Default Steelers DVD

Does anyone have the New Steelers DVD that just came out?? I saw a blurb on KDKA about Hines signing them at ****s Sporting Goods. I was just curious as to how good it is....

There was a bomb threat tonight at the Lowe's Theatre where the players, family and friends were watching the DVD tonight. The theatre was evacuated and there was no bomb detected.

Just reported tonight on FSN Pittsburgh. I figured I would put in this thread since I felt it was not worth making a separate thread pertaining to the incident.

I thought the DVD would pretty much focus on the Super Bowl, but the main section of the DVD I flipped through is a review of the season in its entirety: opens with excerpts from playoff disappointments past (Chargers, Dallas, Denver, New England I & II), cuts to Hines crying at the press conference when he thought Jerome was done after New England II, then provides Harry Kalas narrated highlights of each game (basically somewhat longer versions of the game clips you can watch online on NFL.com each week, with longer excerpts for the playoffs). Since the Super Bowl was not a game for the ages in terms of the quality of the game that is fine with me.

Have not watched the add-ons, which include the NFL Netwok Game of the Week highlights of the Colts-Steelers playoff game, which was excellent.

Seems like a decent product for the money spent, although there is little there you could not have seen for free online at NFL.com or on NFL Network at one time or another. When it comes to packaging and selling its product, it's a cut & paste world for the NFL.

Minor irritant - when you start the DVD you first run through 2 f***ing commercials for a Bruce Willis movie and some other movie I will never watch - NFL does not miss a trick when it comes to squeezing out every $, which probably explains why the CBA negotiations are such a train wreck.

Since I don't get NFL Network, I haven't seen most of that material. A friend did give me a copy of the Colts GOTW though. I've watched it several times. Very well done.

For some reason when I see their one coach( the big fat one who says "We have to keep fighting these people.") I think of the one Stooge Joe (or was it Curly Joe) that from the 3 Stooges. Not the original Curly but the character played by Joe Besser.

Where did these DVDs come from? The special SI offer, or was this available from/in stores? I can't wait to see mine.

When I go back and watch the Colts-Steelers NFL Game of the Week on the DVD, I will check again, but I recall there were two very fat coaches for the Colts. I'm not talking stocky, I'm talking morbid obese, what appeared to be north of 300 pounds fat.
