Great Stuff!--Every Steelers Fan Needs This
on November 20, 2009
"NFL: America's Game--Pittsburgh Steelers: The Story of Six Championships" has a singular distinction for me. It is the FIRST sports-related DVD that I have EVER bought, and nearly the first sports-related item of any kind. I'm not really a sports fan--I don't even have ESPN! However, as a native Pittsburgher, I do watch Steelers games whenever I can. So I happened to be wandering through Sam's Club one day and spotted this DVD on display at the end of an aisle (see, product placement does work). The brilliant yellow-and-black package practically leaped off the shelf at me. I picked one up and read the blurb on the back. It looked pretty interesting--a set of 6 DVDs covering each of the Steelers' Super-Bowl-winning seasons from 1974 through 2008, with game highlights, coach and player interviews, etc. So I ordered it from Amazon (the price was a little better, plus no sales tax--a no-brainer).
All I can say is "Wow!" This is one of the slickest, best-produced, most remarkable documentary DVD sets that I've seen in many years. Each season gets about an hour of coverage, with a 45-minute-or-so feature program plus 10 or 15 minutes of special features. The set is everything I hoped for and then some--fascinating archival game and training footage, rare photographs, relevant interviews, outstanding narration, vibrant transfers, and on, and on. The quality, production values and sheer amount of information presented are outstanding. I haven't even watched all six seasons yet, and I'm still completely enthralled. What a great buy!
If you're a Steelers fan and own a DVD player, you should buy this set. Oh, and make sure you pick up a Terrible Towel for Super Bowl XLIV...(or XLV or XLVI...).
