Steelers Style show highlights include an impromptu breakdance
“Let's have some fun, and let's try not to laugh when these guys come out,” said Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin as his roster primped backstage before strutting down the runway for the Steelers Style fashion show.
Fandemonium accurately described the scene in the East Club Lounge of Heinz Field, where an army of 750 admirers started off the evening by perusing the Steelers Style Lounge — a genius addition to the festivities this year — that satisfied any black-and-gold retail fashion cravings.
Spotlight on, emcee Bob Pompeani did the honors and DJ Bonics soundtracked the evening for an audience that included Dr.Thomas andJoy Starzl, Cindy Citrone, Athena Sarris, Jim andCathy Garraux, Clyde Jones and co-chairs Mike andKiya Tomlin and Greta andArt Rooney II.
The roar paled in comparison, however, to the response that Troy Polamalu and his sons Paisios andEphraim received as Paisios brought down the house with an impromptu breakdance punctuated with signature Michael Jackson moves to the tune of “Thriller.”
The event benefited the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute at UPMC and the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program.
