    Let's see...

    The orignal elephant I had came from a GOP website.
    Baghdad Bob came from http://www.welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com/ .
    The current avatar from the Boondocks was taken from the official website. It wouldn't let me right-click to save ("No, brother, you got to draw your OWN!") but that feature was quickly defeated by Windows XP's pop-up toolbar that let me save it.

    Here are a few sites to look at:

    http://www.steelers.com

    http://football.espn.go.com/nfl/index

    http://nfl.com/teams/news/PIT

    For regular avatars:

    http://www.hotavatars.com/

    http://www.nutrocker.co.uk/animatedgifs.html

    Just a couple - but try typing in "free avatars" at a search engine and you'll find plenty!

    ** The pictures on the Steelers sites are most likely copyrighted/trademarked. Thousands of people use them though, they won't frown on a fan using them as avatars. They get pissed when you reproduce them on a site that is selling something **

    Thanks for the links... I'll have to take a look around and find one that suits me. I feel so.... naked.... without one. LOL.

    Thanks Creek... If I find one that needs re-sized, I'll definitely let ya know.

    I was reading another message board (snopes.com if you're curious) and someone on there had this one. I liked it so I stole it.
