It's Steelers Week: If You Can't Get Up For This, You Have No Business Being Here

This is Steelers week. Yes. That team that "won" the Super Bowl in 2005 through Carson Palmer's knee during the Wild Card game that year. Bill Cowher mocked Cincinnati's "Who Dey" signature after the game. T.J. Houshmandzadeh used the terrible towel to clean his shoes.

The rivalry was at one point on the cover of Sports Illustrated (right). The offseason after breaking Keith Rivers' jaw, Hines Ward customary blind-side blocks was banned because of this rivalry. The 9-7 Steelers failed to make the playoffs in 2009 because the Bengals swept them and similarly, the 2006 Bengals win the week 17 game against the Steelers, they're in that year's playoffs on New Year's Eve. The Steelers won in overtime.

According to TiqIQ tickets for this weekend's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers has risen by 13% in the last week, up to $121. The game is sold out. This city has energy.

Bengals defensive tackle referenced poetry when describing the rivalry between the Bengals and Steelers:

“We hate them and they hate us."

Yep. It's Steelers week. If you can't get up for this, you're either not alive or you have no business being here.
