Yellow Stuff

Since I live with someone who grew up in steel country (Pittsburgh, PA) yellow and black are the colors for this weekend as the Pittsburgh Steelers confront the Green Bay Packers in the Superbowl.

Created in 1975 by then Steelers radio broadcaster Myron Cope, The Terrible Towel is widely recognized as a symbol of the Steelers and the city of Pittsburgh.

Proceeds from sales of the Towel have raised over US$3 million for a Pennsylvania school which cares for people with mental retardation and physical disabilities.

The current manufacturer of the Terrible Towel is McArthur Towel & Sports Co., in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Can you spell IRONIC?

With insincere apologies to Packers fans . . . GO STEELERS!

Oh my! That is ironic! We saw a segment on tv about the place that makes those towels.

No, Go Packers!

Well, Danielle, the game is soon on. Who knows, I may be crying into my towel when it's over . . . great fun anyway!
