Here's more history for you ratbird fans:

1984: Little did anyone know on December 18th 1983 the Colts had played their final game in Baltimore. Almost after the season ending win at Memorial Stadium; Colts owner Robert Irsay began talking to other cities about moving the club. On February 13th he toured the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis. The Colts also spoke to officials in Phoenix, as the Maryland legislature tried to use eminent domain laws to force the franchise to remain in Maryland. On March 28th Phoenix dropped out of the bidding, at Irsay called up officials in Indiana saying he was on the way. However, he kept the move secret until just after midnight when by cover of darkness on a cold snowy night he used Mayflower moving trucks to pack up the Colts offices, and relocate them in Indianapolis. By the time anyone realized what had happened it was too late to stop.
And you'll be leaving Pittburgh Sunday night the same way, in the cover of night so no one will mock you or shame you. And the great joy will be knowing that as painful as 1984 was for colts fans, it's going to be even more pain for ratbirds fans as they have to watch the Steelers celebrate another trip to the Super Bowl.
