Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Pittsburgh Steelers: Heart-Pounding, Jaw-Dropping, and Gut-Wrenching Moments from Pittsburgh Steelers Historyby Matt Fulks, Rocky Bleier
Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Pittsburgh Pirates documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Pirates highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include the impressive run to the Super Bowl in 2006 and the great plays of Ben Roethlisberger, as well as the horrendous years in the 1980s, when the Steelers struggled below .500 three out of four seasons. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.
