    Antonio Brown...great story

    Steelers' Antonio Brown Spends Super Bowl Week with Twitter Fan Turned BFF

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/46326110


    AB is a class act all the way and I hope he's a Steeler for a long long time. Has anyone else noticed much like his mentor (Hines Ward )AB always has a huge smile on his face.

    January 31 9:29 am: Tweet from @AntonioBrown84: Indianapolis #steelernation talk to me
    January 31 9:39 am: Tweet from @sdpaladin: @AntonioBrown84 I live in Indy! Let's get lunch! How's 12:30?
    It started just like that.
    Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brownhad arrived in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl with some time on his hands. So he told his fans where he was. Seth Paladin, a die-hard Steelers fan, had planned his normal Tuesday. He was about to start his day as a sales representative for home security company ADT. But the fan in him decided to be bold, as he quickly scanned his Twitter timeline before going out. Not expecting much, he tweeted at the Steelers Pro Bowler, with 85,000 followers. He wanted to see him in person.
    “When I first tweeted at him, I thought there was a very slim chance that he’d see it," Paladin said. "When he replied, I thought to myself, ‘This is crazy.’”

    What happened next is the most amazing story of athlete-fan interaction in the short history of social media.

    It's really awesome, AB gave that guy the week of his life. It's a testament to the down to earth attitude that makes AB such a fan favorite.

    I'm ALWAYS happy to hear stories like this, as opposed to the "negative" ones.

    Eversince I saw Antonio Brown play his first game, he's been my favorite Steeler. This story only enhances my love for the kid.
