First of all let me say I found this site about mid-season and have completely enjoyed "trolling" it for the last few months. Never before have I found a place where true members of the Steeler Nation have such respectful and knowledgeable insight to the team we all love. I have enjoyed evey post and the majority of comments I have read. Thank you all for letting me know that I am not alone in my die-hard devotion to the Men of Steel.
This may ramble a bit, but a am truly hoping someone here can help me. I was born and raised in Colorado and being young (and obviously pretty unifomed) was a Denver Broncos fan. But then a magical event happened; and being so young I can not remember if it was in 1977 or 78 but our beloved Steelers wiped out the Broncos on Monday Night Football (I believe the score was something in the neighborhood of 35-7 or 42-7). Needless to say, a young boy of 5 or 6 became a devoted member of the Nation ever since. Since that time I have rejoiced, cried and been mad as as hell watching the by beloved Steelers win, lose and break my heart.
Now as a grown man I have a son who loves the Steelers as well. In fact, I have taken him on two pilgimmages to the 'burgh. The first was a trip to see the Monday nighter vs. the Ravens in 2005...Jeff Reed field goal at the buzzer and one for one...trips to Super Bowl trophys (not to mention great seats, next to the player exit. Kid got a towel from Ben, gloves from Randle_el, and a glove from J. Harrison...Unbelievable trip). This year we made the trip for the Cowboy game and sat through the 7' wind chill and we are both hoping for two for two...trips to Super Bowls trophys.
Anyway, sorry to go on and on about me and my boy. My real question is: does anyone on the site know where I can get video of that Steelers / Broncos game that converted me. I would really love to show my son how and where the tradition started. I appreciate any help anywhere out here can give.
Again, sorry to be so long winded on my first post, but weird enough I feel like I'm already talkin to family.
