We had no football team in AZ when I was a kid, I just did not like anyone else, especially the Cowboys and Bears. But my wife is a Steelers fan.

And like most women, I'll bet Troy Polamalu is her favorite Steeler

As long as we are off track here I have a trivia question for you football fans....
Iowa recently applied to the NFL for permission to have a professional football team and they were DENIED. You know why?
Because then they'd have to let Illinois get one....
The Bears still suck!

Ah, interstate football rivalry- its a universal language.
I understand the Packers v Bears one is quite spicy.
Their venue looked nice, I'll say that for them... but I've never seen Lambeau

Yes the Packers / Bears rivalry was a good one, but it has become much less so because the Bears aren't really a good team anymore. It isn't a challenge to beat them.
For a while the Minnesota Vikings were a worthy adversary, while not as old of a team as the Packers and the Bears, at least they were in the playoffs at the end of the year. Then the Vikings hired our old washed up star quarterback Brett Favre, and THAT caused a stir.
The Packers have the Lambeau Leap, a celebration where after a touchdown the receiver jumps into the stands and the fans pat him on the back and congratulate him.
Trivia: Why don't the Vikings have their own version of the Lambeau Leap?
Answer: Because the players would hurt themselves landing on the empty chairs!

Okay, help me with this piece of footy trivia. When I was over, one of my side-trip plans (scrapped) was to drive through some northern Indiana towns on the way to Indy, such as Notre Dame. When mentioning this to some folk, I was told by two different people from two very different states and backgrounds "Oh you wanna go see touchdown Jesus?".
I got some brief explanations but would love to hear yours

You guys are the white car with regards to the direction of this thread!!

Jason is so organised, having an off-thread YT video all ready to go!
I think it may be a testament to the (lack of) quality of my original question that the thread has driven off the road.
But let's face it, all roads lead to football eventually

Not even an orange Wagner hoodie? I think they might sell very well. Everyone would want one on the jobsite. They would say,,,,look, there goes that Wagner guy. And they are saftey color approved!
Certainly a construction fashion staement and great advertising. Come to think of it,,, I think anyone who hits 500 posts should get a free Orange hoodie.

Since I am here this late I might as well say what I think about the original query.
I'd love to see a new type of hoodie. Course you will never get Wagner to admit any MVER out the top of a slab has anything to do with flooring failures and or it is possible to capture them in any sort of qualitative manner that would qualify the readings.
Did I make sense? Oh well, I will edit tomorrow.
I just figured it out. It is the ORANGE KOOLAID that Jason has been sending me. He knows my weakness for ORANGE KOOLAID. And when I stop drinking it I get visions of CaCl domes and MVER's blistering my adhesives. When I drink the ORANGE KOOLAID all I see is deep dark concrete caverns of wet moistness and digital read outs.
Saigon... sh_t; I'm still only in Saigon Oh...the horror, the horror.....
