    ATLANTA - Ask any fan to recall some of the greatest moments in Super Bowl history and they're bound to give you dozens of different answers. The Titans came up a yard short against the Rams in Super Bowl 34 played at the Georgia Dome. There was William "The Refrigerator" Perry and the Chicago Bears doing the "Super Bowl Shuffle." And unfortunately, who could forget the New England Patriots coming back against the Atlanta Falcons to win Super Bowl 51?

    For some fans though, it's the commercials that create the most memories. From the Budweiser frogs that chirped "Bud-Weis-Er" to Terry Tate, the Reebok office linebacker, sometimes the commercials are the best part of the night.

    Who could forget "Mean" Joe Greene? The Coca-Cola ad featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle topped Men's Journal list of 13 "Best Super Bowl Commercials Ever" that it compiled a few years ago. And it's no surprise that it's the centerpiece of the Super Bowl display this week at the World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta.

    And that history starts with what Men's Journal calls the "Best Super Bowl Commercials Ever."

    Greene is considered one of the best defensive linemen to ever play the game. His two defensive player of the year awards and five All-Pro selections back that up. But it's his 1979 Coca-Cola commercial that most people remember him by.

    Visitors to the World of Coke can meet Greene on Friday, Feb. 1. He'll take part in a "Champions Chat" along with former player Carl Banks. Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard will moderate the event. It's 2:15 to 3 p.m. and is free with a general admission ticket.
