It didn't take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to sample some of the adult entertainment Dallas has to offer.
Late Monday night, hours after they arrived here, Hines Ward, Ike Taylor and several other members of the Pittsburgh Steelers visited Dallas Gentlemen's Club on Northwest Highway in Dallas.
A number of other pro athletes were there as well.
When Ward and his teammates entered the club, dancers converged on them. They spent a few minutes in the VIP area at the back of the club. But as the music pumped and the women strode across the four stages, the Steelers huddled in the front corner of the club for closer looks.
Ward, wearing a plaid shirt and jeans, danced with a couple of strippers. At one point, he tossed out dollars while receiving lap dances. Other Steelers joined him.
At one point, near midnight, the Steelers, including huge linemen, appeared on the main stage., There they posed and danced with an assortment of strippers. It was "Make It Rain Monday" at the club. And some of the players made it rain with their dollar bills.
The disc jockey said that Green Bay Packer players were on the way, but I didn't spot any at the club.
One large man wearing a green outfit with an Oakland As cap drank Moet out of the bottle.
I asked him was he wearing Packer green?
"I'm wearing money green," he said.
