As I grow older, I realize most of my fondest memories are either sports related, or have sports involved somehow or another. The emotions, either negative or positive, leave a lasting impression on us.
I was a wee child in 1976, (shut up, I'm young at heart) living in Sarasota, FL, it was popular to embrace the new expansion team the NFL awarded Tampa Bay. I loved the Bucs, but my heart belonged to the Steelers. Mainly because of 2 people, Lynn Swan and John Stallworth. Swan had so many great catches; it is hard to narrow them down in my memory. But John Stallworth had one that has stuck with me all my life. It was during Super Bowl XIV vs. the LA Rams. Bradshaw threw a rope down the right sidelines, through the out stretched hands of Rod Perry to hit Stallworth, running full speed stretching in a strange yoga like position.
