Off Topic #2: The Steelers

The ruggedly handsome Mr. Jack Lambert
I grew up in Western Pennsylvania so I've been a Steelers fan since I was old enough to know what football is.  It wasn't until I became an adult that I finally got to see the Steelers win the Vince Lombardi trophy in 2005 and then again in 2008.  In my childhood I was regaled with tales of the legendary 1970s Steelers defense which helped win the team four Super Bowls and establish a football dynasty, and I always wished I had been alive to see those legends in action.  Here's a video of one of those titans of yore, Jack Lambert, who embodies the tenacity and grittiness of those 1970s Pittsburgh Steelers.

I don't think the Steelers are going to win today but I hope I'm wrong. I also hope that everybody has an enjoyable Super Bowl Sunday.  Any predictions?

You could have said absoulutely any NFL team then and I would have been oblivious. We used to get stuff like basketball, hockey and American football it on a few channels over here but nobody wanted to watch it (myself included) so they took it off.

Sport is massive over here though, if they tried to take rubgy or football (soccer) of the air, there would be riots and football hooligans burning places down. Maybe my country is a little too passionate?

Steelers fan here, and surprisingly I'm living 30 minutes from the Wis. border! Of course, Illinois for the most part will be rooting for the Steelers so it's not too bad! Go Black and Gold!

I'm more of a baseball fan, what little football I watch is usually limited to when a bet is down, but I thank you for the post. A very well done and informative piece of sports history.
