I don't have a lot of memories from those NFC Championships, unfortunately. I was more into what was happening in the AFC. I went to the Steelers-Colts AFC Championship when Pittsburgh eventually lost to Dallas in the Super Bowl (95?). My uncle has season tickets to Steelers games. I also went to the AFC Championship losses for the Steelers against the Chargers (94?) and the Patriots (01?).
I've probably been to more Steelers games than any Browns fan on the planet.
I do remember how much I despised Dallas and Irvin, in particular. I have to say, though... Since his retirement, I've grown to like Irvin. His HOF induction speech was one of the most heartfelt that I have ever heard and I like him as a commentator.
I think Jerry Jones was the catalyst in my hatred for the Cowboys. The Browns weren't really relevant back then, though.
