Stage review: Rocky Bleier is in the zone with 'The Play'

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “If you live the life,” Rocky Bleier tells us, “you can’t escape the stories.” He’s talking about his Steelers roommate, the ferocious Jack Lambert, but it’s his story we’ve come to hear, and it’s a heck of a yarn.

The son of a bar owner from Appleton, Wis., who went on to be a Notre Dame football captain, a Vietnam wounded warrior and a 1,000-yard rusher during the Steelers’ 1970s dynasty years, has enough stories for several lifetimes, actually, and certainly enough to fill 90 compelling minutes.
