    Trivia - Rocky Bleier

    Just finished watching "Fighting Back" on ESPN Classic. Cheesy movie (as you all know) but still absolutely cool (hey, it is about the Steelers). Anyway, I have been doing some research about Rocky and found out that 20 was not his original number. In his rookie season he wore the same number he wore at Notre Dame. Do you know what it was? By the time he returned from Vietnam another player had taken his number. Because his rookie season number was no longer available he switched to 20. Do you know who that player was?

    Also, I was amazed to see the number of Steelers who guest starred in the movie. Pretty cool, showing their support for Rocky.
