Although not many people are a fan of the Steelers football team, those with a shred of humanity would find this story somewhat touching. It turns out that Ray Horton, former secondary coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, sold his 1999 Mercedes SL500 to cafeteria worker Maurice Matthews for just $20 just before taking over as defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.
According to Horton, the cook always kidded around about when he would be given the chance to drive the German car, to which Horton always jokingly replied “you can’t afford the gas in it.” But on his final day in Pittsburgh, when Horton went up to Matthews to say goodbye, he asked him if he could borrow whatever he had in his pocket. Once Matthews gave him a $20 bill, Horton yelled, ‘sold for $20!’ and handed the key over to his Mercedes SL500.
Don’t you just love happy endings….
