Pittsburgh Steelers chairman and Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Rooney hoisted the Lombardi Trophy for the last time yesterday, at the age of 84! Taking over the day-to-day operation of the team in 1969 from his legendary father Art, Rooney brought in Chuck Noll to coach, drafted Mean Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, won four championships in six seasons, elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000, and won two more championships with Roethlisomething! Solid football career! He was also randomly named as the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland in 2009! What? I know! Odd!
And the Buonins extend their lead with a fourth death and 26 points on Rooney! Their career best year keeps on rolling! Well done!
Replacement pick due by next Friday!
