A little bit of fun for Pittsburgh Steelers fan to get all psyched up for Super Bowl XLIII. I did not write this! My friend Akirah found it and sent it my way (so go thank  her!) She is the biggest Steelers fan I know. Well, okay, she is the only Steelers fan I know! My friends all like the Giants, Jets or Patriots! I’ve seen it on a couple different sites but the one I like best was here at Random Thoughts

‘Twas the Night Before Tampa

‘Twas the night before Tampa, when all through the town,

Steeler’s fans were ready for the Cardinals to go down;

The flags and banners were all hung with care,

All over Tampa, with the Steelers there;


The players were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of the Super Bowl danced in their heads;

With Tomlin in charge, I had a night cap,

And settled down for one more night’s nap;

When down at Tampa there arose such a clatter,

Cardinals fans wondered just what was the matter;


For at the stadium there was a great flash,

Someone had entered with no ticket, not any cash;

The moon on the breast of the grass and the sand,

Gave the luster of mid-day to the man with a towel in his hand;

When what to their wondering eyes should appear,

Who this man was, it became quite clear;

The smoke from his cigar made the air gloomy,

But they knew in a moment that it was Art Rooney;


He held the team roster, the plan of attack,

Big Ben to Hines Ward or Fast Willie in 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’ll snatch Kurt’s passes with the greatest of ease;

Pittsburgh Steelers

Mr. Rooney walked the sideline; he paced to and fro,

He wore white and gold from his head to his toe;

A terrible towel he held oh so tight,

As he looked to the heavens on that warm Tampa night;

Then the words that he spoke made us want to sing:

“Lord get us a win for Pittsburgh and me another ring!”


Don’t worry, I’ll totally be giving the same lovin to the Cards! For more fun things about the two teams see my inspiration series and Dream Big
