When Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel isn’t shaving off his beard for charity, he’s organizing a fishing trip.
On Monday, Keisel took a group of contest winners fishing at a sporting club in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, a city roughly 15 miles from Pittsburgh.
“Why not do something charitable where people can bid on coming out spending the morning with us fishing you know we’re out here fishing anyways so we might as well do something to benefit others?” Keisel said, via KDKA-TV. The auction that produced the winners supports the Challenge Program, Habitat for Humanity, and Variety: The Children’s Charity of Pittsburgh.
“This is like the trifecta though we got Steelers’ Brett Keisel, fishing instead of work and we’re helping out the children’s Variety,” Tammy Frankhauser said. ”It doesn’t get any better than that.”
And they don’t get any better than Keisel. He turns 34 later this year, so Steelers fans need to enjoy every additional game he suits up and plays with the team.
