Steelers Take First Step Toward Detroit

Who WAS Hunter S. Thompson?

At times it looked like the Steelers were playing sandlot ball they were pulling so many trick plays out of their ass. What matters, though, is when the last second clicked off the clock the boys from the 'Burgh has knocked off the hometown Bungels.

Jerome Bettis rolled time after time for short yardage first downs. We don't know yet how many more chances he'll be carrying the ball over the goal line; but it was great seeing him take the ball to the sideline after he scored today. It truly would have been a remarkable performance if he'd completed the option pass he lofted into the endzone.

Seeing the joy of the future Hall of Famer's parents in the stands was something to behold. Amazing they have been there for every game throughout his career. It will be wonderful having them front and center when #36 takes his place among the greatest of the greats in Canton, Ohio.
