Two Super Bowl appearances, one Super Bowl win, and one of the greatest offenses of all time. This season is the 15th anniversary of the Greatest Show on Turf, and the Rams will do their best to honor the days that are dearly missed by fans.
The most significant celebration event will come on Monday, October 13 when the Rams host NFC West rival San Francisco on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. The Rams will wear their blue and yellow throwback jerseys as they host the 49ers, and members of the 1999 team will be recognized at halftime.
The Rams will also wear their 1999 throwback jerseys when they host the New York Giants on December 21 as the team celebrates its annual Fan Appreciation Day.
Over the past two years, the Rams have had some success in the classic blue and yellow throwback uniforms, that fans almost miss as much as the greatest show on turf days.
In addition, the Rams have launched GreatestShowOnTurf.com, a website that features hundreds of exclusive photos and dozens of highlights from the Rams run to the Super Bowl and beyond.
The Rams will also be featured throughout the day on NFL Network. Programming scheduled to air includes an interview with Holt conducted by St. Louis Rams.com’s Casey Phillips, A Football Life with Warner, Rush to Canton: Marshall Faulk, America’s Game: The 1999 St. Louis Rams, and a Super Bowl Classics Special Edition – Super Bowl XXXIV with live in-studio analysis by Warner.
If you want to relive the glory days, be sure to tune in.
Back then the Rams had one of the best offenses, not only in recent memory, but of all-time. Since then, the Rams offense has struggled, and it is now the defense that is the highlight of the team. In 1999 we might have been known as the Greatest Show on Turf, but in 2014, let me officially introduce to you, Sack City.
