Super Bowl, Steelers, Rooney and Obama

Sports Entertainment: Rooney, the Super Bowl and the New Administration

by Eric Green

Just a note on the 6th Super Bowl for Pittsburgh Steelers.

Dan Rooney, the owner of the Steelers, the Rooney family owning the Steelers for its entire life, a life long Republican Party member in a Democratic stronghold Pittsburgh, Pa, this year, campaigned with other Steelers for Barak Obama for President.

He also hired Mike Tomlin a young defense coach to be only the 3rd head coach in Steeler history, since its1969 when Steeler history should have started. In fact, prior to that date the Steelers were the pro football doormat.

Oh, by winning the Super Bowl, Mike Tomlin is the second African-American coach to do so.
