On This Date . . .

January 18, 1976 the Pittsburgh Steelers won their second Super Bowl, Super Bowl X; and Lynn Swan made the single greatest play in Super Bowl history.

The greatest.

Bar none.

For general information about the game here's the page at Wikipedia; and you can get statistics from the game and a brief narrative at the
NFL's Super Bowl Site.

YouTube offers you an opportunity to watch some of the game, and if you click here you can watch the player introductions, national anthem, and -- amazingly enough -- the opening kickoff which the Steelers do a terrible job of covering.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
