--Mean Joe Greene will be at Heinz Field on Sunday to accept his Clio award for creative excellence in advertising. And yes, it's a little late.

Greene won the award in 1979 but wasn’t available to accept the award at the time, and never received the hardware over the past 30 years. Coca-Cola recently secured the trophy and is presenting it to Greene in the special pre-game ceremony with Tommy Okon, the boy in the commercial who famously offered Joe his Coke. As part of the event, Greene and Okon will reunite for the first time in years.

Any word why Dameshek left ESPN. Was he canned?

Glad there is another avenue for him.
