Quote :
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There’s no bigger rivalry than the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens.

But it’s what one Steelers fan did off the field that is going viral.

Ernest Freeman, a successful software consultant, says he had an extra ticket to the Steelers-Ravens game at Heinz Field on Christmas Day.

He was going to sell the ticket, that was until he says he listened to Johnny Gill’s “Give Love On Christmas Day.” There’s a line in the song about giving love to the “man on the street” and that gave Freeman an idea...

This is the kind of thing that restores my faith in humanity. What a great story. Ernest Freeman, if you're on these forums under some screen name, you sir have my respect, and you are an inspiration to us all.
