Pittsburgh Steelers: Just One Side of the Helmet...

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Denver Broncos 28-10 last night on Monday Night Football. But, quite frankly, I could care less about the game. The reason I'm writing this is because there is something about one of those teams that has always bugged the heck out of me. It is the fact that the Steelers only have their helmet logo on ONE side of their helmets. Why just one? Why not both sides like everyone else? Why? Here's why: The Steelers originally wore gold helmets, so their equipment manager only put the decals on one side of the helmet because he wasn't sure how they would look. You know, less work taking only one off if they looked terrible. Anyway, after they changed to black helmets, they continued to apply the insignias to just one side because they had experienced success with only one. A bit of superstition, huh? So even until this day, or Monday night, the Steelers remain as the only NFL team with logos on only one side of their helmets. The end. But it still bugs the heck out of me!
