Former Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Kevin Greene was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday and his acceptance speech was one of the best of the evening. Greene talked about his entire playing career dating back to college and made sure to gush about his time spent in Pittsburgh.
“So in my ninth year, I find myself in the right place at the right time in the football universe. I find myself in Blitzburgh,” Greene said. “I would never quite experience anything like being a Pittsburgh Steeler, playing for Mr. Rooney and the Steeler organization that had such a rich history of just lining up and kicking ass and winning. It was awesome to be a part of that, playing in front of the Steeler Nation and feeding off that energy from those fans. I believed in my heart that I was unblockable, and it was a phenomenal experience.”
