Default Of the 8 Superbowls the Steelers have played in, which was most memorable for you?

This will probably be different for the different age gaps here.

My favorite and most memorable was against the Cards. Ben to 10 is my favorite play of all time, and as I sat there thinking the game could be over, they pulled it off in amazing fashion.

2006 was great as well, as it was the first time I'd gotten to see the Steelers win one, even if it was ugly. I was born in 1981, so I didn't get to experience the "good ol' days".

So...which was your most memorable, and why? Good or bad.

Not XXX.

XLIII had the greatest finishes to both halves. I liked that adrenaline ride the best.

XL was great, for it was the first time in my life that I saw the Steelers win a Super Bowl, but XLIII was a more memorable and exciting game, so I'll say XLIII. The 70s dynasty teams are before my time.

arizona, because we:

1- foiled a cinderella, feel-good story
2- denied history being made (kurt warner being the first qb to win a sb for 2 different teams)
3- ben / santonio winning it in heroic fashion
4- no calls by the refs that whining fans can use as a scapegoat

Seattle was the first win i got to witness live (was born in 79), but it was a little bittersweet for me. My dad was a hardcore seattle fan, and he passed away after that season was over. In a way, I wish he got the chance to see his team win before he passed on.

it was 40 for me. That was the first time I saw the Steelers win the SB. 30 is a close second. I hated that game.

I've heard plenty of fans complain that Harrison didn't break the plane and that Holmes didn't get both feet in bounds.

Wish we had a ranking system for this poll. My first would be 43. Then, probably the second Dallas game.

40 will never be on the radar for me. I have my own personal asterisk for that one.

I was at Super Bowl XLIII, so that has to be #1. Not only did the Steelers win their 6th Lombardi, but I witnessed IMO, the best Super Bowl of all time.
