Re: Meeting Joe Greene
That's a great story and thanks for sharing!
"Mean" Joe Greene,what memories that brings back,along with the whole Steel Curtain mystique,those were very special times indeed.I'd heard that the "Mean" nickname applied to only on the field of play and so your story just cements that belief in my mind.
Too bad Joe didn't have a Steelers jersey to hand you,like in that famous commercial years back.hehehe.
When I hear Joe Greene it reminds me of the time when Lynn Swann had just taken a big hit and was lying on the field of play so Joe Greene comes over and picks up ynn andtakes him over to the sidelines.Most everybody thought that Joe just thought that much of Lynn,but Lynn said he did that because he didn't want the team to lose a time-out.hehehe.
The Pittsburgh,aka Blitzburgh,Steelers forever!!!
