When I was given the opportunity to comment on Pittsburgh fans, I remembered having been to Pittsburgh myself, where I enjoyed watching the Pirates play in their new stadium as the setting sun cast a beautiful glow across where the Allegheny and the Monongahela meet the Ohio, causing me to think:

"I hate the Steelers."

You see, I was raised in Dallas, I can't stand Terry Bradshaw and I know that, thanks to the Arizona Cardinals, it will soon be curtains for them.

I had a tough time pinpointing exactly who and what a Cardinals fan is. I think that is because they don't know who they are.

They have a bit of an identity crisis. The team has been in three different cities without a history of success. Arizonans are all from somewhere else.

Plus, I've never heard anyone say they're moving to the desert for the football. Allergies and arthritis, maybe. Not football.
