With Rocky Bleier – 7:30 PM @ University of Dubuque Heritage Center
Four-time Super Bowl champion Rocky Bleier performs his one-man show. The Play, based on his almost unbelievable life story, takes audiences into three bars from Bleier’s life where he tells stories of family, war, and the heart of Steeler Nation. Bleier recalls being selected in the 16th round of the 1968 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, only to be drafted one year later by the Army and sent to Vietnam. Severely injured, he was expected to never play football again. However, with personal determination and the encouragement of Steelers owner Art Rooney, Bleier was back at training camp in 1970 where he became an indispensable part of the Steelers dynasty with Super Bowl victories in 1975, 1976, 1979, and 1980. Journey through the decades of family anecdotes, tales of Steelers glory, and multimedia projections bringing Bleier’s remarkable story to life. Premiering in Pittsburgh in 2015, this heartfelt and inspiring memoir is perfect for sports fans of all ages. Visit www.DBQ.edu/HeritageCenter.
