I was in the stands at the Rose Bowl for the Stallworth catch. We were surrounded by Rams fans. It was great!

Hell yeah. If I had a TARDIS, I would go back and catch some 70's Steelers before saving the planet. Must have been incredible times.

My friends brought 3 cases of Iron City with the Steelers on the can. We were selling them on the road to the Rose Bowl, $1 a can for Steelers fans, $10 a can for Rams fans. People were actually giving us $10. That game was tremendous.

As a fan who started watching the Steelers in the early 1960s, you bet the 70s were great. The Steelers and the Pirates made our city feel good about itself when the economy was going to hell.

Gotta toss a spliff to Santonio Holmes.

Edit. updated

And although these two Super Bowl catches were not for a touchdown, they are both worthy. Some love for the Great Lynn Swann.


We threw from deep in our own territory on the first Swann catch.

Our WRs were more dynamic than the Cryboys WRs.

Lynn Swann = Greatness. SBX MVP

My uncle (and now my aunt, since he passed) had/has a huge collection of that Steelers memorabilia, and gave some of those cans for my TV room a few years ago. Get comments from fellow Steelers brethren all the time. Can believe it about the time period in the city, too. My cousin Bill was there from the 60's on through, and he would definitely agree.

For me I think it would have to be either Willie Parker’s 75 yard TD run or El’s pass to Ward.

While Harrison’s play was more spectacular and Holmes catch was do or die clutch, there was just SOOOOOOO much pent up emotion after waiting 27 years since the last Super Bowl win to go with all those near misses of the Cowher era.

I was beyond pumped when Parker ripped off that run.

The Randle El to Hines Ward throw and the Fast Willie breakaway were great memories for me as well. Am I correct to assume you are too young to remember the Stallworth catch?


Not too young to remember. Just too young to be super passionate about it.

I was like 8 when he caught that. My dad was a driver for UPS at the time. Had a SB party with the other drivers. I remember the night.

SB XL to me has been the most special. That gap between the Rams SB win and the Seattle win was a LOOOOOONG one.

The Cardinals win was awesome as well but was more icing on the cake where XL was the cake.

For me at least.

All the vids in this thread are great. Thanks for posting.

The stallworth catch was a c*nt hair away from being batted away. I was resigned to the fact they were going to lose that game against the rams, but they came through. It made it even more delicious.

My pleasure Cor-Ten, and I agree about Rams game.

Here’s a 3-minute video of Super Bowl XL against the Seahawks. Featuring:

-Fast Willie Parker’s 75 yard TD Run, which to this day is the longest Super Bowl Run in history, surpassing Marcus Allen’s 74 yard run in XVIII.

-Antwaan Randle El pass to Hines Ward for a 43 yard dagger TD.
