    I knew about the Steagles, of course, but the Card-Pitts ... not so much!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Card-Pitt

    A merger of the Chicago Cardinals and the Steelers, for one year only (1944). Besides the nick name (The "Car-Pitts" ... they were
    0-10 ), the most interesting thing I learned about them is that (ex-boxer) Art Rooney came out of the owners box to join a brawl on the field that eventually had to be broken up by the police!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    I'm surprised that there wasn't as much emphasis on the history of Card-Pitt in 1944 prior to SBXLIII against the Cardinals (Whis and Grimm vs. their former employers took precendent, I suppose). You hear more about the Steagles prior to the Steelers-Eagles regular season matchup every 4 years than you heard about Card-Pitt prior to the Cardinals-Steelers Super Bowl.
