The Bus continues to make Black and Gold Country so proud!

Denzel, a 27-year-old viewer of The Rachael Ray Show, wrote in to ask Rachael to help surprise his hardworking mother on her 50th birthday.

"My mother Kimberly has been the best mother I could ever ask for. Ever since I was about 12 years old, my mom was a single parent, and she did just about anything to make my brother and I comfortable and happy and made sure that we wanted for nothing," Denzel said.

His mother, who works a full-time job and a part-time job for her children, is also a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan, despite living in Patriots territory.

"[When> Jerome Bettis was playing, she would be like, 'Come on Bus, come on Bus,' she'd be screaming, yelling, jumping up off the couch," Denzel writes.

Little did Kimberly know that her 50th birthday would be spent with the surprise of a lifetime—from her favorite Steeler, The Bus himself! 

Bettis surprised Kimberly and Denzel on stage with Steelers gear and tickets to a game at Heinz Field. 

Happy Birthday to Kimberly, and, thanks for always being the best, Jerome!
