"Then one day [Limbaugh] was talking about football and he was a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan at the time, talking about Terry Bradshaw and the glory days. He made a comment. He said, 'If you want to see America at its best, if you've never been, go to an NFL football game,'" recalls Muller.Muller says his decision never to attend another NFL game is taking a toll on his family, but he's sticking to his guns, er, assault rifles.
"I went home, and I said, 'Honey, let's go to an NFL football game. We went and saw our first Kansas City Chiefs game, on Rush's advice. It was so incredible. It's moving. We made a decision about our finances, and we decided that if we gave up everything in our life at the time we could buy two season tickets, no more dinners out, nothing. We became season ticket holders."
