…and is there going to be a sea of Terrible Towel waving Black and Gold fanatics in Canton Ohio this summer or what? Congratulations to former Steelers Safety Troy Palamalu sometimes affectionately pronounced as “Pah-lama-lou” as he joins his former head coach Bill Cowher and 4 time Super bowl winning Safety Donnie Shell in being forever enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And arguably their could have been another joining this years class but once again former Steelers Guard Alan Faneca got past over but this time for another Guard, Steve Hutchinson who has some nice credentials. He was a first round draft choice for the Seattle Seahawks, seven time Pro Bowler, five time All Pro First Team and two time All Pro second team and made it to Super bowl XL but the ironic part is the opponent they faced that day was the Pittsburgh Steelers who’s offensive guard Alan Faneca was responsible for one of the longest touchdown runs in Super Bowl history. On the second play of the second half, Faneca made the key block to spring running back Willie Parker for a 75 yard second half opening drive touchdown and the longest touchdown run in Super Bowl history. That held up until Steelers Defensive back James Harrison returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown as time ran out in the first half of the Steelers eventual win over Arizona in Super bowl XLIII. Faneca was also a first round draft pick, made the pro bowl nine times and eight All Pro selections and one Super bowl Ring which Hutchinson didn’t get that day in Super bowl XL. So, yeah its probably the 1st time that one team had three players being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the same class but arguably it should have been four representing the Black and Gold this Summer in Canton Ohio.
