what also is odd is the manner of some of these deaths.

an anti freeze overdose
a weightbar dropping on the neck
getting crushed by a tree
driving head on into a tanker

there is now a bill pending in the Pennsylvania State Legislature to outlaw any former
Steeler coming within 500 yards of any establishment that has a liquor license.

Hard to see another go, R.I.P.
If memory serves correct back in the day those were some pretty big boys, the 300 pounder plus of todays player were only 280 or so then. The players from that era started ,IMO, the legacy of Steelers Smashmouth Football.Those O lineman set the standard, they imposed their will to run on every team. They would line up with those bare arms,in any weather and say, basically "here comes the trap stop us if you can." They were the original group of guys that opposing defenses knew they had better have their lunch packed because it was going to be a long day!! As to that current sig quoting the new Bungle Sam Adams,he could not have carried the jockstraps of these MEN ,stick to making the brew Sam Adams!

You have sunk to a new low, WTF is does this post mean?? You should have been taught that if you have nothing good to say then don't say it at all. this particular post has no place for this kind of B.S.
