It's no secret that we love Steelers football around here, so Pittsburgh's win over San Diego in the NFL playoffs yesterday made for an enjoyable evening in the Luce household. My love for the Steelers has obviously grown out of my husband's incredible passion and loyalty, and I will admit that part of me cheers them on just because I know Chad will be miserable if they lose. However, I'm pretty sure that Pittsburgh would be my favorite team even if my hubby wasn't such a huge fan, primarily because Hines Ward is my favorite player of all time. I'm convinced that it's impossible to watch this guy play and not become a huge fan. Not only is he an amazing player with incredible toughness, but he always looks like he is having the time of his life out there on the field. How can you not love him??? Check out some pictures from yesterday's game, taken by AP photographer Gene Puskar. Amazing shots!!

I swear there's no other player in the league who keeps a smile on his face while catching, running, blocking, being pursued, and being tackled! I wish I had the video from yesterday's game to share, because he is so freakin' fun to watch! How can you not love this guy???

I love him too! Partly because he is slightly good looking! Ha! In all seriousness though, he is really great and has such a passion for the game!

When have I ever been down when the Steelers don't win the Super Bowl? Besides, 1976, 1977, 1980-2004, 2006 and 2007?

BTW - did you know that the Steelers beat the Raiders 34-28 in the first game they played after I was born? That was nice of Coach Noll to commemorate my birth with a big win.
