Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has invited members of this weekend’s visiting team to be his dinner guests. Mike, the twin brother of Maurkice and the rest of the Miami Dolphins’ offensive line will share a meal at Maurkice’s home Saturday, the eve of the game between the teams. Maurkice ordered food from a steakhouse.
“You know linemen have got to eat steak,” Mike said Friday. “It’s going to be a good weekend.”
Mike said he’s only sorry his brother will be a spectator Sunday. Maurkice is out for the season after hurting his knee in the opener.
“You always want to see your brother playing,” Mike said. “I hate that he’s going through what he’s going through this year, but he’s a tough dude.”
It is a great gesture for the Maurkice to host the Phins line. You don’t see that often, but hey it is Christmas time, right?
