New Pittsburgh Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin knows football, and I love how he’s up-leveling the intensity of training camp.
Seems like he’s got something to learn about Pittsburgh though, as today’s USA Today shows:
When movie star Will Smith accompanied Tomlin to dinner at a local restaurant, fans mobbed their table — to meet Tomlin… Smith told Tomlin it was the first time in 20 years he had eaten in a restaurant and hadn’t been asked for his autograph.
“The irony is, Mike had been to the restaurant once before but couldn’t enjoy it because fans kept interrupting him,” Hammons says. “He figured if he took Will Smith, he’d have a peaceful meal.”
Coach Tomlin could take the Pope, Tom Cruise, Naomi Campbell and Heidi Clum to dinner, and he’d still be the only one people would want to speak with.
Welcome to Pittsburgh, Coach Tomlin!
