Dilly! Dilly! April in Chantilly!

April 3rd, 4th & 5th to be exact!

That’s right! You’ll want to pack the kids in the car on that first weekend of April (3rd – 5th) and head to the Collector’s Showcase of America Spring Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA at 4320 Chantilly Shopping Center.

Steelers in attendance: Big Ben, Coach Cowher, Jerome Bettis, TJ Watt, Ryan Shazier, Devin Bush, Antwaan Randle El, Larry Foote, Jeff Reed, Hines Ward and Donnie Shell!

Autograph tickets are still available to purchase online or once you’re inside the door. Check under each player’s name to make sure what the pricing is for each type of item and any special info!

Admission to get into the Expo Center for adults is $5 per person on Friday (or free with an advanced ticket purchase) & $10 per person on Saturday & Sunday. Kids 12 & under are FREE!

Sports fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from other big names in today’s game as well as the ‘Greats of the Game’ from not only the NFL, but MLB and NBA too: Jordy Nelson, Luke Kuechly, Nick Chubb, Joey & Nick Bosa, Tremaine Edmunds, Noah Fant, Frank Gore, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Anthony Munoz, Emmitt Smith, Thurman Thomas, Ronnie Lott, Champ Bailey, Jim Brown, Ivan Rodriguez (MLB), Bobby Richardson (MLB), Eddie Murray (MLB), Paul Molitor (MLB), Steve Garvey (MLB), Spencer Haywood (NBA), Dan Issel (NBA) and Allan Iverson (NBA).

This is a well-organized & well-attended show. In fact, one quick stroll through the parking lot and you’ll think you’re in Pittsburgh South. There are also many reputable sports dealers on hand selling everything from autographed items to sports cards to vintage sports memorabilia to artwork for that Man Cave.

Of course, if you’d like to share photos and stories of meeting your favorite Steelers players, hit me up at [email protected] after the show and I’ll be happy to post them!

And since I brought it up…

‘Legion, Ben provide $7K for new K-9’

“This guy (K9 Csuti) has done an amazing job for the city. He’s taken a lot of stuff off the streets that didn’t need to be out there. It solves a whole lot of problems for us, and Brian and Csuti do a great job.” — Columbiana Police Chief Tim Gladis.

From Scott Lendak, at The Morning Journal:

As the [Columbiana] Police Department continues to accumulate money, it was presented with two checks for a combined $7,000 from the American Legion Post 290 Ladies Auxiliary Unit and the community foundation at last week’s city council meeting.

American Legion Post 290 Ladies Auxiliary Unit members Joyce Allcorn and Deb Gorby presented Gladis with a $2,000 check, which was made through a fundraiser specifically for the K-9 unit. Deann Davis also presented a check on behalf of the community foundation from the Ben Roethlisberger FoundationGiving Back Fund for $5,000.

“Without the community foundation we wouldn’t have been able to do this. We appreciate everything they did for us. Deann got really short notice from me and really did a lot of work. We appreciate Ben and this foundation for the help they’ve given us to help pay for a new dog.” — Chief Gladis.

Since the department needed to apply for the grant through a nonprofit organization, the community foundation acted as a conduit for the grant. Gladis thanked Davis for working quickly in a short amount of time to ensure they applied in time.

Granchie will remain working with Csuti and Gladis will assign a new officer to work with the other K-9 unit.
