“Minstrels shall sing of this epoch battle and children shall learn at their fathers’ knees of the fateful Charge of the Men of Steel. Woe unto the evil minions of the Dark Hall for they shall fall in utter defeat to the warriors of the Black and Gold”.
-The soothsayer Nick
And lo, the men of steel didst traverse into the lair of the purple dragon on their quest to slay the mighty beast, and lay claim to the kingdom of AFC North.
The mighty warriors, adorned in their black and gold armor, found themselves surrounded by an assembly such as had never been seen before in the vile land of Baltimore. It is said that a record 71,502 orcs, trolls, and other foul worshipers of the purple beast did gather in M&T coliseum to witness the clash that had been foretold.
The purple dragon did draw first blood. The mighty beast inflicted much damage to the valiant men of steel, yet their mettle did not waver. For almost sixty minutes the two sides did battle, and victory for the forces of purple darkness seemed all but assured.
But when all seemed lost, the mighty warriors Lord Ben, Sir Hines, and Sir Nate did lead a final valiant charge that rallied the men of steel. Emboldened by the courage of Lord Ben, Sir Hines, and Sir Nate, the other men of steel did rally in kind until finally the young squire “Santonio of the Smoky Weed” did draw his mighty blade and deliver the death blow to the purple beast.
By defeating the great beast, the Men of Steel did lay claim to the kingdom of AFC North and received the gift of the “first round bye”. The threat of the purple beast was no more, and the children of light could sleep soundly, knowing that good had triumphed over evil.
The Men of Steel must now leave the foul land of Baltimore and travel back to the civilized valleys of Pittsburgh. Upon returning home, they must prepare for battle once again as they have been challenged by the over-rated Titans of Tennessee. Like all AFC challengers before them, the Titans shall be found wanting, and the Men of Steel will prove their worthiness to rule the kingdom of AFC.
Epilogue: When the Men of Steel didst defeat the mighty purple behemoth, the sorcery that did empower the beast was lifted, and he reverted to his true form. Behold, the true nature of the beast.
