We, the Ferrucci’s are Huge Steeler fans! We ordered the NFL Sunday ticket just so we can make sure we can watch every game they play. Being in New England, we’re subject to Giants and Patriots. Football is a big event at our house. The same “crew” comes each week- Giants, Redskin, San Fran, Cinn, and others- (everyone can’t be perfect!).
Just like players, we have our traditions too. The jersey gets put on right before the game and hung back up after the game. We have lots of food to eat through out the day, I usually make some kind of macaroni (we’re Italian) and we always have buffalo wings! Steve the Steeler Snowman sits in his “childs” rockin chair (this was our daughter’s when she was two). Steve stays there the entire season. Nobody, not even children, are allowed to touch Steve! (or else they will deal with TT ..that’s me)
During halftime we got outside and play a little, supposedly, touch football, but someone usually gets slammed into one of the many cars parked on the street. Once I start yelling that someone is going to get hurt, we then just pass the football (this is when I get involved. I can throw a pretty good spiral but I need to work on my distance. My daughter can pass it about 30 yards with a bullet spiral.
We yell, jump, high five, and commentate. We scream the player’s names and what they should be doing. Our Terrible Towels whip through the air and if you sit too close to one of us you will feel the wrath of the towel- so be careful! We do this every week in hopes that we will (yes we are a part of the team) go to the Superbowl!
This year all our work paid off! We went to the Superbowl and won our 6th Superbowl ring! I think we just got our voices back.
Well now it’s down time……next month we’ll start to get our gear ready for opening day in April of The Yankees……stay tuned!
