SIXBURGH: Unveiled

Today the Steelers unveiled the 6th Column in the Great Hall at Heinz Field. For those of you who haven't been inside the Great Hall, there are six of these beasts:

Lombardi was hidden from view to start.

All six columns. Pretty awesome sight.

The guy in the white Ward jersey on the corner was going nuts. He actually got to take the black veil home with him. Only in Steelers Nation is the black sheet that covered the Super Bowl trophy a coveted possession. No doubt that becomes a family heirloom.

No description necessary.

In the middle of the great hall, a display set up with the other 5 on a steel beam.

Another shot of the first 5.

The only place in the world where 6 Lombardi Trophies are displayed together.

And now for some other pictures from the day:
Ever wonder about the history of the Steelers logo?

Now you know.

Deshea scored against Dallas in this corner of the end zone.

T-minus 48-hours to kickoff.
Get ready.

Once more for posterity:
