When they're together, they're not alone

This just in from Jackson, who probably still doesn't think wearing a helmet's a good idea when you're riding a cycle, lost in sad memories of how you played in the Super Bowl.

Subject: show your Steelers pride... on TV

Hey folks,

Yes, a fresh season of Steeler football will soon be upon us... but not just any season. Oh no... for this is a season that sees us take the field as defending World Champions.
Surely, this requires us to assemble in large groups and make much, much noise.
That's where you come in. We're putting out the call to ALL NEW YORK CITY AREA STEELER FANS to assemble the morning of THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 at Rockefeller Center at the set of the Today Show. As you know, the Steelers kick off the NFL season that night against the Miami Dolphins. As you also may know, the game marks the return of NFL football to NBC. They're very excited about this development, and would be more than happy if we showed up at the Today Show and made some noise about it. It also turns out that the good folks at Today are planning a lot of Steelers related programming that day (a piece that follows the Bus back to the 'Burgh, a visit to the Steelers' annual women's camp, etc.) and would love to see as many of us as we can muster. The more black and gold packing the plaza, the better.
Bring your Terrible Towels, bring your signs, and bring your voice... the cameras will be there.

Here are the details:

WHERE: Rockefeller Center (in front of the GE Building, where the Christmas tree stands every year).

WHEN: Thursday, September 7 at 6:30 a.m. (show begins at 7, and will carry live coverage of us through 10 a.m.).

WHO: You, and any Steeler fans you might know.

WHY: Because we're the world champs, you jagoff.

Hope to see you there.

In Franco we trust,

Mean Rob
