Steelers Fans and a Very Cool Job

Okay. Everybody knows Pittsburgh sports fans are the greatest fans in the world. Even when they move away, they are still loyal to their “Stillers”, Pens, and Pirates, which is why even for Steelers training camp, people have traveled from as far away as Florida and Chicago this week to see the guys in black and gold. Youngest Son, who at the beginning of May had no idea what he was going to do for a summer job, is now finishing up his summer at his third and coolest job of all. He started yesterday working for the Steelers at their summer training camp.

I’m betting some people would actually pay to do this job, but Youngest Son and some other lucky students are actually earning some cash for school. I couldn’t wait until he came home yesterday so he could tell us all about the job. First of all, the spectators are all happy to be there to get a chance to catch a glimpse of their favorite Steeler in action and maybe even get an autograph. The weather was about as perfect as a Southwestern Pennsylvania summer day can get. And Youngest Son, one of the biggest sports fans on the planet, got to drive these awesome Steelers around the campus on a golf cart as part of his job.

It seems these players are as entertaining off the field as they are on the field. He said Ryan Clark and Willie Parker were really funny and very cool. Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu are also known as being super nice but since they were on the back of the cart, he didn’t get much of a chance to chat with them. The whole staff has been awesome to him and the other workers so far. It’s a great way for a sports-loving college student to spend his last couple weeks before hitting the books.
