Steelers Lounge Podcast #35.1: Steelers-Packers Preview With Bruce Ciskie

Everything is bigger this week: the state (thanks, Texas!), the stadium (thanks, Jerry’s toupee!), more press conferences, more dumb questions from reporters who don’t regularly cover football (and almost as many from those who do), more … well, everything. Which is why we’re treating you fine folks to another podcast. That’s right, back to back. (You can thank us by telling a friend, subscribing via iTunes, or making a generous donation.)

Back on Earth: Adam and I spoke with Bruce Ciskie, FanHouse colleague (for another month!), Sports Director at Red Rock Radio in Duluth, MN, and the play-by-play voice for University of Minnesota Duluth men’s hockey. Bruce also happens to be a hardcore Packers fan. The best part (other than the insights from the other side): Ciskie’s radio voice brings a level of professionalism to the shown that it was so desperately lacking. (Hey, it’s SUPER BOWL WEEK — we pulled out all the stops.)

Seriously, it’s well worth your time if for no other reason than we accidentally stumble across one of the recurring themes of the week: these teams, towns and fans are so similar that it’s impossible not to spontaneously bust out in a moving rendition of “Kumbaya.” (Okay, that didn’t happen … but it could have.)

    Good stuff here. I am a Packer fan as well but I still love the Steelers because I think they are the AFC equivalent of the Packers. Great, loyal fans. Blue collar regions of the country. Great stadiums and a great tradition and history. It easy to like the Steelers. I probably would cheer for them in a Super Bowl in most cases, just not this Sunday.

      Nathan, I think good sportsmanship amongst fans is a good thing. Somewhere along the line, many fans have lost their ability to show basic respect for each other’s teams. It’s regrettable.

      I hope we both see a great game on Sunday, whatever the outcome…

        “many fans have lost their ability to show basic respect for each other’s teams”

        No one here, of course.

    Hey, guys. Nice show, as always. You’re doing great, but try to teach yourselves to speak more s-l-o-w-l-y. This ain’t the “Gilmore Girls.”

      I am extremely guilty of this.
