The Bus Stops At The Hall of Fame

  • by


The state of Ohio may belong to the Browns and Bengals but the city of Canton certainly belongs to Steeler Nation.

If you’ve never been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, it’s something that belongs on any sports fans’ Bucket List. It may not hold the almost mythic reverence associated with Cooperstown but as someone who enjoys frequenting museums of all types, it’s an experience second to none. Of course, the highlight is the collection of busts representing each inductee. Doesn’t hurt that you can’t take three steps in that room without coming across a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Most of the Steelers in the Hall come from the Steel Dynasty of the 1970s. There have been a few more members of the Black and Gold enshrined since then but generally speaking we have yet to get to the guys responsible for our most recent run of glory. Until now, that is. And how fitting that the first man inducted from this era is Jerome Bettis.Read More »The Bus Stops At The Hall of Fame

Jerome Bettis Finalist (Again) For Hall Of Fame

NFL: AUG 14 Steelers v Bills

Welcome to Jerome Bettis week here on TotesStillers!

On Tuesday, I mentioned the Bus’s near fatal mistake against the Indianapolis Colts. Thankfully, our last image of Bettis wasn’t him sitting glumly on the sideline after a brainfart of epic proportions but rather him hoisting the Lombardi Trophy aloft after the Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. It was a storybook ending for a fantastic career. With his playing days behind him, there is now only one more honor for Bettis to attain.

Will this be the year Jerome Bettis is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame?Read More »Jerome Bettis Finalist (Again) For Hall Of Fame

…Walk into a bar.  The bartender looks up and says, “What is this? A joke?”

Actually, this is serious business.  I get emails.  A long time ago on a site that blows now, I got an email from a guy by the name of John Butler.  The son of former [intlink id=”125″ type=”category”]Pittsburgh Steelers[/intlink] cornerback Jack Butler, he created a website to promote his father’s candidacy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Well, it looks like his hard work has finally paid off as the NFL’s Veteran Committee named Jack Butler one of their two nominees for the HOF.
