“When I was in college, I worked in a very popular higher-end shoe store in Pittsburgh…”
“Troy Polamalu had come into the store and one of my coworkers, who was a super sweet older woman, had no idea who he was. She got to chatting with him and his wife. She made a comment about how big he was and asked him if he played sports. He just smiled and said, ‘A little,’ and then they just went about their business with the shoes.
Afterward, our coworkers told her who he was and she was so excited and embarrassed at the same time. This would have been around when the Steelers won Super Bowl XL. It’s still one of my favorite stories from that job. She couldn’t stop talking about how nice he was. It was just a super wholesome moment.”
