This would be considered a feel good story.

It also shows there are still nice people in the world who do nice things.  Former Steelers Coach Ray Horton accepted a job as the Arizona Cardinals Defensive Coordinator.

One his final day for the Steelers he decided to surprise Cafeteria Worker Maurice Matthews.

AskKissy.com takes over the story from here:

On his final day in Pittsburgh, Horton approached Matthews to say goodbye and asked if he could borrow whatever money he had in his pocket. When Matthews handed over a twenty, Horton said “sold for $20!” and handed him the keys to his car.

“Ray said, ‘Hey, you always liked the car, you’re a good dude, I know you’ll take care of it,” Matthews told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It’s yours.”

The next day he drove Horton to the airport and received all the paperwork to take ownership of the car. With 64,000 miles on it, Matthews ended up paying $20 for a vehicle that carries a Kelly Blue Book valueof $17,735.

“It’s just taking care of guys who took care of you,” Horton told the Arizona Cardinals team blog.

Any time you can get a Mercedes for $20 it has been a blessed day.  Horton you could tell was doing it out of the kindness of his heart.  Just another example of how the Steelers organization sans Big Ben strong arming and Hines Ward DUI is a top flight franchise in the NFL.

  4. I wanted to post you a little bit of word to be able to say thanks as before just for the exceptional suggestions you’ve contributed on this site. It’s simply remarkably generous of you to present unreservedly what a few people could possibly have marketed for an e-book to make some money for their own end, mostly given that you could have tried it if you decided. Those guidelines additionally worked to provide a good way to realize that someone else have a similar desire the same as my own to realize good deal more when considering this problem. I am certain there are some more fun moments ahead for people who examine your site.

  5. Great post made here. One thing I would really like to say is that most professional career fields consider the Bachelor’s Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online degree. While Associate College diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing your current Bachelors opens up many entrance doors to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions offer you Online types of their qualifications but typically for a greatly higher cost than the institutions that specialize in online college degree programs.
