Go Steelers!

In honor of the Steelers 8th Super Bowl appearance, I present a photo of my brother, me, and my mom taken back on either the day of Steelers Super Bowl win #3 or #4 - so either 21 January 1979 or or 20 January 1980. This photo was taken at my grandma's house in Carnegie, where we all gathered to eat and cheer the team to victory. My brother had a Terrible Towel & a Steelers t-shirt but I did not -- apparently all I got was a tiny black & gold TOSSLE CAP pin knit by my grandma.

I can't wait to see what SP has to say about that bit of Pittsburgh-ese! TOSSLE CAP. See also this.

GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Love the photo!! Also enjoyed the Pittsburgh-ese link. Go Steelers is right!!!!

  2. Tossle Cap knit pin? That's awesome! I hope you still have it stored somewhere. That is one of the more unique Steelers wearables I've seen.
