Mr. Irrelevant, Irrelevant Week has surprising connections to the Steelers

My new Failure magazine feature on the history of Irrelevant Week reveals several surprising connections to the Pittsburgh Steelers, many of which I was unaware of before researching the article. Not only was the very first Mr. Irrelevant [Kelvin Kirk, 17th round, 1976] chosen by the Steelers, the creator of Mr. Irrelevant [Paul Salata] was a Steelers draft pick, taken in the tenth round in 1951. Not only that, Salata was a two-year NFL veteran when he was selected by Pittsburgh, having already played for the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Colts.
