    Most disappointing loss ever?

    In my 40 years of being a Pittsburgh sports fan I'm grateful to have been part of 12 championships. 6 Superbowls, 2 World Series, 3 Stanley Cups and 1 Pitt National Championship. Sunday's loss was very disappointing but doesn't rank anywhere near the top of my list. Without a doubt the most disappointing loss to me was the Pirates with their cigarette smoking dumb *** coach losing to the Braves with the steroid shooting Barry Bonds unable to throw out the crippled Sid Bream who scored from second. I think I was sick for a week after that game. Next on the list would be one of the many Cowher losses in the AFC championship games when we were heavy favorites to win at home. Pens losing in 1993 to the Islanders. That was a very good team.

    I would have to agree with the bonds-bream game as most disappointing game in pittsburgh sports history

    Losing the Super Bowl is an absolute bitch for so many reasons but the AFCC game loss to the chargers in '94 still grinds my gears because we finally would have had a shot to beat the niners in the SB.

    This would be my choice as well. Unfortunately, Roethlisberger dug up the same gameplan used in that game.

    I was 5 in 95 so this would have to be my worse loss ever. I always feared the day Id see the Stees lose a Super Bowl. It sucks. Everywhere you turn, youre reminded that the Packers won. The only bright side is that I dont mind the Packers. Im happy for them, I just wish it didnt happen against us.

    Spot on Larry. That Buccos loss was unbelievable. Pittsburgh baseball has NEVER recovered since then. SB 30 made me ill for 2 weeks. Mega kilo Bam had more rushing yards than Emmitt...just depressing.

    The way baseball is run I may never see it recover.
