Here we go! As if the Pittsburgh Steelers playing in the primetime Thanksgiving showdown between the Baltimore Ravens wasn’t enough for fans, “This Is Us” star Milo Ventimiglia is set to give an opening message ahead of the game.
According to a People Magazine exclusive, Ventimiglia’s virtual holiday greeting will feature Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin, Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh and players from both teams.
What the message will be is a mystery until the Thursday night matchup on Channel 11. However, if you watch “This Is Us,” you know the show gives a plethora of nods to the Steel City, so we could see Pittsburgh favored.
Ventimiglia’s character Jack is a born and raised Steelers fan with black and gold in his veins. We have seen him along with the rest of the Pearson family all sporting Steelers attire and waving the iconic Terrible Towel including Rebecca (Mandy Moore), Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
But wait. There’s more!
Moore and Ventimiglia have even been to Heinz Field where they were guests at the 2017 Steelers Draft Party, announced the Steelers fourth-round draft pick and received personalized “Pearson” Steelers jerseys.
Don’t miss the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Baltimore Ravens Thursday at 8 p.m. on Channel 11 with pregame coverage starting at 7 p.m..
Season 5 of “This Is Us” returns Jan. 5, 2021 on Channel 11.
