They do take football real serious in Pa I guess.
We do take our football seriously. So do a lot of other Americans. Some on here defend the kid only because the Steelers might have beat their team during the reg. season or playoffs. It may seem trivial, but a pro sports team gives a city a lot of it's identity.The same people who chastise the teacher would not chastise the people who would object to a person bringing an Iranian flag to a pro-USA rally.
The kid was obviously looking to stir the pot a little. When he got the reaction he was looking for he couldn't handle it.
