The mother of Washington Redskins punter Tress Way made a massive mistake on September 12, when she burned the Pittsburgh Steelers legendary Terrible Towel. Steelers fans warned Mrs. Way that she’s now cursed the Redskins, and herself, for the move. Click through to find out why, and see the fans’ warnings after the jump!
Tress Way‘s mother made a big mistake, HUGE. The curse of the Terrible Towel is very real, and very, well, terrible. Let’s break it down. The Pittsburg Steelers have a team towel that fans wave in the stands during all of their games, both at home at Heinz Field and at away games. It’s a major part of the Steelers culture. And to disrespect the towel? Well, let’s just say that it doesn’t end well for the players or teams who dare to do so.
Now the mom of Washington Redskins punter Tress had all the best intentions in burning the Terrible Towel. She apparently saw that burning the towel was a way to get back at the Steelers, and sent her baby a wacky “good luck and I love you” text before his September 12 game.
Got the "good luck and I love you" text from mom and dad. Only this time there was something extra…. HTTR pic.twitter.com/hFPYGqti1C

It included a video in which she had pinned up a poster of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, with a banner that said “terrible” over his crotch. The camera panned over all her Redskins-themed party supplies (cute!), and then went outside, where she was burning the flag and laughing. “Get ready for Monday Night Football!” she said. Steelers fans tweeted to Tress, after he posted the video, that the Redskins were about to be cursed:

We’re pretty sure Tress’ mom is seriously regretting burning the Terrible Towel right about now. The Steelers totally creamed the Redskins during the September 12 game, 38 to 16. The curse is real! Hopefully this doesn’t affect Tress’ career as a whole, now!
