Are you following the Super Banter? Jay DeMerit and Ben Zemanski have thrown down the gauntlet on Twitter ahead of Sunday’s Big Game, Super Bowl XLV in Dallas.
Vancouver Whitecaps defender DeMerit is a Green Bay native and wears his Cheesehead with pride. Chivas USA midfielder Zemanski was born in Pittsburgh and is a proud member of Steeler Nation.
Here are some of the latest highlights from their back-and-forth:
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 trying to figure out what's so terrible about the Steelers "terrible towels"? #snugglefresh
zmnsk21: @D6MERIT Mean Joe Greene http://twitpic.com/3vnbi7 "The Terrible Towel is poised to strike!"
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 I think it was just to dry tears.. Nitschke never would've had anything to do with a towel in all of its terribleness..
zmnsk21: @D6MERIT So once Steel fans made dish rags TerribleTowels, is that when Pack faithful went 2 fridge 2 sport a slice of Swiss?
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 Yes, because we were all at superbowl parties and needed more cheese for our crackers. #cheddarisbettar.
D6MERIT: Foam cheesehead fact: If you turn it upside down, the inside shape holds 3 beers and a bowl of chips @zmnsk21 what does the towel do? #mop
zmnsk21: @D6MERIT Functionality.. Some believe it curses any team that disrespects it. Just ask the Titans, Bengals, or Mayor of AZ
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 that's still not a function.. That's a belief, and the Pack has that in abundance.. #lambeaumagic
zmnsk21: @D6MERIT You sure you don't want to rock @tpolamalu 's do?
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 I don't have that kind of curl, I'm more of an @ClayMatthews52, Thor, kind of guy.. #suave
zmnsk21: @D6MERIT All you need is some Head & Shoulders shampoo if you change your mind
D6MERIT: @zmnsk21 haha the only thing that "is head & shoulders" is the Pack (insert here) above the Steel
