Tunch And Joseph

If you’re wondering why the title of today’s blog post is “Tunch And Joseph,” let me explain the reason why I called it that.  There’s a radio show called “Tunch And Wolf” … and, in it, they talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers.  It’s a little play on words or something like that.  That’s why I called it “Tunch And Joseph.”

Well, anyway, I’d like to tell you about the celebrity that I met while I was working at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx last Friday.  While I was working near the front of the store that morning, I noticed that Tunch Ilkin, who played with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1980 until 1992, came into the store … and he happened to notice that I was working near the front of T.J. Maxx.  While I was working late that morning, I happened to meet Tunch Ilkin in person … and I was able to talk with him for about five minutes while his mother was returning an item.  My Pittsburgh friends should know who Tunch Ilkin is in one form or another, whether they saw him as a Pittsburgh Steelers player, as a host of his radio show “Tunch And Wolf” or as a spokesperson for Colussy Chevrolet, which is located in South Fayette.

This was an experience that I will never forget.  Tunch Ilkin is by far one of the best people that the Steelers has ever had.  Again, if you were wondering why I called today’s blog post “Tunch And Joseph,” you’ll know why.  It’s about me meeting a celebrity named Tunch Ilkin.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around January 11th in previous years …
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s DVDs (January 11, 2018)
Joseph’s Flashback: I had three substitute teachers in one day?! (January 11, 2017)
I see some clouds … and I see some fog! (January 11, 2016)
My sweater vests (January 11, 2015)
Why is Joseph wearing two different loafers? (January 10, 2017)

    During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you some chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will give you a chance to revisit a post from January of 2019 … and it is called “Tunch And Joseph.”

    Now, just one week before I wrote this blog post, I happened to bump into Tunch Ilkin while I was working in the front part of Bridgeville T.J. Maxx. I was cleaning the shelves that were near the line that goes to the cash registers … and Tunch just happened to walk inside of the store whenever I did just that. Tunch was a player for the Pittsburgh Steelers for more than a decade … and he also does a Steelers-themed radio show called “Tunch And Wolf.” He also does commercials for Colussy Chevrolet, which is located in South Fayette. Anyway, meeting Tunch Ilkin in person was probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me … and it is an experience that I will not forget.

    Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit a post from May of 2019 and it will be about one of the classiest people that I have ever known.
