We Win!

In case you missed the news, we won Super Bowl #45. It was in the paper.

[And when I say "we", I mean the Packers. In the time-honored tradition of sports fans everywhere, when the team we cheer wins, then "they" join "us" to become "we". When they lose, then they stay "they".] 

The Super Bowl outcome garners somewhat more subdued coverage in Pittsburgh. "Game? What game? Did the Steelers play??" The Post-Gazette, however, features proper amounts of despair.

It may seem harsh to pick on Steeler fans now, but this is hilarious. And it turns out that Stiller fans talk funnier than Packers fans. Pittsburghese is so messed up it has become a subject of academia.

Yinz guys give dem Stillers fans a hard time but it's all a bunch of jumbo. We're jest like any other football fans.

"Jumbo" is what "Stillers" fans call bologna, and it's a staple food in Pittsburgh, served on white bread purchased from the Giant Iggle, maybe with mayonnaise if they're feeling fancy. They love that shit -- and it's why they're not like other football fans.
