Fantasy Football…


I started this blog is because my world is interesting. For some reason, unknown to me, unusual things happen to me. Some of them are good. Some of them are bad, but they all lead to a good story. Now, after four years of living in Pittsburgh, I finally have a great Pittsburgh Steelers' story. Ironically, this Pittsburgh story would not have been possible without three men who hail from the great state of Tennessee.

Last Saturday, I met three charming African-American men in the lobby of the Omni William Penn Hotel here in Pittsburgh. That is unusual for Pittsburgh. Had I seen them and not met them, I would have called my friends to share the tale. However, the story gets better. The men were charming, generous, and most interested in hanging out with some Pittsburgh girls.

They were in town from Memphis for the Steelers/Cowboys game, one of the biggest games of the year. I met them. They liked me. I gave them directions to the mall. And the next morning, I had three tickets at the game on the lower level, in the end zone. My girls and I attended the game and had a great time.

Lest you think that I dispensed sexual favors for the tickets, I’ll clarify. I did no such thing. I merely dispensed directions with a dose of kindness. As I have learned many times, kindness pay off. And in this case, the Steelers won, completing my fantasy. I almost didn’t notice that I was absolutely freezing!
