Headlines: Pittsburgh Fans are Crazy

John Stewart should devote half of today’s show to the crazy Pittsburgh Steelers fans. Brady says people in Pittsburgh like football because there is nothing else to do, but he just doesn’t understand what its like to be passionate for a winning football team.

But I must say Pittsburgh. You are really out-doing yourself this year. Maybe its because times are so tough the Steelers are the only positive thing going on in our lives. My dad mentioned stores/malls are closing early for the game and employeers are giving people 2 hour delays on Monday to allow for some extra celebrating.

Here are some headlines that prove Pittsburgh has gone crazy.
