“Obviously, because of what I do, I don’t get a chance to see him a lot,” Tomlin told Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “So any time you get to is special. Because it’s in Pittsburgh, that makes it doubly so. The [schedule makers] have been extremely kind to me. I appreciate ‘em. Can you imagine if it was a Saturday while I was on my way out of town? That would be painful to be flying out over that stadium and seeing activity.”

🏈 Dallas Mavericks owner and Pittsburgh native Mark Cuban reflected on where he was the moment the Immaculate Reception happened.
