Steel Curtain Rising is pleased to share with youa tribute to the old AFC Central.
It aired 20 years ago today, on the occasion of the 1989 Steelers second regular season game against the rival Houston Oilers.
Narrated by the legendary Pete Axethelm, one of the men who helped put ESPN’s NFL GameDay on the map prior to his untimely death in the early 1990’s.
So sit back and take two and a half minutes to revel and reminisce about the days when division rivalries didn’t simply represent rallying points for the fans, but real blood vendetta’s for the players.
No wonder Tunch Ilkin found his way to broadcasting. Is there any better way to describe Jerry Glanville than as a “water moccasin?”
We think not.
