Steelers wish you a Merry Christmas, now cover your ears

Rockefeller Center Tree_001214717--300x450

A quarter century after the football-following world’s ears and eyes were subjected to The Super Bowl Shuffle, the Pittsburgh Steelers have provided us with a collection of Christmas Carols, performed by various subgroups of players.

We admire their enthusiasm (even though some groups weren’t all that enthusiastic).

It’s so bad that it’s actually sort of good.

    Or a team can go to a hospital and sing for and meet children…

    I’m no Steelers fan, but I’m ready to buy their defensive line a round of beers. Those big guys put all the fancy little skill players to shame with their singing. Not because they can carry a tune, heck no. Because they gave it their all and had a good time.

    It’s a lesson for all of us: if you’re going to do something, do it with gusto. The surest way to embarrass yourself is to look embarrassed.

    Outstanding.

    Chris Hoke is awesome!

    That’s hysterical, adorable, and just plain precious.

    @meattuperello …

    Guess you missed the link for the Steelers hospital toy drive. Seriously? Are you really that petty? All NFL teams do a lot of charity work, especially this time of year. This was just FUNNY. Maybe Santa will bring you a sense of humor.

    Chris Hoke is hysterical and I love when they leave Pouncey high and dry to sing alone!

    Deb, you are right. Also some of the Steelers visited some of our veterans (I think at Walter Reed) when they played Baltimore.

    I laughed so hard at those big guys having a good time singing off key.

    Maybe Santa will bring meattuperello coal in his stocking!

    Deb,

    The funniest thing about it is how you needed to see the # 7 to pick Fatsburger out of the crowd.

    So since it’s the giving season, I’ll be kind and keep my other comments to myself instead of sharing them with you.

    Glad they got a break from the refs the way they’ve been making all those “non-calls” against the Steelers this year ……

    “Chris Hoke is awesome!”

    +1

    That was awesome. It’s a little unnerving how sweaty some of them got. The Chappelle show running gag was perfectly executed lol.
    Merry Christmas all!

    Why all the Hate for the Steelers at this site?

    On their album they do an amazing cover of September by Earth Wind and Fire.

    The cover of Telephone by Lady Gaga left something to be desired though.

    It certainly shows why the Steelers are NOT a championship-caliber team. ;)

    Seriously. Agreed.

    meattuperello? I know it must be a real bite watching Peyton Manning decend into obscurity while throwing more picks than Brett Favre ever dreamed of throwing. But, the Steelers rule! Deal with it.

  17. cubEbear54 says: Dec 22, 2010 10:38 AM

    This is hysterical!! The guys had a great time. I’m a Bears fan and think this just may have topped the Super Bowl Shuffle. :-)

    However, I’m glad they chose football as their profession…LOL

    @meattuperello …

    Bizarre comment about having to search for the #7 to pick out Roethlisberger. Personally, I wasn’t looking for Roethlisberger–was too busy laughing at the guys who don’t get that much camera time. But if you have a thing for Roethlisberger and wanted to search for him … well, to each his own.

    Merry Christmas!

    Outstanding! Fun to watch. Hilarious! Some appeared really nervous about doing this.

    You really have to feel sorry for anyone that would make a negative comment about watching this. Anybody that is so wound up about their own football to make a negative comment, filled with so much hate, not able to express themselves as being a decent human being during the holidays, well….. you just have to feel sorry for them.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GO STEELERS!! HAPPY TO BE A STEELER FAN!!

    This video made my day! Merry Christmas!

    @Deb…
    Agreed and Agreed again @meattuperello

  21. 0862steelergal says: Dec 22, 2010 4:07 PM

    Awesome…

    Great to be a Steelers Fan

    GO STEELERS!!!!!

    Roethlesburger should have worn a Rudolph nose for a gag. His healed Fast! I’d still look like a raccoon.
