    Default 37 years ago today....

    December 23, 1972 ... The Immaculate Reception against the Raiders.

    Where were you?

    I was sitting on the couch with my dad explaining to me how big this was...

I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    Let's see... I was two and a half years old, so I suspect I was starting to get really excited about Christmas. On another continent. That kinda excuses me, I suspect.

    For those of you who do remember it, this year's Raiders game must be doubly annoying. My sympathies.

    What's annoying was listening to madden whine like a little ***** with a skinned knee everytime he announced a Steeler game.

    I was 7, so I remember it from the aspect that my dad went nutso afterwords and he made me wear my Steelers jersey when we made the rounds of all the relatives' homes that Christmas...

    Madden whinned about that play for years... And for those of you that like to read, I reccomend Dan Rooney's book... It devotes quite a bit to that particular event...

    I was 11 years old and 1972 was the first year I followed the Steelers. While I remember listening to that game.for some reason the A.F.C Championship game against Miami stands out more in my memory.

    That's alright... You get the honor of "oldest so far", and makes me feel better...

    ... Don't worry, selective memory is commonplace, so I've been told...

    I was 14-15 months old at the time, so I would say I was either:

    1-in my crib sleeping or watching the mobile above my bed
    2-eating or,
    3-****ting my diapers, drooling on myself, or some other bodily function babies do at that age.

    Someone needs to email it to madden because he says to this day he has never seen a conclusive view that shows the ball didn't hit the ground.
