I think this occasion calls for a sticky (and an unsticky of the free agent threads...I think their usefulness has now passed). For the time being, I guess we will keep this and the Planet Tailgate thread at the top of the page until further notice.

Elbert Nickel!! Do I win anything?

Because of the Flight of the Conchords, whenever I hear Elbie Nickel's name, the first thing that pops into my mind is a Racist Dragon (even though it is Albi instead of Elbie...but still).

I'm on here enough each day that changing the title isn't that time consuming for me. I will be out of town for work in August for 4 days & am not sure if I will have access to the internet. Someone may have to fill in those days for me.

This ain't a bad picture of another 94 either. Gotta love a sack of the Ravens' coach's little brother. It sure was satisfying to beat both of those brothers in AFC Championship games.

Man, #90 does not have strong roots. Check out the #90's in Steeler hostory:

Travis Kirschke (04-07),
ErikFlowers (03), Justin Kurpeikis
(01-02), Donnel Thompson (00), Reggie
Lowe (99), Bill Johnson (95-96), Jeff
Zgonina (93-94), Huey Richardson
(91-92), Tyronne Stowe (87-90), Steve
Apke (87), Bob Kohrs (81-85), George
Webster (72-73), Dick Lasse (58), Leon
Jamison (58), John Howle (56)

My favorite, after Kirschke, has to be Tyronne "Stumpy" Stowe. That dude played some mean special teams.

Damn, just did a google search and i can't find a Steelers pic of Stowe. :(

Some #'s are extremely difficult to find anything on. They can't all be #43 or #58.

I still think we have more to choose from, overall, than all other teams......

RB, you're absolutely right. I was at Cleveland Stadium sitting about 20 rows back in the endzone and watched him catch a TD pass from O'Donnell back in '93 (I think). He had soo much potential and flashed it from time to time.

True. Also, some are tongue in cheek. I mean... Gabe Rivera at #69 is somewhat of an inside joke. I thought about putting in Worley at #38.

And it's ironic that Rivera's jersey is right next to the ONLY nameless one in the month, which happens to be also the ONLY jersey number the Steelers have retired.

Hey Acero, how do make those jerseys on the calendar?

I didn't make them, I got them from http://www.jerseydatabase.com. I did a number by team search which spits out all the players from that team to use that number; the listing allows you to click and then view a mockup of the jersey, which is what I grabbed.

I just noticed that registered users can create their own custom calendars right there on the site. Pretty cool. I was trying to embed this sample here, but it won't let me:
http://www.jerseydatabase.com/sharedcal ... 20Calendar (http://www.jerseydatabase.com/sharedcal.php?caltoshow=Steelers%20Calendar)

The jersey from my avatar I got from NFLShop.com using their customize feature.

That's OK. I use to think Franco Harris was Frank O'Harris. And that didn't make sense cause he really doesn't look Irish.


what?............. have you never heard of "Black Irish"? :lol:

No love for Ray Mansfield? :wft You guys are all too young! :evil:

If you've never read this or heard it it's worth the 5 minutes of your life.
Ray Mansfiedl (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1009066/index.htm)

182 consecutive games played...wow!

Nobody ever hung in there any stronger than the old Ranger—Ray Mansfield, center, who still holds the Pittsburgh Steelers' record for consecutive games played (182). Even after retiring from football after the 1976 season, Mansfield remained a warrior. When a man reneged on an agreement to buy a big insurance policy from him, he went back to the man's office six times and finally kicked a hole in his desk. Then he couldn't get his foot out. He was also hard to shake as a blocker; not long ago he ran into Dick Butkus, got right up in the old Chicago Bear's face and said, "Dick, I owned you," and Butkus didn't argue.

Mansfield also set the unofficial Steelers record for hours enjoyed. Until he was sure there was no more conviviality to squeeze out of it, the Ranger would never call it a night. Yet he peacefully became, last week, at 55, the first of the 1970s dynasty Steelers to call it a life.

