Probably in my LR in the Bronx watching. I was 6. I've loved football for as long as I can remember.

I was 13 years old, and watching the game with friends.........I don't really remember much about it though. My dad didn't watch sports....he was a fisherman.

I was 13, too, but home-games weren't shown in those-days within 50 miles (? ) of the site, so I was listening to the game on my parent's console-model stereo in the dining-room with my dad:
we had considered getting a hotel-room in Youngstown or Altoona that day, just to watch the game, but decided against it that morning.

WIIC/Channel-11 showed the game, in it's entirety, the next morning, before the Browns/Dolphs game:
we disconnected the phone-lines before the kick-off.....
:wink02:

When Stabler scrambled 30 yards for the go-ahead score, my dad liked-to kill himself, but we remained vigilante, and continued listening:
watching that video, I am reminded how-much I liked the end-zones painted Bright Yellow with the 'Steelers' logo across it, with the simple 'AFC' -logo in the corners, and how the end-zones would sometimes be decorated with Black hypercycloids from sideline-to-sideline for various games.....

I don't remember much about the game at the time it was being played considering I was 3 months old at the time.

I was 2. I'm sure I enjoyed it if only I could remember it. :smile:

I was 3 at the time. But after watching replays of that game I have always said I would have needed medical attention after that play.:flap:

3 years old and on the cusp of becoming a die hard Steeler fan. Brings tears to my eyes whenever I watch it....

I was 21 months old wearing a Washington Redskins coat... Just like my daddy's!

However, a couple years later... we rooted for the Steelers the first time against Dallas in the SB!

Well... it stuck!
