Great read, 'Mongol. Thanks for posting it. I just can't reconcile this image of Lambert in my mind, though:

Quote:
He was a shrimp as a high school freshman and sophomore, with a cute blond crew cut. "We had a flower shop," his mother says, "and one Easter we dressed him as the Easter bunny and made him deliver flowers. He was disgusted, but he looked so cute. He said, 'Never again.' "

My favorite part was
Quote:
"I was a Browns fan. All the kids in the area were Browns fans," he says. "We were only a couple of miles from Hiram College, where the Browns trained in the summer. Jim Brown was everyone's favorite player, I remember chasing him one time to get an autograph, running after his car, a green Cadillac. I even remember the license plate, JB832. I finally did get it. I'll never turn down a kid for an autograph, but first he's got to say 'Please.' "

Man I wish I was old enough to have seen him play. I've watched the videos of him on youtube and I don't think I've ever seen another player with that level of intensity.

Good artical. That period of time was magical for the NFL. Lambert, and the 70's Steelers were definitely something special. That portate of Lambert epitomizes what football should be, but never will be again...... I sure do miss it.

My all time favorite player...much less my favorite Steeler of all time.

Thanks for the article.

My favorite play by Lambert of all time was him body slamming Cliff Harris, (Cowboys safety) after Harris mocked the Steelers kicker
for missing two field goal in the Super Bowl.
