Another reason we're both terrified and in awe of Steelers fans: Someone snuck to the top of the Space Needle in Seattle and started waving a Terrible Towel. Frankly, with all we're learning about Steelers fans, we're kind of surprised they didn't climb up to the top and replace that "12th Man" flag.
Oh, and in case you thought schoolchildren and the corporate world were somehow exempt from all this madness, people in Allegheny County are printing out permission slips for everyone to participant in "Black And Gold Week." Notably, the slip permits fans to listen to the "Pittsburgh Polka" at one's desk. We have no idea what that means.
