Fifty-year-old Terry O'Neill of Pittsburgh says he was watching the game at a bar when he had a heart attack just seconds after Steelers player Jerome Bettis' fumble at the two-yard line late in the fourth quarter.
The play allowed the Colts to have a renewed chance at winning the game.

O'Neill says Bettis is his hero, and he was upset with the idea the player might have ended his career with an error.

"I wasn't upset that the Steelers might lose," O'Neill told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I was upset because I didn't want to see him end his career like that. A guy like that deserves better. I guess it was a little too much for me to handle."

Wow!

In an unrelated story a Texan's fan had a heart attack to learn that there would be new roof policy for Reliant Stadium in 2006. :)

I think the closest I ever got to a heart attack was when Pujols hit that homerun off of Lidge in the NLCS.

Thats was the worst feeling I ever had and that includes the choke in Buffalo.

I bet it had nothing to do with the blood vessels that look like the inside of a bratwurst. :ok:
