Steelcity Tavern relocated!!

Posted on: January 25, 2008 9:39 pm
 
Hi all,

Welcome to the Steelcity Tavern!  My good friend Blitzburgh was kind enough to open the doors to the original on the Steelers message board but it has since been overrun with Trolls.  I've decided to beef up security and relocate.  Come on in, order a drink, and discuss whatever you fancy.  The doors are always open and the drinks are always free.

Welcome

BTW, Management reserves the right to kick out any patrons who don't show the proper respect.

I see Mano that you have a wide array of favorite teams.  Move around alot?

Welcome, britton, any respectful fan of another team is welcome in the Tavern, even a Browns fan.  It's a little slow around here in the offseason, but I try to stop by whenever I have company! lol.

As for your question, no, I don't move around much.  I live in Canada, Southwestern Ontario to be more specific, so I don't really have any local teams to root for.  Detroit is the closest major city with a significant number of major sports teams, but the Detroit media is brutal and I have never liked any of their teams.  I don't mind the Lions, but I have always hated the Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons.
Growing up, I rooted for the teams who had players I respected on them.  I followed individual players more than the teams themselves.  Except with the Steelers, I have been a Steelers fan since I was 6 years old and it has never mattered who was on the team.
I became an A's fan because of Rickey Henderson.  I became a Bulls fan because of Michael Jordan.  I became a Canadiens fan because of Patrick Roy.  As the players either left, or retired, I remained a fan of those teams, although my interest in them was diminished.  The NFL is my passion, the other sports I follow marginally, mostly at playoff time.

I am guessing that you will go RB in the first round... Hindsight is 20/20 huh?  I see Mano that you have a wide array of favorite teams.  Move around alot?

Boy, this place has been somewhat overlooked lately!  Sorry about that guys, I've been so engulfed in draft talk that the Tavern has been on the back burner. 

DRINKS ARE ON THE HOUSE!!!

Alright, lets get back to business.   The draft picture is starting to take shape.  I'm putting together a mock draft as we speak that I'll post about a week before the draft.  Let's just say that I'm not completely sold on going O-line in round one...

I'll be happy to order the first round. Make it an Iron City for everyone in the house.

It was good to see that charges have been dropped against James Harrison. The coverage today gave a lot more details into the dispute that led to the charges. While the situation certainly was not appropriate, it doesn't appear to be excessively violent the way Cedric Wilson's situation did.

Now I'm hoping for a great draft by the Steelers and an awesome season.

Mano, I take it back, less nerd and more casanova! From what I've seen it may even help me get lucky tonight... or not...

But back to the football, Mewelde will be missed in Minni but good luck with him, I always liked him.

Something for the weekend me thinks, I'll take a bottle of Champagne, I've had a good spoting week and I get to spend 2 days ribbing my Dad about my "Soccer" team beating his.

Just so you know, it was 4-0, mucho humiliation...

Comin' right up FoT!  And don't worry, I won't block the door when you try to leave ;)

So, what does everybody think of this Mewelde Moore kid?  The more I read about him, the more I like him.  He has a good skill set and he seems like a great guy.  Active in the community, good person.  I hope he can help this team, especially in the return game.

P.S, I know I had a lot last night but, Mano, you look different, whats with the new Avatar? Makes you look more nerd, less jock, It's not a bad thing, just perception.

Patrick...that, my friend, is The Continental!  Christopher Walken on SNL.  If you've never seen it, youtube it, funny stuff!  I learned everything I know about seducing women from that skit! lol
