Re: SB XIII
If they show Super Bowl X in its entirety (which they should - it at the time was generally regarded as the best SB up to that time) do not miss it - you will not believe the hitting. Hits in that game that were no calls would draw flags or ejections today (Staubach getting pounded - at one point Ernie Holmes clubs Roger's head/Bradshaw getting knocked out/Lambert throwing Harris to the ground after Gerela misses a FG). No penalties on the Steelers in that game.
In last night's rebroadcast of XIII Brodie or Gowdy said in the 2nd Q after Blount intercepted Staubach that a lot of the intensity and hitting in XIII was just a continuation of the bad blood from X.
Enjoyed the rebroadcast of XIII but what the hell happened to the end of the second quarter? Swann runs to the 35 with a minute to go and the next thing I see is the Steelers with teh ball in the 3rd Q.
