Awesome read.

I was kind of disappointed that Hines never brought up the time he about knocked Reed the fuck out. But hey, whatevs.

Reed is one of the few Ravens players I've ever had respect for.

That Ravens–Steelers hate was real. Shoot, you know that. You were probably the most hated out of everybody.

Hines
Hahaha. Yes, I was.


Damn, I love Hines.

Great article.....two prime Steelers-Ravens memories....

Of course, the first was the '08 AFC Championship Game. I was at the Immaculate Reception Game in '72...and Troy's pick-6 rivaled the IR as far at the level of celebration within the stadium.

Secondly, on the opposite end....the '14 Wild Card Playoff. That game was awful, got our asses kicked. I was staying with friends in Carlisle, Pa. that night....so I"m driving across the turnpike, around 1am, stop at the Somerset rest area to get a drink and a snack. The place is FILLED with those purple mother-fuckers, busloads of 'em. I got the fuck outta there. Fuck THEM!!

Couple others....
*2010 Divisional Playoff....yeah, we were down 21-7, but then Renegade brought the stadium to live....was rockin' that night as Steelers came back and Joe Fucco fucked up!!

*Halloween night '05....Steelers win in final minutes on their way to One for the Thumb.

*Oh....also there for the Monday night deluge where Hines did knock Ed Reed the fuck out, and Ben threw what...5 TDs!!

*97 Sunday Nighter....Vinnie T. Heckling Game....but that's a completely different story.

Awesome memories.....Steelers-Ravens.

That’s what we called it. Purple Week. And we hated purple. If at any time you came into our facility wearing purple, you were asked to go home and change. If you came to practice wearing some purple Jordans, they wouldn’t be at your locker when you came back. Somebody would have thrown them in the trash can.


I still to this day hate the color purple for that reason. I tell my lady do not buy purple clothing, It's ugly. haha

That players tribune site is really impressive. Fucking Jeter and all but still very impressive.

Makes the ESPN/Fox/blogoshpere sports journalism scene look like doggiecrap.

Great article. Thanks for sharing.

Don't want to derail this thread, but this comment from Reed stood out to me:
"...if we can prepare like that for the Steelers, we can prepare like that for everybody. And that’s what we did. That’s how we took it to the next level as a team and finally got over the hump and won a Super Bowl."

Hmmm....seems to be lacking in this current bunch of Steelers - they don't prepare like that for everybody.
