    It was a dark day in Steelers history. The Tennessee Titans crushed the Black and Gold this season, then stomped on the Terrible Towel. The Titans haven't won since. Coincidence?

    Curse Of The Terrible Towel
    A Poem By Dave Crawley

    There is power, they say, in the towels that wave.
    Like black and gold shrouds on the visitor's grave.
    It's a mojo opponents should never neglect.
    The Terrible Towel requires respect.

    Then this! A deed unspeakably foul!
    The Tennessee Titans defiles the towel!
    Although their crass actions made Steeler fans wince,
    You'll notice that Titan team hasn't won since.

    They lost to the Colts. Then the Ravens came in,
    A game Tennessee was expected to win.
    But the curse of the towel gave Tennessee shakes,
    As they sank in a series of stunning mistakes.

    Our Black and Gold guys had a much different story.
    Santonio Holmes led the gallop to glory.
    Fast Willie scored, and the Steelers were winning.
    For the Chargers the torment was only beginning.

    Third quarter. Alas, on the Bolts' only play,
    Foote gives them the boot, and he takes it away.
    The towels were twirling as Ben let it go,
    And the much maligned offense was starting to flow.

    That towel brings sorcery into the fray.
    If you don't believe it, well, check out this play.
    To add to the Chargers' grim feelings of dread,
    A punt that careened off this poor fellow's head.

    The message, of course, as we hooted with glee,
    From the Terrible Towel: Do not tread on me.
    A word to the Ravens. The moment draws nigh.
    This is the reason you're still flying high.

    The Titans besmirched it, and now to our glee
    They will be watching this game on TV.
    As you enter the confines where Steeler fans howl:
    Beware of the curse of the Terrible Towel.

    That was pretty cool. Remember what happened to Palmer as well when TJ disrespected the towel.

    Behavior like that is just uncalled for. To me that is total disrespect for not only the symbol of the Steeler Nation, but for Myron Cope.
    To whoever defiles The Terrible Towel: YOU will FOREVER be cursed!!!:nln:

    This just might be his last year, especially if he uses The Towel as a prop.
