Pittsburgh Steelers Plates for Sale at Mesa Wal-Mart

Do you see anything wrong with this display of Cardinals memorabilia at the front of the Wal-Mart at Country Club and Baseline in Mesa? Yes, that's right, there's a bunch of Steelers shit on it. The week before the Super Bowl. In metro Phoenix.

Now this is Wal-Mart, so if anyone in town should be catering to white-trash Steelers fans it's them. And this particular Wal-Mart is in Mesa, so that's a consideration as well.

Really, the joke's on them. What Steelers fan is going to eat off plates? Trust me, there's no faster way to go broke in Pittsburgh than selling plates, toothpaste, or a dating service that's not geared toward matching up cousins. This display was next to the pharmacy, though, so there's a chance Steelers fans will just see the logo and grab these mysterious circle thingies along with the usual: as many boxes of Claritin-D as they can get their paws on.
