Hail to The Bus!!
Congratulations to former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis upon his election yesterday to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. No one can argue (although some no doubt will), I believe, that he is a most worthy addition to the Hall of Fame in Canton.
I won't list all the stats and and accomplishments. You can find those easily enough elsewhere. I saw him play, and that is all I need to know about him.
The picture above, of Jerome scoring a touchdown while flattening Brian Urlacher in the snow at Heinz Field as the Steelers began their Super Bowl run in 2005 is the play that most typifies Jerome Bettis as a football player, and it is how I will always remember him.
Well done, Jerome Bettis.
