2000 Steelers 24 vs Redskins 3

In the final game ever at Three Rivers Stadium, the Steelers terrorize Jeff George and take advantage of 5 Washington turnovers to send the stadium out with style, keeping their slim playoff hopes alive while beating the snot out of Dan Snyder's overpaid Redskins with their $100 million in salaries. Hank Poteat highlights a 17-point 2nd quarter with a 53-yard punt return for a TD, Bettis gains 104 yds on 25 carries and Richard Huntley scores 2 TDs. Farewell, TRS, and thank you for 31 fantastic seasons of Steeler football. A special thanks to Matthew Simon for providing us with a complete recording of this game (our original version was missing the kickoff).

Before the game, a feature on Three Rivers Stadium, Howie Long sits down with Bruce Smith, a segment on how the Redskins will spy on Kordell, and Cris Collinsworth prepares to fly in an F-14 fighter plane. Plus, holiday greetings from the crew of the USS Harry S. Truman and various pieces of trivia about its operation.

(Incidentally, that's why Bradshaw couldn't come to the closing of Three Rivers; he was off the coast of Italy doing the pregame show for some of our naval personnel. I'm sot sure he would have come in any case, but a remote for our military isn't something you can miss without an urgent excuse.)

At halftime, a preview of the next day's Fox pregame show featuring the personnel of the Harry S. Truman. Plus, Pam Oliver interviews Mel Blount, and announcers Dick Stockton and Matt Millen share their memories of Three Rivers. There are clips from Millen's playing days and Stockton's time as a reporter for KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.
