This is a story that has already been said several times. But Mike Tomlin added a little more flavor to the story of two cans of beer. To be honest, it probably shouldn’t be consumed.Tomlin had a great interview with Pat McAfee, AJ Hawk and the cast Pat McAfee Show Thursday morning And I elaborated on a story we know a little. Just before he resigned as Steelers head coach, Bill Cowher left beer in the fridge for Mike Tomlin. A Pittsburgh version of a housewarming gift.
In fact, it 2 IC light can.
“There are two cans of IC lights left,” Tomlin told Shaw, explaining what that meant to him. “What a gesture, do you know what I mean? Some of my best friends in college were boys in Pittsburgh. Mount Lebanon, an apercent Claire type guy. So I I know what an IC light is and what it means. I’m really grateful if I don’t come here. What a gesture. “
In his new book, Heart and Steel, Bill Cowher writes about a conversation with Tomlin.
“When I talked to Mike, I told him one important piece of information.
“Hey, I left Iron City beer in the office fridge for you.”
“I know,” he said. “It’s still there.” “
And those beers are still sitting there today. At this time, Tomlin has no plans to drink them. Unless IC Light is the most airtight ever created, this is probably a good idea in itself. Instead, he plans to give those cans to the next Steelers coach. Tomlin didn’t expect them to be sitting in his fridge for such a long time.
“So I decided not to drink it, and I leave it for the next person. At that time, I said those cans were 15 years old and still sitting there. I didn’t expect it, so it’s now a kind of ritual. But that’s my intention, what a gesture. Thank you for his support. From him for years. Thank you for the support I received. “
Tomlin concludes the story by creating a kind of jarring point, which is true. Only two people are alive on this planet, head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mike Tomlin and Bill Cowher.
“It’s a cool, real little fraternity of the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach. At the moment, it’s a two-person deal. And I’m grateful to my big companion in BC.”
