For many Steeler fans, it would be a dream come true to meet Mike Tomlin. I'm sure some of us have imagined the conversation we might have with him if we ever did get to meet him. Here is one fans dream conversation. It isn't what I would go with, I would throw in some questions here or there but hey, it is his dream not mine. What would you ask if you had the chance to meet Mike Tomlin?
Me (Dave Scerbo): Coach I just want to personally thank you for choosing to come to coach in Pittsburgh.
Coach: Thank-you it's my pleasure to be associated with such a great organization.
Me: As a life-long Steeler fan, I feel you truly embody the fundamentals and ideals that this franchise stands for.
Coach: You seem like a pretty smart guy, maybe you'd like to come watch a practice some time.
Me: That'd be great, I consider you one of my heros and you truly are an inspration; not just as a coach, but as a man.
Coach: Maybe after this we could go grab a burger.
Me: I just want to say that I really admire your focus, and your desire to be at your best, always improving and learning from the past.
Coach: You really sound like you know what you're talking about. How would you like to an assistant coach. You can follow me around on the sideline and make sure I don't trip over the cord that goes to my headset.
Me: By the way; You had one sweet-ass flat-top back in the day.
Coach: Thanks, that thing was known to hold bricks straight up in the air without any deformation what-so-ever.
Me: That's one gnarly weave!
