Because, while that AFCCG loss was painful (like a kick to the crotch), for us older folk, the 1994 AFCCG loss was PAINFUL (like sliding down a railing... made of hacksaws).
I'm 24, but grew up in a diehard clan of NUTS for the Steelers. I was at a bar with my dad, I was only 6 years old but remember the game. I remember my dad being on the verge of tears. The week before, my dad busted his leg trying to get Kevin Green's autograph for me in the parking lot and he slipped on ice.
My uncle, who went to the game, came home with literally handfuls of Terrible Towels. He said after that gutwrenching loss, there were thousands of Terrible Towels left behind and he just picked up as many as they could.
Probably the most painful loss in Steelers history.
