Yes, it's a "Call Me Maybe" parody video, and yes, you overdosed on those weeks ago. Just watch one more. I promise, you'll be glad you did.
Is it just me, or does Pittsburgh Steelers training camp look like the happiest place on earth? Grown football players are singing and dancing with little girls. Old men and young women are making the act of taping ankles seem like the most joyous activity possible. Make-A-Wish kids are in the company of their heroes. Players are smiling while signing autographs, tousling the hair of young children, and using brooms as guitars. Everyone looks elated.
Even James Harrison has some fun, taking a break from things like this to sing a little "Call Me Maybe." I've often wondered which force was more powerful ‒ the sheer intimidation that radiates from James Harrison, or the catchiness of Carly Rae Jepsen's pop opus. Carly Rae just won in a walk. Harrison pressed two dumbbells, each heavier than my car, and never cracked a smile. I still giggled.
Steelers training camp is apparently utopia. I don't know why Mike Wallace wanted to miss a second of that.
Gracias, Steelers Gab.
