It was a fight on the field at yesterday’s Steelers-Browns game
, but the real battle took place in the women’s bathroom at Jerome Bettis’ new Pittsburgh restaurant, Grille 36
. At half time, things were not looking so golden for the Steelers, which didn’t sit well with many Pittsburgh fans. In the ladies’ rest room (which, by the way, is a rather, dark shadowy place with not enough mirrors and zero televisions; something to work on, Jerome) a fan decked out in Steelers gear got into a shoving match with a Browns fans. Allegedly, the fight was about line order (“I was here first," "No I was,” and so forth) and who among them had to pee more. But C-Notes, being incredibly perceptive and stuff, knew the fight was not really about the stalls, but rather was the byproduct of 60 plus years of pent-up frustrations. It had to come out some way.
And it did.
A few minutes later though, after both women relieved themselves — and a bit of their fury -- they discovered a commonality: Both were rabid Ohio State fans. And suddenly, they had a common enemy to hate on: Illinois.
All was suddenly well.
After all, nothing brings people together like mutual hatred. -- Rebecca Meiser
