The Steelers’ new punter Daniel Sepulveda, hereforeto known as The Badass, was interviewed about his move to the Burgh.
“I couldn’t be happier with the way the draft worked out. What an awesome opportunity. My visit to Pittsburgh was about two weeks before the draft. It just felt right being there, I just had a good feeling about it. You come through the tunnel from the airport, and I went through it at night. Downtown was all lit up, and you see the three rivers and Heinz Field. It was just an awesome sight, and I had no idea that Pittsburgh was that awesome looking. I heard about it in the airport on the way over there from the driver that took me, but words cannot describe it. Once I saw it I thought, ‘Man, I can play here’. I am just so glad it worked out that way.”
“The people that you meet there, everyone is diehard Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates. It is just so neat to be in that environment. It just feels like home, and everybody loves their Pittsburgh sports teams which is just a really cool deal. I am looking forward to getting started.”
Anyone that says “awesome” and “cool” that much, and who has that much of an appreciation for our awesome city, is a kindred spirit of PittGirl’s.
He’s got my stamp of approval and as soon as I see him in person I’ll smack it on his forehead.
