Steelers-Colts game too much for one fan

ABC News reports that a 50-year-old Steelers fan, watching Sunday's Steelers versus Colts game in a Pittsburgh bar, had a heart attack after watching Jerome Bettis fumble a would-be two-yard touchdown run.

"I wasn't upset that the Steelers might lose," he said. "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."

The fan, one Terry O'Neill, is recovering in an area hospital, and said that he'll probably watch the rest of the playoffs at home.
