"I'm stationed in Camp Taji, Iraq with the 856 Engineer Company out of Punxsutawney. And, yes, every time we introduce ourselves over here people know two things: you know that groundhog, and you love the Steelers. I just wanted to add to your pics of Terrible Towels from all over the world with this one. It was taken the day the Men of Steel triumphed in SB43." -- SPC Jared Lorenz, Iraq

Sidenote: anytime I get a photo of one of the brave souls protecting us, you can take it to the bank that it's getting posted.

Do you happen to know of anywhere I could find this jersey... I need a size 3x... please help!!!" -- Chris K., Stockdale

I'm guessing that Woodson shirt comes in handy when jogging at dusk.
