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.
