Default This Steeler video has a happy ending

This Steeler video has a happy ending

The Steelers premiered their annual highlights video recently and the team's head of public relations, Dave Lockett, gave a rare promise before anyone in attendance had a chance to view the video titled "Brothers and Champions, the Story of the 2008 Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers."

"I guarantee this movie has a happy ending," Lockett said, tongue firmly in cheek.

Of course, Lockett was right. How could a video about a Super Bowl champion not have a happy ending?

The 23-minute video is different than most in that its production was handled as an NFL matter, not just a Steelers matter. Still, many of the characters remain the same. It was produced by Bethel Park native John Weiss of NFL Films, who just finished his 19th Steelers video. It is narrated by Larry Richert of KDKA Radio and most of the audio clips that accompany game film are from the Steelers radio broadcasts, so Bill Hillgrove and Tunch Ilkin are big players in this film.

The real stars, as you might expect, are the players and coach Mike Tomlin, who won Super Bowl XVIII in only his second year as a head coach. Also among the highlighted players are defensive player of year James Harrison, who returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and a Super Bowl record; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has won two Super Bowls in his last four seasons, and wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who added "Super Bowl XVIII MVP" to his resume.

Most of that, you already knew. While we can still picture Holmes stretching out to catch that last pass, with his toes firmly on the Raymond James Stadium turf, you may not remember that Holmes had already established himself as a reliable target before the big game or the big catch.

The film brings that to life. From Holmes' punt return for a touchdown against Baltimore to his game-winning touchdown catch in overtime against those same Ravens, Holmes showed in the second half of the season that he can be counted on when needed.

The film is a fun frolic back to February.
