Truly tasteless Steelers fans

I certainly understand the quiet, internal relief a fan might feel when a player they just can't beat gets knocked out for the season, but this is pretty sad. A Pittsburgh fan Web site is selling a t-shirt celebrating Tom Brady's torn ACL. Seriously, that is just totally classless. I'd say it if it was a Pats fan celebrating an injury to Peyton Manning or LaDainian Tomlinson. It's just totally gross for anyone to celebrate the injury to any other player, I don't care who it is. I do understand it at some level, though. The Steelers are a miserable 1-5 against Tom Brady (0-2 in the playoffs, both at home), with their one win coming thanks in part to big Patriots injuries. If the Steelers make another run to the Super Bowl, they may want to consider giving their team MVP award to Kansas City Chief Bernard Pollar for laying the hit on Brady.