The Ranger came from the West—when he was born, his family was living in a tent in a labor camp in Bakersfield, Calif. After the Mansfields moved to Kennewick, Wash., Ray beat up all the town bullies, usually because they had picked on one of his eight brothers and sisters. To recount all of Ray's stories about his life just to that point would take most of this magazine. When he began playing football (first at Washington, then for a season with the Philadelphia Eagles and 13 years with the Steelers), his raconteurial repertoire expanded.

He also appeared prominently in other people's stories, and there was always a new one. The night before his funeral, Andy Russell, a linebacker, told one I'd never heard. "One night in training camp," Russell said, "Ray told me, 'It's embarrassing. You've been my friend all these years, and you've never once sneaked out after curfew. Tonight's the night.'

"I said, 'Aw, Ray, I can't be doing that; we've got to play Baltimore tomorrow.'

"The next thing I know, Ray, Jack Lambert and I are stealing through the darkness. Ray is dodging from tree to tree—big, wide Ray, tiptoeing from one skinny little tree to another....

"So we get to this bar, and I can't just keep on drinking, I'll get sick, so I'm sitting there with coffee, and Jack is dancing on the bar with his shirt off, and Ray is arm-wrestling the bartender....

"So I'm the designated driver, and Ray and Jack are in the backseat hitting each other on the arm or something, and here comes a big white horse toward us, right down the middle of the road. I swerve to miss it, and Ray and Jack are outraged: 'You're supposed to be the sober one!' I say, There was a big white horse!' and they're even more outraged: 'We don't see any white horse. And we're the ones drinking!'

"The next day Baltimore was on our one-yard line, about to beat us—it was just an exhibition game—and Lambert came over to me and said, Andy, I think I see the white horse.' "

When the Ranger died, he was looking at one of the world's natural wonders.



His father died laughing, as I thought Ray might one night in my apartment in Pittsburgh in 1973. I spent that season hanging out with the Steelers to write a book. Pete Gent was in town, publicizing North Dallas Forty. Mansfield didn't love Cowboys, but he did love authors and books, and he was having a fine time discussing differences between art and life with Gent, Russell and me, even though he was in great pain. A few days before, he had cut-blocked John Matuszak, causing that enormous Oakland Raider to fall on Ray's neck. Suddenly one of Gent's reflections—something about getting from points A to point B by way of point D—hit the Ranger's funny bone so hard that his top rib separated from his spine completely. He rolled on the couch, alternately laughing and crying. That injury plagued him until he died, but he always spoke of that evening fondly.

Even more than merriment, he enjoyed the Grand Canyon, which he said looked like a cathedral, and where he backpacked often. The last time was with his son, Jimmy, 24, and a pal of Jimmy's. Ray loved camping. In eulogizing him, Russell told the story about Butkus, the one about Ray kicking the desk and one about a night Andy and Ray spent outdoors on the ground. Andy was freezing, "and Ray, who was never cold, said, Andy, you can cuddle.' Let me tell you, that was one warm body."

His blood pressure was way too high. He was still pretty close to his playing weight of 260-something, and he still relished big cigars (he was buried holding one), lots of beer, lots of salt on his food and lots of physical exertion. His older brother and sister had died of congestive heart failure. So did Ray.

He had told Jimmy, "I'm going to die in the Canyon." Along toward evening on their first day of hiking, he told the young men to go on ahead and set up camp. His ankle was bothering him, and he said he'd be along. But he didn't show up. They couldn't look for him in the dark.

Next morning they found him sitting with his back against a big rock, a water bottle in one hand and a disposable camera in the other. He hadn't taken a farewell snapshot; the foil wrapper was still on. But he wore a serene expression, and he was facing a vista that must have been even more breathtaking at sunset. I can't think of anything to add to that. Nobody could tell an old Ranger story as well as the Ranger himself.

:P

Even though I was only 1 year old when he retired, you have to give Mansfield respect as the first in the line of great Steeler centers. Many folks will mentioned Webster, Dawson, and even Hartings, but Ray started it all as the rock in the middle of the line.

Instead of giving Frank the Tank #44, they should have given the TE that we drafted in the 7th round, D.J. Johnson, #44 (I heard that he prefers being called D.J. to David, just like Ziggy over Evander and Sonny over Ra'Shon). They could have also given him one of those amber visors as well. He'd be significantly bigger than the old corner, though.
