Top 4 Reasons To Become A Steelers Fan

Top 4 Reasons To Become A Steelers Fan

Steeler Nation will accept you with open arms.

The NFL consist of 32 teams from all across the country, but one team is by far the best. They many not have cheerleaders or a mascot, but they are armed with six Super Bowl trophies, an amazing slogan, and a Terrible Towel that will help bring them extra luck on Sundays. This team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. With plays like Antonio Brown, Martavias Bryant, and Heath Miller I'd say we're ready to win Super Bowl 51. If your current NFL team isn't cutting it for you and you are in the market for a new one, here are four reasons to become a Steelers fan.

1. We have fans all across the country.

In 1975, former Steelers radio announcer Myron Cope came up with the Terrible Towel to give the Steelers a little extra luck against the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl (and it worked). Since then, you can always spot a Steelers fan with a least one towel. The towel has become so popular that newborn babies are wrapped in it when they're in the hospital and is used in weddings. Sorry, other NFL teams, our towel is by far the best.

2. Black and gold look good on everyone.

Let's face it, not every NFL team has the best colors. Some are just ugly! Our colors, black and gold, are the perfect colors to rock whenever you're running to the grocery store, getting ready to cheer on the Steelers at Heinz Field or need something to wear during the day. You can even catch some black and gold on celebrities such as Channing Tatum (bottom picture) and Joe Manganiello (top picture).

3. We have the most Super Bowls out of all the teams in the NFL.

Need I say more?

4. Our slogan is really easy to remember.

No matter where you are, you can always hear a Steelers fan yelling, "Here we go! Here we go Steelers! Here we go"! The best part about our slogan is it's short, sweet, and to the point.

So if you're ready to take the plug, Steeler Nation will accept you will open arms (especially if you used to be a Ravens fan and saw the error in your ways)!

7 Things That Annoy Volleyball Players More Than Anything

How to get under a volleyball player's skin in two seconds.

I'm not sure why but volleyball players are a very particular group of people — we like what we like and we HATE what we don't, especially when it is volleyball-related. If you're a volleyball player, I'm sure you can relate to this list and if you're not a volleyball player, now you know exactly how you will be able to get under our skin.

1. Girls who wear spandex in public

Don’t get me wrong, we wear spandex for a living. We understand WHY people wear them to workout. But wearing them to the dining hall, class or anywhere that isn’t the gym… please don’t. Put on some shorts or leggings — PLEASE.

2. The “I’ll beat you in volleyball” line

For some odd reason when someone who likes you finds out that you play volleyball, they say this. I’m not sure why, but its really annoying that people think they’re better than you (a collegiate athlete) at the sport you’ve been playing your whole life.

3. When guys mention that they only come to your games because you wear spandex

You’re right, why would any appreciate our athletic ability when you can simply appreciate our butts.

4. Freshman who don’t think they have to do their Freshman duties

PSA: Every single school has freshman duties; YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY FRESHMAN WHO HAVE TO DO THEM. Everyone has done them when they were a freshman. Stop complaining, do your duties, and play volleyball because after your freshman season you’ll never have to do it again.

5. When people try to tell you that volleyball isn’t hard

Why don’t you jump for three hours straight and throw your body on the ground hundreds of times and tell me how easy it is.

6. The word "spike"

I honestly feel bad about hating this so much but nothing nothing NOTHING annoys us more than when someone uses the work "spike". For some reason this word went out of style a longgggg time ago and nobody got the memo except the people in the volleyball world. Instead of telling your friend that they had a good spike, tell them that they had a great "hit." HIT = SPIKE.

7. Balls that aren't perfectly blown up

Volleyball players are hands down the most high maintenance group of people when it comes to our sport. I will go through an entire ball cart to find the best ball possible... if the ball is flat, no matter what contact you make it is going to be bad. If the ball is too hard, no matter what contact you make it is going to be bad.

Four Teams Who Can (Maybe) Stop The Warriors

Don't give the Warriors next season's championship just yet.


The Golden State Warriors are a monstrosity or perfection, depending on whether or not you're a fan of theirs. However, it's hard not to put your money on the Warriors winning the title again next season. The franchise did basically everything right – from drafting, to culture-building, to attracting all-star free agents – to build a super power that could potentially break the league. It is important to remember though that the Warriors are not unbeatable. If Chris Paul doesn't get hurt in the Western Conference Finals, it's possible that the Rockets enter next season as defending champs. While Golden State will absolutely dominate most teams next season, there are a few who could stand in their way.

Houston Rockets

@rocketszone @rocketszone

The team with the best shot of knocking off the Warriors last season will again be at the top of the list of giant killers. They have reigning MVP James Harden, and will bring back all-star point guard Chris Paul. Both players can take over a game and set the nets on fire, but their supporting cast will be a question mark. Golden State's offense prides itself on being able to move the ball and score from every position, so losing two important wing defenders in Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute is a serious blow. The Rockets have brought in James Ennis and Michael Carter-Williams as replacements, so success in challenging the Warriors hinges on these new players stepping up and Houston's stars staying healthy.

Oklahoma City Thunder

@everything.okcthunder @everything.okcthunder

Beating the Warriors requires offensive star-power, and Oklahoma City definitely has that. Five-time all-star Paul George re-signed with the Thunder, teaming back up with former MVP Russell Westbrook to create a dynamic duo that can hang with anyone. With Jerami Grant, Steven Adams, and a healthy Andre Roberson, this is a team that should be able to compete with Golden State. However, their biggest improvement from last season may be a case of addition by subtraction. The Thunder are looking to cut ties with Carmelo Anthony, which sounds curious but makes a lot of sense for this team. Anthony isn't the player he once was, and his mid-range game doesn't really fit as well in a league focused on three-point shooting. While his 36.1 three-point percentage was basically at league average, that's not really acceptable from a shooter making $26 million. With Anthony gone, the Thunder will be able to put a better defender on the court while giving more touches to Westbrook and George.

Los Angeles Lakers

@lakers24ever @lakers24ever

There are two reasons why I have the Lakers listed here. Number one: I needed enough teams to make this article. Number two: LeBron James. He may be the only established star on the Lakers, but he is one of two who led a Cavaliers team to victory over the Warriors in the 2016 Finals (we'll get to the other in a bit). Knowing how to beat the Warriors matters, and there's no one with that knowledge better than LeBron. His teammates aren't completely worthless either. Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma are all talented youngsters who can be part of a future championship team. Los Angeles also signed playoff tested players like Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Lance Stephenson who can provide defense and a veteran presence around LeBron. If this team can gel and the young players improve quickly, they may be able to compete with Golden State.

Boston Celtics

@celticscenter @celticscenter

Likely the best team in the East just finished off an Eastern Conference Finals run that featured their two best players out with injuries. Jason Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Al Horford used their athleticism and scoring prowess to put teams away in the playoffs, and those talents are exactly what's needed to put away Golden State. Coming back are all-stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, who was the other star on that championship Cavs team mentioned earlier. This team – coached by one of the best minds in basketball in Brad Stevens – will be one of the best in the NBA, hands down. They showed they could defend anyone last year, and with their stars back they will be able to keep up with the firepower of teams like the Warriors. I'm not saying the Celtics will beat the Warriors if those two teams met in the Finals, but I think Boston would have a fighting chance.
