Big Lead Sports Bar



We're just a day away from the NFL playoffs coming to the Steel City. And that's got me fired up. If you're not fired up, we've got a remedy for you. The Mondesi readers were hard at work on short notice sending in their favorite motivational videos to get you ready for a big Steeler game. At this point, I'm going to shut up and let the videos speak for themselves, before adding one last thing: Here we go Steelers, here we go!

Regarding the old AFC Championship intro video...

I think it's safe to say that Mark Seay from the 94 Chargers is a better man than any of us...Jesus.

Ok, I'm coming out of Mondesis House retirement for this post, screw it.

This was an awesome post, it managed to get me fired up and it was also humorous.

But the Renegade/Romo Pick 6 video was just about as good as it gets! I only wish it were a little bit longer so we could hear the entire celebration.

Also, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to show intros for two games (94 AFCC and SB XXX) that we lost!
