Not long ago, former Steelers coach Bill Cowher was seen leading the cheers for the Carolina Hurricanes in their date with the Pittsburgh Penguins during the NHL’s Eastern Conference finals.
Later in Game Four, when it appeared that the Penguins would complete the four-game sweep of Cowher’s adopted squad, the Pittsburgh native tried to do a little damage control.
He’s done even more during his visit with soldiers stationed in the Middle East. Cowher has proclaimed that Iraq is part of Steeler Nation, given the heavy presence of Terrible Towels.
Actually, Cowher could make the same statement about Iran. But Cowher probably shouldn’t visit Iraq’s next-door q-less neighbor right now — that would be almost as foolish as rooting for the Hurricanes in a best-of-seven match against the Pens.
