He works at a car dealership which a lot of the Steelers go to. He said the other week Roethlisberger came in and while there, slipped on a big rubber doormat. I guess it was wet or something. Anyway, he was about to go down big time when his bodygaurd cought him. I can only imagine the lawsuit if he had got hurt!
Wow, Ben has a bodyguard. With the luck he has I would have expected a SWAT team, lol... jk jk.

I think instead of torches it would be terrible towels, and everyone would be wearing Steelers gear....

I've never met him, but I know someone who has. This girl and I were at Ithaca College together - she's from the `Burgh, and she went to school and was friends with Cowher's oldest daughter. Had 3rd row seats behind the bench for the games and got to go to Super Bowl XL. To her, he's just a normal guy, her friend's dad.

Does vegas count? I went into a cigar shop to buy and had my jersey on (as always). Guy said that Troy left the shop about 10 minutes before I came in. Too bad. I had his jersey on. Went looking for him, but never did see him. Closest I have come.

OK..I'm going to show my age a little but:

Willie Stargell several times while I was a bus boy at Kings back in the mid 70's. Franco Harris at a bar called Alexander Graham Bells downtown in the late 70's. Ronnie Francis at a resturant in Greentree. I never ask for autographs I just said hello and shock their hands.

I meet Cowher over the summer during training camp. I was in town for visiting family and my Dad took me out to his local bar one night. He told me Cowher usually shows up pretty late (guessing after all his meeting, ect). We were at Spitfire Grill in Greensburg, having some beers, and it was getting late I think little after 11:00PM (I was up for 24 hrs...thats why I say late). Very nice mercedes parks across the street, and my Dad says..."cohwers here". He sat up at the bar with a few older guys, talking and having a few beers. My Dad said, "Here is your chance, go up and shake his hand". I didn't want to bother him, sure he had a long day. The waitress came over, so I decided to get a beer for Cowher...Rolling Rock. When he got his beer the waitress pointed at me, and I went up and congrat him on the Super Bowl and wished him the best for the season. He was friendly, thanked me for the beer, and had some small talk. My Dad and I wear leaving Cowher came over to say goodbye and thanks for the beer again. I'm not sure why...but I thought he wouldn't be as friendly. But, he was really cool. Wish I got a pic with him, but thought that was pushing it.

I met Hines and Deshae at Hine's bar on the South Side. The LockerRoom. He owns it with Jerome. Hines was a real nice guy, he was behind the bar helping out. I asked him if I could by him a shot, 1 for him and 1 for all my friends and I said his choice. We ended up getting 6 Jager Bombs total. he charged me like $20. real classy guy. Nice guy. Got our picture takin with him. The I told him to kick the hell outa the Clowns since they were playin them on Sunday (This was the Super Bowl year right before we blanked them in Cleveland). Deshae was nice too, talkative with us. But we all wanted to talk to Hines. Couldnt have asked for a better host.
