    Mine was on a cold day in Mile High Stadium, Denver, CO, Saturday, December 16, 1978. It was the heyday of the Steel Curtain and I a native of Pittsburgh was living with my aunt and uncle in Denver, who moved there from the Jeannette, PA area. With my uncle Milty and his buddy Sarge we sat behind the goal post about 20 rows back. I had a $5 bet riding on this game with a schoolmate and had no doubt that our Steelers (13-2) would whomp on the Orange Crush (10-5). Incidentally, we went to the hotel where the Steelers were staying and I got the signature of just about every player on the team the evening before the game. The Steelers took a 21 to 0 lead going into the half and Sarge and I were Euphoric and said it was in the bag with high fives. Uncle Milt prophetically said that the Steelers will come out of the half flat and let the Broncos back into the game as they often did back then. We laughed at the notion and dismissed it. Well, that's just what happened. Denver came back with 17 unanswered points and very late in the game they were driving and with about a minute left in the game they were on about the 5 yard line with 1st and goal. We were biting our nails now as you can imagine. They ran it all 4 times. On 4th and goal from about the 2 yard line they gave it to Preston and Mean Joe met him at the 1 and stood him up and that was the end of it. Wow, that was a great ending to the game. Of course the Steelers beat them again 2 weeks later in the playoffs and then on to meet the Cowboys in Superbowl XIII winning 35-31 in what can arguably be called the greatest Superbowl to date.

    Its easy... Today, I could throw 300yds against the steelers. Ben is playing conservative. The wrs are playing with no sense of urgency. Defense is playing like they don't have a clue.

    I have never been to a Steeler or any other NFL game, but for me the most memorable was the Steelers 75th anniversary game. As a big James Harrison I noticed a good omen when I saw him coming down the steps on his way to the field before the start of the game. I did not know what an omen this was at that time, but was about to find out. James was a one man wrecking crew. He had multiple sacs, forced fumbles and a fumble recovery, an interception and the most memorable play for me was on a punt. Ed Reed took the punt and was just about to clear the edge and run for daylight, when out of nowhere you see him get hit and the ball go flying up many feet into the air only to have the Steelers recover. On the replay it was James who hit him and he layed him OUT. Reed's body was parallel to the ground when he was hit. That same game Ben threw 5 td's in just the 1st half. One of those he had Bart Scott hanging from his shoulders only to shrug him off and toss a touchdown. Talk about insult to injury. I loved that game it will always be one of my favorites of all time.

    As for Superbowls it has to be 43. That game had more twist and turns than the cart full of well endowed cheerleaders on a roller coaster.

    Well I was actually at Super Bowl 43, which will probably forever be the most memorable game I've ever been to. But BEING ENTIRELY HONEST, I have never been in a stadium more electrifying than Heinz Field during the 2010 AFC Divisional Playoff Game vs. the Ravens. Hands down one of the coolest experiences I've ever had.

    Was lucky enough to be at Superbowl 43. Near endzone where Harrison scored on the pick 6! The Santonio catch was on the other end, but of course I never had a doubt he was in.

    I'm currently on a personal streak of 10-0 at the last 10 Steeler games I've been to over the years including this one, and the last time we played the Redskins on MNF in Washington.

    With the Steelers coming to Miami, a couple of memories. 1996 MNF Tomczak to Mills 4th Qtr TD to win 24-17. End zone seats loaded with Steelers fans. 1998, week 3, 90 degrees. 45 yard line 3 rows up from Steelers bench. Had a broken jaw with teeth wired shut, trying to drink beer, drooling like an idiot. Kordell horrible. Lost 21-0. Redemption, 2004. Big Ben's 1st start, Sunday night delay, due to Hurricane Jean. Wind/rain/no problem. The beginning of new era in Pittsburgh. 13-3 win. Season finale 2009 season. Pretty cold day in Florida. 2nd level up from Steelers bench. Saw Ike Taylor KILL Pat White. Poor guy just laid there lifeless. Thankfully, he was ok. Funny story about that play, some co-workers were security on sideline, standing by the area, when my wife asked if they were protecting a crime scene. She was serious.

    Cant remember the exact date, but the MNF game against baltimore when James harrison went berserk and Ben threw for 5 td's (i think) in the first half. Rained like crazy, but who cared? 38-7 final... harrison had 31/2 sacks and two fumbles and an interception. One man wrecking crew.

    2008 AFC Championship--- I will never forget how loud the hit was by Ryan Clark that put Willis McGahee on a stretcher. I was also right in the endzone as Polamalu stormed in to win the game with his Pick 6, also something I will never forget.

    2010 AFC Championship--- I was also in the endzone for Big Play William Gay's scoop and score after Ike Taylor's forced fumble/sack, the stadium erupted as we took a 24-3 into halftime.

    November 16, 2008--- The Steelers were facing the Chargers on a cold and snowy afternoon. It was a defensive battle as Troy Polamalu and James Harrison were playing out of their minds (as they did for the whole 2008 season). Harrison and Lamarr Woodley split a sack for a safety in the endzone and pretty much dominated the line of scrimmage the whole game. Troy had the amazing one handed diving interception that no one can explain, then proceeded to have a defensive touchdown called back on the last play due to a "Illegal forward pass," but I think the refs called it back to keep the final scored a 11-10 because that was the first game ever to end with that score.

    Going to Cincinnati to see the Steelers live for the first time in 1995. Bengals are up something like 21-10 and the Steelers start scoring like crazy, winning 49-31. A Bengals fan sitting next to me, says "You have a nice team there." I said, "I know."
