Steeler nation .. Will miss u 86
I hear you brutha!
I was raised on the Steelers of the 70's and I felt the same way when "The Greatest Team In The History of Modern Football" began to break apart as one by one all of my heroes retired or moved on.
I know exactly how you feel and I know I have history on my side when I say this, but even though there will never be another Hines Ward, there WILL be plenty of memories yet to fill up the lifetime you have ahead of you.
Back in the day when that great team faded away, I never thought I'd be able to get excited about the Steelers football again.
I was wrong.
