My friend Ray tells this joke: How many Pittsburghers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Five – one to screw it in and four to talk about how great the Steelers were in the Seventies. That always makes me laugh because a.) it's true and b.) they were. But this current team is pretty impressive, too. I watched the game on Saturday and, up until that last quarter I had my doubt, but then – WHAM! That's just great fun to watch. I found the video below on You Tube, four quarters in ten minutes. I love it.
The other day I had a guy “friend” me on Facebook because, as he said, “anyone who lists Mel Blount as one of their favorite athlete's is okay with me.” I loved that. I am in the middle of his book, The Cross Burns Brightly right now and I'll write more about that when I finish it.
Joe Theismann's book about it –but I love to watch always hoping for that one breathtaking moment when you can say, “WOW! Wow, wow, wow.” The Steelers have given me a lot of Wow moments over the years and regardless of what happens this weekend I'll keep on loving them. Here we go!
Thanks for reading.
