Tackled… With Children, a Pittsburgh Steelers Sitcom
In 1969, the Pittsburgh Steelers tried out and signed a young football player to their roster who would go on to make a big name for himself. Terry Bradshaw? No. Franco Harris? No. We’re talking about the amazing and talented Ed O’Neill. In case you didn’t know, Ed O’Neill starred for a good solid decade as lovable loser Al Bundy on FOX Television’s Married… With Children. Ed’s football career didn’t last long as he was cut in training camp and didn’t make it to the regular season, but things seemed to have worked out just fine.
