Yinzers Are Having EPIC MELTDOWNS Over The Possibility Of Michael Vick Being Signed By The Pittsburgh Steelers
List of things Steelers fans love: Waving towels, defending Ben Roethlisberger’s innocence, wearing crocs with socks, Wiz Khalifa’s 2009 – 2011 discography, 44-oz refillable Sheetz fountain soda mugs, whining, and talking about smug, pretentious code of honor bullshit called “The Steeler Way.” List of things Steelers hate: The Baltimore Ravens, The City Of Philadelphia, leaving Froggyland, people who bring up the fact that Yinzer-hero James Harrison beat his girlfriend, putting on shirts that aren’t wifebeaters at Raystown Lake in the summer, and Michael Vick, apparently.
Today news broke that Michael Vick is meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a possible backup to Ben Roethlisberger after Bruce Gradkowski dislocated a finger during a pre-season game against the Packers.
Former Jets' QB Michael Vick is on his way to Pittsburgh to meet with the Steelers, league source told ESPN.

This caused black and gold-loving Yinzers on Twitter to melt down like a gooey bottle of Heinz in the sun on a warm summer day. The melts of a convicted dog-killer playing for the Steelers are very, very real. Some people are even threatening to burn their jerseys and have their Steel City tattoos removed, which is next to pretty close to renouncing religion in Western Pennsylvania.
"I'll burn my stillerz gear in my yard and i'll remove my tattoo from my leg" on 93.7 The Fan right now. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The best part about these threats are that he hasn’t even been signed yet. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
If he’s signed, stay tuned for Steelers superfan Snoop Dogg weighing in on Instagram. Story developing.
Update: COMMENCE THE BURNING!
Steelers sign Vick
