Sometimes getting the leg up on everyone else is all about who you know.
It pays to be a famous athlete, and it definitely pays to be famous athletes on a team whose new co-owner dabbles in the film business.
That’s exactly the cool delimma the Pittsburgh Steelers found themselves in this evening.
5 significant Steelers including former wide receiver Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Mike Wallace and Ben Roethlisberger all make cameos in the film during a football scene shot at Heinz Field.
The newly retired Ward makes reference to a scary scene he is in.
“I’ve run scared before but I really ran scared that day,” Ward told Gene Collier of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “They told me, ‘Don’t look back.’ I felt the explosion when I was running. I had to wear earplugs. Usually, I’m smiling when I’m running, but that day I was actually screaming.”
This is one scene I’ve got to see.
