That's why the team asked Bettis to run out of the tunnel alone at the opening of the Super Bowl, after which they followed in line. "The idea came from Joey ( Porter )," Ward said. "We beat Denver (in the AFC final) and in Denver we kind of said, 'What would be special for Jerome's run through the tunnel?' We said, 'What better way than to let Jerome run out there and call the boys who helped get him there. And we figured that's what we wanted to do. And it looked good. He ran out there, in his own hometown, Super Bowl, and waved out to all the boys to come join him. That's what it's all about."

You will never see a team be that respectful to one player. EVER!!!!
Love them Steelers!!!
Great story!
