Those jagoff Patriots fans just couldn't take the win and head back home quietly. On a flight from Pittsburgh to Boston today....this happened.
I'm not sure Pats fans know about the "Curse of Cope". He said for decades "Don't Disrespect the Towel".
There have been players from other teams who forgot, too. Especially the Bengals and Titans, who learned the hard way:
And other recipients of the curse:
- Baltimore Ravens: In September 2008, receiver Derrick Mason jumped on a Towel before the game. The Ravens then lost all 3 games they played against the Steelers, most particularly the AFC Championship, and the Steelers went on to win the Super Bowl.
- Arizona Cardinals: At a rally before the Super Bowl, the mayor of Phoenix blew his nose into a Towel and then threw it on the ground. We all know who won the Super Bowl.
- Detroit Lions: When they faced the Steelers earlier this year and the Steelers were on the precipice of yet another fourth-quarter meltdown, the Lions mascot thought it’d be a great time to “eat” a Terrible Towel. A few seconds later, the Steelers defense’s terrible misfortune from the past few games suddenly disappeared, QB Daunte Culpepper was sacked three times in a row, and the Steelers went on to win the game. I’m sure the Lions will continue to be awful ... but not sure we can pin that one on Myron.
