Last month we were in Pittsburgh for a family reunion. I hit Monroeville mall looking for Steelers stuff as usual. At a picture/paintings store I found a bunch of 8x10 prints for $5 each. I bought several and soon I hope to have them framed.

This one is my favorite though. I just finished scanning it into the computer and editting it to create this 1280x1024 sized wallpaper.

It's not a shot of the actually hit and run by the Bus, but the anticipation of the hit is what grabbed me about this pic. Knowing Urlacher is going to get run over makes this pic special to me. I smile each time I see it.

If anyone wants this resized to 1024x768 just let me know. I can do it easily. Or... I can also post up the huge raw file from the scan and then you can edit it from there.

Enjoy! :cool:


EDIT:: Sorry about the foil sticker on the bottom right. I thought about pulling it off, but decided not to for fear of damaging the print.

I'm gonna redo it!! I got that damn sticker off without damaging the print!

It kept drawing my eye away fromt he focus of the picture.

Give me a few minutes and I'll post up the new version.

Thanks for the pic! I have the black/white picture with Urlacher just landing on his back and the Bus plowing throuh him if you're interested. I'm not sure of the dimensions, it's a decent size, not a big one though.

ack.... The more I look at this pic the more I wonder if it is from that touchdown run where he ran over Urlacher. I'm gonna have to look at the game footage and see if it matches this pic. Still... I love seeing Jerome run.

Well after seeing the b/w/ pic I can say for sure that my pic is not of that touchdown play. However... I still see that play in my head when I look at this pic.

I'm not sure how to get it in a higher a resolution, maybe PisnNapalm can help with that one.

If you tried to blow it up in size it will get blurry. Not much you can do with it to make it bigger and still look good.

Here is a higher resolution of the image in color, but it's more like a painting than an actual photo... http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/6351/2005pitvchibettis21024water6ex.jpg

judging by the gaping hole makes me think this is the run where he busts his longest of the day and gets run out of bounds down on the left..

I don't think that was the play because that happened later in the game and it was getting dark by then, plus you couldn't see the field because of all the snow.

Ok well I popped in the super bowl dvd and watched the bears game and although the "snow tires" run looked similar the pic, it is not from that run nor the goal line TD thru Urlacher..seems like you will need to see extended coverage of the game to figure it out..
