They were whooping it up at Cuz’s Susquehanna Bar & Grille in Exeter last Sunday and they’ll be whooping it up again this afternoon at Pittston Area High School in Yatesville.
We’re talking about Pittsburgh Steelers fans.
Cuz’s, a.k.a. “Steelers Central” of Greater Pittston, was jammed with frenzied fans last Sunday evening as the Steelers beat the New York Jets to advance to next Sunday’s Super Bowl. Today, all Steelers fans are asked to don their Black & Gold and gather at 1 p.m. in the lobby of Pittston Area High School for a group photo which will appear in next Sunday’s issue of The Sunday Dispatch.
If the past is any indication, today’s photo-op will turn into a Steelers pep rally.
Green Bay Packers fans are also welcome to show up today for their own photo.
The Sunday Dispatch is in the process of gathering predictions for this year’s Super Bowl. The paper does this every year. Last year the Dispatch published 705 predictions, 368 for the Indianapolis Colts and 337 for the New Orleans Saints.
The staff is out to surpass 705 this year, perhaps hit 1,000, and everyone can help. Just send in your predictions. And don’t forget to add a short witty comment.
The Dispatch prefers receiving predictions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please send your prediction to one email or the other, but not both. Round up family members and work or school friends and send in a bunch of predictions. Please don’t write in ALL CAPS.
The Dispatch will not publish predictions with first names only or nicknames only. Please include last names.
There are prizes. Fans who predict the game exactly – right winner, right score – will be entered into a drawing. Two winners will be drawn for gift certificates of $25 each for Saints and Sinners tavern and the River Street Ale House.
If no one picks the game exactly, the two picks judged to be the closest will win the gift certificates.
While the Dispatch prefers email, phone calls will be accepted. Call Jack Smiles at 602-0178. If you miss him leave a message. Speak plainly and spell last names.
Forms will be available at some local watering holes and other locations.
If you fill out a form, please write legibly.
