An oldtimers flag football game matching Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys alumni from Super Bowl X will be played July 30 in Three Rivers Stadium. The Steelers played the Oakland Raiders and the Raiders met the Denver Broncos in similar games last summer. The proceeds will benefit six Pittsburgh charities.
