The Terrible Towel is Out of This World

But then you knew that already. Click here to view a NASA astronaut's video of the Terrible Towel in space. Myron would be proud. "Yoi and double-yoi!!"

As Myron himself wrote,

"The Terrible Towel is not an instrument of witchcraft.
It is not a hex upon the enemy.

The Towel is a positive force that lifts the Steelers to magnificent heights
and poses mysterious difficulties for the Steelers' opponents only if need be.

Many have told me that the Terrible Towel brought them good fortune,
but I can't guarantee that sort of thing because the Steelers, after all,
are the Towel's primary concern.

Still, at the least ... if it causes good things to happen to you, so much the better."

My friend who isn't from pittsburgh remarked during the AFC championship, "What the hell is up with the terrible towel? There are so many."
To which I told him, "Everybody in Pittsburgh owns one. It's what they wrap you in when you're born and they send you home from the hospital in it. I was born in Pittsburgh, I should know. And I still have my towel. "

It is deemed in Scripture: "And the baby shall be wrapped in swaddling Terrible Towel."

I think the theological tone is appropriate...Myron seems to be invoking some kind of rabbinic argument for the power of the tallit, or prayer shawl which Orthodox Jewish men wear. Maybe terrible towels can be equated with the prayer shawls.

As Myron himself would have said: "Mazeltov!"

The Terrible Towel was just abused by the Phoenix mayor at the Cards sendoff in Phoenix. Mayor sneezed into it, threw it on the ground, and the mascot stomped on it.
