Thursday Thirteen Edition #6


Thirteen Ways To Know Football Season Has Arrived at The House!


1. Isis and I become cheerleaders thanks to our black and gold fur.
2. Red, orange, green, blue, purple, and even brown are all banned from The House until March.
3. Instead of attending Sunday mass at noon, the human pet wakes up especially early for the seven o'clock mass so she can be home in time for kick-off.
4. There's an increase in spaghetti products stockpiled in the pantry.
5. Tostitos, salsa, and queso become a standard desert.
6. Sailors even blush at the blue streak issued from the human pet's lips.
7. People who do not want to watch, cheer, or support the Steelers are asked to leave.
8. The hours of noon to four o'clock on Sunday become an aerobic exercise in standing up and sitting down.
9. There is no taking the name of Roethlisberger in vain.
10. Every month, the human pet curses her DirecTV bill, but writes it off as "a worthy cause".
11. Attire for Sundays must be: Steeler hat, Steeler shirt, Steeler pants, Steeler socks, Steeler shoes...and of course, Steeler boxers.
12. Between September and March, the human pet gains seasonal telepathic abilities with the Steeler coaches as they communicate via the television.
13. There's no messing with Bill Cowher's chin whatsoever!

You aren't die hard Steeler fans, are you? I couldn't really tell. :) hee hee...
That is some serious stuff. Did you have a stroke when they won the Super Bowl or what? That's awesome!!! Here's to a great football season!

Ghost said...

You know I might have to get interested in football if watching the games could be exercise. ;)

Have a happy and enjoy the season.

SunshineBlues said...

Very cute listing! The fall does usher in sports doesn't it? Guess I need to get ready for that! Nice way to exercise! Mine is up. Happy Thursday!

The Meezers said...

does she not have a Terrible Towel? and just WHO is wearing the boxers?
When mommy lived in Philadelphia she used to go to "last chance Catholic Mass" at 6pm, along with all of the other Eagles fans.

Knitting Maniac said...

hey ... guess where I live? Ben's hometown.

Great list! Happy TT!

George, Tipper, Max & Misty said...

I think this borders on obsession Zeus, and you may need to look into getting professional help for your pet! I've heard about similar things happening in Whisk-onsin with (whispers) Packers fans.

Luckily nothing like that happens in our house!

K T Cat said...

Black and gold? I am SO with you!

Geaux Saints!

:-)

The Meezers said...

Zeus, Mommy thought that efurryone who was borned in Pittsburgh got a Terrible Towel at birf. She and Daddy went to PITT for kollege. That prolly 'splains a lot about them.

Heather Smith said...

LOL! Too funny! My Brother in Law is a huge Steelers fan, though not quite as die-hard as your human I don't think!

Sadie said...

We are a Steeler house too, my hubby grew up in the Pittsburgh area. Although my favorite team is the Panthers (don't throw things at me)! Enjoyed your list...

Gail said...

There's some serious Steeler fans around your place!
Thanks for visting mine.

Renee said...

sounds a bit like World Cup season here...good thing it's only every 4 years or I would have to get mad at DH.

Have a great season!

The Fisher Family said...

We love football season around our home...although...were Atlanta Falcon fans. Sorry...did I just cuss at you? I wasn't rtying too. ;-) It is fun tho, huh? Good luck this season! And have fun.

Our TT is up! :)

Deb said...

Yep, we eat more spaghetti in the fall, too...it's just so darn satisfying ;~)

Have a great Thursday...my TT is up, too!

Amanda said...

LOL. All the best to your team!

Cheysuli said...

Fortunately, my human does not get all excited about sports. It sounds tiring.. By the way Zeus, you made #1 on my Thursday 13

Christina said...

Tostitos, salsa, and queso make football season not such a bad time of the year.

Thanks for the visit today!

Kimmy said...

Ha! Great list! Very entertaining! Go COLTS! Er, I mean Go STEELERS! ;)

Happy T13! My list's up, too!

Rascal said...

Zeus, Steelers have nothing to do with Cats. You need to be a Panthers fan like Me.

Susan said...

Thanks for stopping by my TT13!

Stacy said...

I'm sensing a Steelers fan in the blogosphere :)

I love football and we're sooo ready for football season. Bring it on!

Kailani said...

My brother in law is a big Steelers fan, too. It sounds like you're describing his home!

Renee said...

I can understand how using the phone might be a problem for you...have you asked your human pet for a speaker phone? I know it makes it sound like you're talking into a can...but less neck strain for a kitty.

Happy Thursday.
Thanks for stopping by.

Jenny Ryan said...

12. Between September and March, the human pet gains seasonal telepathic abilities with the Steeler coaches as they communicate via the television.

I love this! :)

Derby said...

Ummm in number two, why don't you likek these colors? What is wrong with red, orange, green, blue, purple and brown?

Mum likes football, but the way the local team is going it is going to be a looooong season. 'Dem Packers probably won't be doing furry well.

NOLADawn said...

Hmmm, well black and gold around hear means the Saints are marchin' in :)

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

We're jealous Zeus and Isis! We both have blonde hair and are not multicolored, so we can't be cheerleaders. Hmmm...maybe we could look into being a mascot!

Tina said...

(from Pretty Kitty & Tai on behalf of our bean...)

So our bean feels the same way/exhibits the same ridiculous behaviour about something called the Patriots...

Lilize said...

hahaha great TT but..... pardon my ignorance but... what does spaghetti have to do with football??? hehehe

didn't put up a TT today and i'm all to blame. actually, blame laziness.

Kuanyin said...

My partner is a footballholic, and soon we will take off for the Mainland for many games. I just hope he doesn't get the s*** beat out of him on other's football turf because he is LOUD! BTW, I'm a TT!
Blessings...Kuanyin

Rosie & Cheeto said...

Yoo too are such grate chearers! Yoo make me want to be a stealurs fan too! How do I sign up? -Rosie

Nathalie said...

I know what you're going through, I have it with soccer-football. I lurv watching that! I hope your team has a great season!
Thanks for visiting my tt, and for liking the music!

Tigersan said...

Your $5 has just made me hungry!!!
But, me can't understand why anyone would want to support "Steelers"... are they like taking stuff from others with asking ;) (sorry.. no American "grid-iron" over here in Japan ;).

Finnegan & Buddy said...

Oh...ummmm...errr...Cos we live in Charlotte we are kind of the Panthers fans, but we don't watch efurry game or go reely crazy over it.

Mom knows some beans at werk who are big Steelers fans and it was fun to see them so happy wen they won the Supper Bowl last yeer.

Hey all you Steelrs fans! Mom writes emales to a soldier in Iraq and one of his soldier frends is a big Steelers fan. If anybean has a thing or two of Steelrs stuff they could give him, we'd like to make him happy. Email us at finnegan_cat@hotmail.com or leave a commment at owr blog and we'll talk. THanks!!
