I just heard about this last night from some friends that are Steeler fans. File this under "strange but True"
 

Story Link



Terry O'Neill, 50, of Pittsburgh, was watching the game at a bar and had a heart attack seconds after Jerome Bettis fumbled trying to score from the 2-yard line late in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger prevented the Colts' Nick Harper from returning the recovered ball for a touchdown and the Steelers hung on for a 21-18 win.

O'Neill said Bettis is his hero.

"I wasn't upset that the Steelers might lose," he said. "I was upset because I didn't want to see him end his career like that. A guy like that deserves better. I guess it was a little too much for me to handle."

I heard about this too. That has to be worthy of some game tickets or something. Now that's diehard. At least they won, or else that would have to be the worst day ever for any sports fan.
