Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney released a letter this morning endorsing Senator Barack Obama for President.
“As a grandfather and a citizen of this community I think Barack Obama’s thoughtful, strategic approach is important for America,” said Rooney. “When I hear how excited young people seem to be when they about this man, I believe he will do what is best for them, which is to inspire them to be great Americans.”
Obama even acknowledge Rooney’s presence in the crowd at this morning’s Alliance for American Manufacturing forum at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
Go Stillers! No word yet on who Steely McBeam prefers. My guess is Mark Foley.
Hillary has McCain’s endorsement, though:
Who are the teelers?
Steely McBeam prefers Jack Daniels.
From that link.

One thing I’ve been disappointed with the Obama campaign is that they haven’t figured out that if they can get a picture of Barack with Mexican soccer legend Cuauhtemoc Blanco (currently starring for the Chicago Fire) they can pick up a lot of Hispanic voters.
…and if he would have endorsed Hillary?
But who will Tomlin endorse? I suspect Roethlisberger was a Huckabee man and will probably just sit this one out.
Ha! The sad thing is, is if you asked me to put money on the first mascot to be arrested for oversaucing, I’da said Steeley McBent in a instant. The disturbing juxtaposition of having the gayest mascot in the NFL amidst the nation’s most blue-collar city would drive anyone to imbibe. Heavily.
As long as Steely videotapes all of his encounters, he should be fine.
Here comes Steely, in yellow and black.
Who will he endorse? Hill or Barack?
Or maybe we’ll see McBeam for McCain,
Because of the similarity of their last name.
Steely’s appeal to working blue collars,
Is worth TV ad buys costing millions of dollars.
McBeam is an asset in this presidential race,
Even if John Cole thinks he’s “a disgrace”
Good thing Ohio is over. This would not play well in Cleveland.
Quiddity that was wonderful
Here we go Steelers, here we go
Pittbsurgh going to the Super Bowl
(and the Stanley Cup)
Mike Brown, the owner of the Cincinnati Bengals (one of the most unsuccessful owners in NFL history), will surely be backing John McCain (by default, I’d assume).
Of course, Brown thinks one play off appearance in 17 years (in the parity focused NFL no less!) doesn’t matter as long as they’ve had over 36 sell out games in a row. They have made expensive decisions on occasion. Nearly all poor and incompetent decisions though.
“Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!”
“That’s not enough, madam, we need a majority!”
Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose. And no, I don’t know how to type accents, so *pppttt*
You know, the Rooney’s have always been kind of alright, which is kind of surprising for football team owner’s.
