At yesterday’s game against the Bears, Pittsburgh Steeler and former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva was the lone member of his team who came out of the locker room to stand on the field for the National Anthem.

While Steelers coach Mike Tomlin isn’t happy with Villanueva’s patriotic gesture, the offensive tackle is winning raves from plenty of other Americans.

A lot of fans had the same idea, and sales of his jersey have reportedly rocketed to the top:

Awesome. Couldn’t’ve happened to a nicer guy — honestly.


It’s a beautiful thing.
