. And that means a licensed NFL towel will share Heinz Field with a Pittsburgh original, the gold cloth with the global reach that has been twirled for more than 30 years by the Steelers faithful.

Yoi and double yoi.

The new product retails for $24.99 and -- at 24 inches by 42 inches -- may be too big to wave. The NFL does not believe that it will siphon sales from the Terrible Towel, which costs about $6, with the proceeds going to charity.

"We're well aware of Steeler history," said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. "We think it will add to the celebration and give fans another way of sharing in their team's accomplishments. We'll test it out."

The official marketing kicks off at the Super Bowl, with the NFL to air a commercial on NBC promoting the Trophy Towel. About 50,000 or so will be available at and retailers such as Dick's Sporting Goods, JCPenney and Kohl's.

To give customers a glimpse of them -- and the NFL hasn't released images yet -- a smaller number have been made for the AFC and National Football Conference champions. They will be brought out today in Glendale, Ariz., and then Pittsburgh, where passions have long been terribly fanned by The Towel.

The Terrible Towel is a symbol, and, like all symbols, it is profoundly personal for many Steelers fans. Described as the perfect blend of color and motion, it is tough, ubiquitous, resilient to abuse, utilitarian, portable and the most recognized fan accessory in the world of sports. This being Pittsburgh, a towel-come-lately is sure to evoke strong passions.
Steelers Nation symbol

Bill Hillgrove and Andy Russell had special relationships with Myron Cope, the Steelers radio color commentator and inventor of the Terrible Towel, who died 11 months ago. The former is offended by an idea that he thinks is, well, terribly crass; the latter holds to the principle that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery; others think it's downright, um, terrible. And the unanswered question is whether the NFL would throw in with the idea if the creator of the Terrible Towel were still alive.

"I think he would be insulted. It's a shame," said Mr. Hillgrove. "The towel had magic with Myron, and it's become a symbol of the Steeler Nation. Fans know their money is going to charity, and now this one is being sold for profit. I have an ethical problem with that.

"Like all the other towels that have surfaced out there, it's a cheap imitation," he added. "I think it's a dumb idea. It's a ripoff. A copycat."

Mr. Russell, who was present at the creation as captain of the Steelers when the towel was introduced at a playoff game in 1975, sees it differently.

"I think he'd be proud that his legacy is still growing after his death," he said. "It may seem like they're cherry-picking Myron's patent, but the NFL has been very smart about the way it promotes the game. It's hard to argue with their decisions."

The original concept of a towel did not appeal to Mr. Russell. But in that playoff game against the Colts, the lumbering linebacker set a record that still stands with his 93-yard return of a fumble for a touchdown, towels all aflutter.

"It's kind of embarrassing for me," he said with a self-deprecating chuckle. "I told him I thought it was a gimmick, and the Steelers aren't a gimmick team.

"But when you see all those towels waving in the stadium now, and all those towels displayed at bars around the country and around the globe, it's safe to say I was wrong."
The Terrible Towel's legacy

In triumph and in tears, the towel has waved its way into the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, along with its creator. It has been twirled by active and retired players, punctuating parades and serving as proof of citizenship for tribal members in other cities. It gave Mr. Cope a sendoff at his funeral, and it has been buried with mayors.

But its greatest contribution has been to improve the quality of life for children and adults with intellectual development disabilities through the Allegheny Valley School, where Mr. Cope's son has been a resident since 1982.

Mr. Cope turned over the trademark to the school in 1996. Since then, the cash cow towel and its satellite products have generated $2.2 million for the school, including $1 million the year the Steelers won Super Bowl XL.

Given that kind of validity and support, nothing can displace its legacy, said Regis Champ, president and chief executive officer of Allegheny Valley School.

"The Terrible Towel has been around for decades," he said. "Nothing can replace an original. The Terrible Towel rules."

The Trophy Towel is manufactured by Wisconsin-based McArthur Towel and Sports, which was already licensed to make the Terrible Towel and the later Green Bay version, Title Towel.

Company officials did not return telephone calls to request comment. But president Gregg McArthur told the SportsBusiness Journal, which first reported on the championship towels: "[The towel] has always been a great vehicle in sports. Anyone at Gatorade can tell you that. We're taking the next step by turning them into an authentic championship item."

It seems that, all of a sudden, the NFL is awash in towels. Blue ones that said "This Is Our House" were handed out before last weekend's game at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., where the home team Titans were defeated by the Ravens.

Just a few weeks earlier, the Titans did a Tennessee two-step on a Terrible Towel. Subsequently, they were shut out and then eliminated, and home field advantage was in the hands of the Steelers. 'There's only one'

At the Steelers' practice facility, printed on a grease board were these two thoughts: "Win!! Because going home is NOT an option," and "Whoever told you winning isn't everything lied to you."

Nobody has seen the NFL's towel, but at a time when even the NFL with all its billions has a budget shortfall and is laying off people, defensive lineman Chris Hoke saw no threat in the newcomer.

"In this economy, anything to make money, right? It's a money-making scheme," he said. "People aren't going to wave this towel. It's too big to wave."

And the chances of any Steelers waving the white towel?

"It won't happen," Mr. Hoke said firmly. "There's only one towel."

Just a taste...

I'm babysitting for my Brother till Tuesday, and even though he thinks he gave me the right password for his wireless, he did not.


The pictures from the Pens game on Wednesday (1/14) will go up soonish.

What else.

I got rear ended that same night. Baaaaaaad road conditions and the guy behind me on the Blvd of the Allies either didn't or couldn't stop and hit me while I was creeping (with my turn signal on!) trying to merge onto 579.\
Minor damage, really. But its the point. Roads are BAD. SLOW DOWN AND KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE CAR IN FRONT YOU!!! A working knowledge of physics is also good if you wanna drive.
My back hurts, not in an OMG I HAVE OT SEE A DOCTOR kind of way, just sore.

I got a new phone. Nothing special, just what I wanted ( camera, music) for what I could afford and what they were offering (FREE!) but the texting is QWERTY and not the ABC I'm so used to. It's like learning the language all over again lol.

I took Elise (3years old) to Blade Runners tonight for her Tot Ice Skating class. Wow.
Total Controlled Chaos.
She fell, and cried, but we had a talk that involved a promise of ice cream and she eventually let the very nice and lovely Jessica take her back out onto the ice. Like a true Pens fan she repeated more than once "I dont wanna skate I wanna pway HOCKEY!" sweet, cuddly, loveble, innocent Lyds is turning into a Terrible Two Monster.
She mainly says 2 words now.
and Diego!

Steeler game Sunday.
I hope Ray Lewis doesn't shoot anyone.

Final Thought:
