yeah, what a funny site. I wish we had better schools so the kids would learn the names of more tribes. That way when the wacko's grow up they wouldn't all pretend to be Cherokee! lol :regular_s

Being from western Pennsylvania I am a big Steelers fan. I think the teams are pretty equal so I don't think the Seahawks are much of an underdog. I always like the games better when the Steelers are...
