1: Disgusting rag waved by Steelers fans at football games, tailgates, and business meetings. Generally left unwashed for "good luck."

2: A synonym for something that is utterly repulsive, idiotic, or represents a lower stratum in human evolution.
Guy 1: Dude, that girl is a major slew, I can't believe you hooked up with her.

Guy 2: I know, terrible towel of a decision. I better get tested asap.

The towel that you jizz into and then hide under your bed and then try to use later when it gets all crusty and yellow.
After a month of missing my terrible towel I found it in the corner under my bed, but when I used it, it rubbed by dick raw because it was so crusty.

A mustard yellow towel created by legendary Steelers radio broadcaster Myron Cope during the 1975 playoff run. Can be seen in any Steelers game, home or away. Teams like the Philadelphia Eagles try to impersonate this towel with cute little dishrags that have advertisers such as "ACME" and "LA Weightoss". These types of teams cant compare to the Steelers awesomeness, and thusly should bow down to a five ringed hand.
"You see the Colts vs Steelers playoff game?"
" Yeah man...those colts fans were pwned by those terrible towels"
"Nice dishrag"
"Thats not a dishrag, its my official 'Eagles rally towel'!"
"Man you Philly fans keep getting gayer by the day."
