Like a good Burgher should …

When neighbors called Jenni Etzel at work about a fire at her Irwin apartment, her thoughts focused on the safety of her 9-year-old black Labrador retriever and her Steelers memorabilia.

It’s not the memories. It’s not the photos or the birth certificates or the important papers or the treasured gifts received over the years, or the cash in the mattress or any number of irreplaceables.

It’s the Steelers stuff she’s worried about, people!

That’s a good Burgher.

Of course, had this happened to me and had I been home, I’d probably grab my autographed Franco Harris jersey too. I’m a good Burgher you see.

    If fire destroyed my Walter Abercrombie and Frank Pollard Collectible Plates from the Franklin Mint … I’d go into a deep depression.

    If my set of McDonald’s Super Bowl drinking glasses melted, I would cry.

    If my Craig Colquitt salt & pepper shakers were damaged, I might have to jump off of a Mt. Washington overlook!

    I once told Randy Grossman about the existence of an official Randy Grossman Hardee’s plastic cup that lives in my parents’ laundry room and has been half-full of crusty, rock-hard “Tide” since the mid-70’s. He had no reaction whatsoever.
