Although I've lived in Pittsburgh for six years I'm a Bills fan first and foremost. Evenso, it's tough to not get caught up in the Steelersmania now that they're headed to the Superbowl, so I feel like making a friendly wager:

If my team doesn't win the Superbowl I will incorporate the opposing team's logo into my avatar and wear it that way for the entire week following the game.

I'm pulling for the Steelers - so if they lose I've got to put that ugly hawk in my avatar for 7 days following the Superbowl.

Any other Steelers or Seahawks fans willing to do the same? If I don't get at least one Seattle fan to agree I'll withdraw my offer - hopefully you're not all fearful of featuring hypercycloids in your avatars


Update:

Putting their avatars on the line in favor of the STEELERS :
Octavian
Longbow
(Will use a Seagal/S.Alexander avatar and design geekbadge to BookandGame's specifications if Steelers lose)
Moon Knight
PghArch
gpruitt


Putting their avatars on the line in favor of the SEAHAWKS :
GROGnads
BookandGame
(Will put The Bus in his avatar if Seahawks lose)

Re: Seahawks and Steelers fans - put your avatar on the line
goo [size=11]Oh, alright then, I'll "do the 'honors'!" for this! I'm for "Seattle" myself then, and others could "pair up" as well, to put their "avatar where their 'mouth' is" too. As a further 'enticement', then WE should perform this 'duty' for an entire MONTH as well. If you're agreeable to the 'amended conditions', then just AGREE to that. GOOD LUCK~to the "Seahawks" that is.
cool

P.S.-be sure to 'match up' with an opposing 'player' here, or we can just 'go' in the sequence that they're SHOWN as here. That way it is "First here, first served".

I'm in. If the Steelers win, I'll put that Bus guy in my avatar, but when the hawks win you've got to put Shaun Alexander in yours. Deal? On second thought, could we find a picture of the Seagals?

Deal. And to further demonstrate my unwavering confidence in a Steeler victory, I will also agree to modify my geekbadge at your discretion (provided it's clean and in good fun, of course).

I'll go with the Seahawks. I really could care less, but it'll give me an excuse to screw with my avatar again.

You could always use that avatar NOW - convert your allegience to the Steelers, and change again to the Seahawks should they pull out a victory.

Re: Seahawks and Steelers fans - put your avatar on the line
Despite having grown up a KC Chiefs fan, and having no particular hatred for the Steelers, I will toss in for the Seahawks. Now if it had been the Raiders, there's no way in the world I could have taken the chance...

The Seahawks will score. Can the Steelers score more?

Re: Seahawks and Steelers fans - put your avatar on the line!
The Steelers have been averaging 25 points a game in the regular season and playoffs - more if you only count Ben's games. They've topped 30 points six times. They'll score. No worries about that

Re: Seahawks and Steelers fans - put your avatar on the line!
Just another stat to show why the Steelers have a better than average chance at domination:

The Seahawks played one 3-4 defense this year: Dallas. They won, 13-10, because Beldsoe was intercepted with 14 seconds left in the 4th quarter allowing Seattle to kick a field goal. They were 3-13 on 3rd down. Alexander rushed for 61 yards. Hasselbeck was 23/42 for 224 yards, 1 TD, and 2 INT.

Just throwing that out there.

Put me in, coach. I actually think we have a chance of not embarrassing ourselves.

That's the spirit!

We need some more members of Steeler Nation in here! Can't let this Seahags appear to have more faith in their team than we do!

I'm guessing your rooting for the Hawks, then, eh?

Come on Steelers fans! Where's all the sauron and angry ?

Re: Superbowl XL-put your avatar on the line!-9 people so fa
Oh, and since I'm not a terribly frequent poster here, I'll agree to keep the avatar up for a minumum number of posts as well. I'm proposing something like one week or ten posts, whichever is longer (it'll surely be the latter in my case). Anyone up for that?

No time to start being a frequent poster like the present And if all of your past posts will sport whatever avatar is current. If you want to keep your nice shiny new Steelers avatar for longer, though, you are more than welcome

Re: Superbowl XL-put your avatar on the line!-9 people so fa
Yeah, I know how it works. I'm just thinking that no one will look at most of my old posts if it comes to that. And I can easily go weeks or months without a post (I try not to unless I've got something halfway useful to say - or I'm really bored). So it is with this in mind that I changed my offer to ten posts (or longer). If the Seahawks win, I'll want to see your avatars all over the place as well, not just on old posts that no one reads.

No worries on this end - mkgray's stat of the week has me pegged as the most prolific poster for 10 of the 24 hours of each day. If the Steelers should lose you'll be seeing a new me all over the place

Big deal. They used the same argument to show why the Redskins and the Panthers would beat the Seahawks in the playoffs. Stats are a nice thing, but they tend to B.S. a bit.

Seahawks will prevail.

Seahawks Rule! And they're from the great state of Washington, home of He-Who-Rules-Over-All, GROGNADS! I agree to dislay a Steelers avatar should the Unthinkable occur, but it ain't happening.
