Episode Summary

January 16, 1979
The Super Bowl is next week, but there is still football to be talked about. The Los Angeles Rams and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be battling next week to determine the winner of Super Bowl XIV, and the new champions of the football world. Len and Nick talk to players from both sides and see how much of an honor it is to be a part of football's best event. For the Rams, they are excited that the game is taking place near their home stadium in L.A. Len asks if being really close to home is an advantage for the Rams, and the players said "yes it very much is. Having the home fans behind you is always important to us. It makes us want to play harder and better to appease our fan-base." On the Steelers side of things, Nick talks with members of the Steel Curtain, Jack Lambert, Joe Greene, and Jack Hamm. They realize the pressures of the Super Bowl for they have all been part of 3 Super Bowl titles in the '70s, and it would be nice to get a 4th one also, something that has never been done in the Super Bowl era. Also, the Steelers realize that they are playing practically in their opponents backyard, so they know that there will be a lot of Rams fans in attendance, but they won't let that stop them form completing the important task ahead, and that's getting Super Bowl #4 for the city of Pittsburgh.moreless
