So, we have a cousin-in-law who works for a major athletic apparel manufacturer.  She has been able to procure Steelers tickets for us in the past.  Bro & Dad went to the Jets game on her, friends of mine in PGH to the Panthers game.
My sister has the bright idea to text her about the possibility of SB tix yesterday.  And yes, she has a line on 'em.  At face.
Calls back, gets sis's card number, tix are purchased.  4 tix. Sis, BIL, bro, me. What?

WE HAVEN'T WON YET!!!!!

Today I get the text from sis that she & hubby have bought plane tix on Southwest because friends of my bro, who work for SW, say prices will jump on Sunday.  Plus, tix are fully refundable for a year.  Text bro, he's purchasing our tix as I text.  I'm in my company's annual meeting all week, so my capacity to do anything but work is limited.  Hence I'm here at 11:38 at night.  So now we have reasonably priced tix to fly to Dallas on SB weekend.  What??

WE HAVEN'T WON YET!!!!!

I'm now officially freaking out.  Have we jinxed it all?  Please God, no.  Please don't be that vindictive.  I know I've promised things in return for victories, and I haven't always held up my end of the bargain (except for some pictures a couple of times...).
But please don't punish me like this.  Please.
Please let me have a reason to go to Dallas in 2 weeks.


I think I need to refill my Xanax prescription.....

LC - you could offset some of the balance by getting out if front of this situation.  If you ante up some new pics, you can overcome the karma!!!!

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

Complete fuckery. A buddy of mine decided to bring his Steelers SB CD to the bar when the 15-1 Steelers played the Pats a few years back.

A few days back he wants to buy the 2011 version and play it before the Ravens game. I reminded him of the previous dick move.

Had to go and get greedy.

Jinx Sminx. I'm more worried (or pissed) about all the asshole season ticket holders selling their tickets to Jets fans.

You've got to divest yourself of these tickets before you crash our fate!

Best send them to me for safe keeping.

Story 'bout the Steelers gnome.  A few weeks ago, a garden gnome in Steelers attire is looking in our front door one Sunday morning as we get the newspaper delivery.  No explanation.  I figure it's our neighbors, as we do things like this back and forth.  A while back, I was on the morning dog walk when I spotted a sweet wooden parrot that had been put out with someone's trash.  It looked like a tiki bar reject.  So I grab it and stick it in their garden in the front yard.  Stuff like that.  So when I'd be getting overheated and needed to ventilate, I'd run outside, grab the gnome and do this celebration in the snow, cooling down in the process.  Steelers tie the Ratties 21 all, I go to scoop the gnome... and fuck if I don't fumble the thing and bust it all up.  Now, I think I should glue him back together just in case, but the fact is that we still won with the broken gnome anyway, so maybe the gnome is not crucial to my personal contribution to the Steelers mojo.

Best part was when Mrs. told the neighbor of the gnome's demise, she referred to my maneuver as having "Houshmandzadeh'd" it.  Effin' sweet.  Nice matriculation of the Doucheman's name into a verb.
