I saw this on the Star board and felt compelled to post it here, and I think it's funny. We're always led to believe how bad some of the Colts fanbase is when it comes to not caring about the playoff games and giving the tickets away. Well the supposedly great Pittsburgh Steelers fanbase allowed tickets to be available at the door for that game up to AN HOUR before game time! I don't want to hear anymore about how great Steeler fans are, and how they travel so well. They've lost their right if they haven't sold out a playoff game an hour before kickoff.
It's 9 or so Paragraphs down.
"As a misty rain fell, last night's 8 o'clock start time was pushed back 13 minutes. But why not an unlucky omen to add to an atmosphere unlike anything experienced in the playoffs here before? Tickets were available at face value outside the stadium an hour before game time. Although a few empty seats were apparent at the start, the 63,629 in attendance were in full throat during the comeback. They were so spirited that the upper decks of the stadium shook and swayed."
Maybe the Steelers fanbase is like most others and is only tough when the team has an apparent Super Bowl run on the horizon? Maybe the "hardened" Steeler fanbase didn't want to get wet last night to watch the team lose to the Jags?
