Franco Harris was probably one of the great running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers ever. He was in there with Terry Bradshaw and they played phenomenal. This past weekend was the anniversary of Harris’ immaculate reception and it has me fondly recalling the memory. I was at the game of the immaculate reception. The immaculate reception was a deflected ball that Harris caught and ran in for a touchdown. It was a phenomenal catch and a great run after the catch. The ball was almost on the ground and he caught it. It was so low and it was amazing. Some think that the ball touched the ground but I think it was just a great catch. They definitely went to and won the Super Bowl on that play itself. It is the play that made Franco Harris go down in NFL history and made him a Keepr.
Franco Harris was a very special athlete. He lasted a long time in the league and went to the pro-bowl 9 times during his career. They had a great team. Chuck Noll was the coach who came from Baltimore over to Pittsburgh. He put the team together and got them really focused. They’ve done a pretty good job.
I knew a lot of Pittsburgh guys because I was born in Pittsburgh but grew up in Cleveland. So, when they played each other it was tough for me to decide who to cheer for.
In the 60’s, Pittsburgh wasn’t a great team and when we (Baltimore Colts) played them, they were an easier team to beat. Then, around the time of the immaculate reception that changed and they became a great team. Franco Harris deserves to be in the pro-football hall of fame, there’s no doubt about that. He really is an NFL Legend.

We wanted the first release of our Keepr media collectibles to make a statement. Football is great. The NFL is legendary. So, our first releases were pretty obvious. Joe Montana is a Keepr Legend. This quarterback made his career with the San Francisco 49ers and played his final year with the Kansas City Chiefs. Drafted in 1979 as a third round pick, Joe went on to be a hall of fame worthy quarterback. From 1979 to 1994, Joe made 273 touchdowns and played in 8 pro-bowls. He was also named NFL MVP in both 1989 and 1990. Sports Illustrated named him “Sportsman of the Year” in 1990. He had an overall quarterback rating of 92.3 (Johnny Unitas rating was 78.2).
Joe Montana and “The Catch” is something we will remember in the NFL forever. Joe Montana threw winning touchdown reception to Dwight Clark in the NFC Championship game in 1982 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Catch refers to the winning touchdown reception by Dwight Clark off a Joe Montana pass in the January 10, 1982, NFC Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. He was MVP of Super Bowl XVI, XIX, and XXIV. He has 4 Super Bowl rings.
Joe's career is highlighted in the new Joe Keepr. It contains footage covering the span of his career, photos of the man in action, and all of his statistics.
Joe Montana was inducted into the pro football hall of fame in 2000, is ranked as #4 on NFL.com’s Top 100 Players of All Time, and IS an NFL Keepr Legend.

I apologize for the few and far between blog posts recently. I have been very busy with interviews and other schedule tying events related to the NFL Keepr. This video posted below is one of my more recent interviews from last week with Alex Parker on WJLA Channel 8 Sports Talk.

|WCAO Radio Show|
A facebook friend of mine posted this picture to my facebook page. WCAO was a radio station here in Baltimore, Maryland. We had a great time covering football games and talking sports. We had great participation by the fans. The fans would come up after the show and gather around the table like this and we'd take a picture.
