1979: Most painful Super Bowl loss or Pittsburgh beat Dallas in SB 13!

It turned out to be the last post-season game played in the 1970’s between the best two teams of the decade.
Coach Landry’s Cowboys played in the 1971, 1972, 1975, 1978 and 1979 SB’s. They won two of them.
Pittsburgh blossomed in the 1970’s with great draft picks. They played in the 1975, 1976, 1979 and a year later in 1980. They won all 4 SB’s.
Super Bowl 13 went down to the last minute.  
Pittsburgh was up 35-17 but Dallas scored twice and made it 35-31 with seconds left.  The Cowboys tried the onside but Pittsburgh recovered and the game was over.
SB 13 will always be remembered for Jackie Smith dropping a “certain” Cowboys’ TD in the end zone.
It was a great game. I still feel bad for Jackie Smith dropping that pass from Staubach.

A word about February 1

We remember Don Everly who was born in Kentucky on this day in 1937.    He died in August 2021 at the age of 84.  Don and, his late brother Phil were the legendary The Everly Brothers.    Along the way, the brothers became one of the greatest rock acts and their tight 2-part harmonies influenced The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Bee Gees, The Hollies and others.    They had many hits, such as "Wake up little Susie".

We woke up to a terrible report about Columbia.     On this day in 2003, television crews captured Columbia‘s tragic disintegration upon reentering the earth’s atmosphere. All aboard were killed. 

We remember Paul Blair born in Oklahoma on this day in 1944.    Blair played center field for the Orioles, a team that won 2 World Series championships, 4 AL pennants, and 2 division titles.      He was traded to the Yankees and played on the 1977 & 1978 teams that won the World Series.  Blair hit .250 over 17 seasons and won 8 Gold Gloves.    His best season was 1969:   .285, 26 HR & 76 RBI.  Blair died in 2013.    He left us with a lot of memories chasing down those fly balls in center field.     He was great!

"La Boheme" made its debut on this day in 1896.  And we've been watching the story and listening to the music ever since.
